How did you find William's birth place in Ireland?

Guesswork based on the fact that the place of birth given for John Calder/Cather junior and senior in the 1851 census is given as Co Tyrone ;D Clearly it relies on John and William being actually related - which in itself is pure guesswork, as we don't have a death for William. I know that John junior, Robert and Eleanor were all the children John Cather and Mary Ann Maxwell, and as Robert is with William in 1841, it's a reasonable assumption that they are brothers - but an assumption is all that it is.

I haven't tried pursuing the Co Tyrone angle to see if these families could have come from there. The Irish records for this period are quite tricky to track down - for example, the marriage records on the GRONI website don't start until 1845...

Also, it makes sense that Mary has the second name Ann, but I am curious how you found out.

Hmm - I think I might have made that up - or worse still, taken it from an Ancestry tree - my bad  ::) Do you have the death records for Sarah Calder and William Calder junior? They should confirm their mother's name.

Ruth I have gone over all my notes from the past dozen or so years and am now able to fit it all together.  Also, I found a baptism for Mary Anne Johnston in Tyrone, on March 22, 1808 which fits with the estimated birth time.

Thanks again for your input!!

Have a great day.

Eileen

.... and that's only the Protestant marriages.
