Robert Watson born Auldearn 1888
« on: Tuesday 09 September 14 15:45 BST (UK) »
Afternoon,

Wondering if anyone can help me please?

Looking for information on Robert Watson.

He was born in Auldearn, Nairnshire in 1888 to Robert (b 1855 d 1912) and Elizabeth nee MacDonald (b 1862 d 1944).

He married Jane Chisholm Lumsden in Inverness in 1918

Known Census info is
1891 Census ... Clunas Buildings, Auldearn .. age 2
1901 Census ... Lethen Road Auldearn .... scholar
1911 Census ... Firthside Bothy, Nairn .... domestic gardener

I am led to believe that he served in the Army Service Corps in WW1 but have not found any evidence to prove this.

Looking for any information on
1. Military service
2. What happened to him after 1918 as I cannot find any info
3. When he died

Many thanks in advance for any and all comments received
