Completed with Thanks -Joan "Whitson",Halliburton 1782-1862
« on: Tuesday 23 October 12 00:55 BST (UK) »
Was attempting to find on Scots People ,the death record of Joan Whitson who married William Halliburton c 1820.
I am after her parents names........
It appears that William Halliburton born c 1800 died Oct 28 in Lauder ,Berwick and that Joan died May 12,1862 (not sure where) and that both are buried in the Lauder Churchyard.
Is it possible I am mistaken about her death date.
She appears in the 1861 census age 69 living with son Ralph Halliburton & his wife Janet and their family,at Blyth,Lauder,Berwick.
..Joan does not appear on the 1871 census.
Where might I be going wrong ?.....

Thanks Becky...I sure was pleased to receive your  update as I had seen that once before,as i always like to get a cert if possible ,I did order one and the writing was  yucky....it looked like Hewitson...but I am going to go with Whitson.
Would you believe I then ordered another cert of her sibling and ...he he he ..it said Weddle...I guess the son got mixed up.
I will stay with Whitson. My grandmother surname Bruce was from Lauder so all these names fit.
I have pulled out my MI from Lauder and will scrutinize the whole thing for more kin...Thanks again.
