    You mentioned you hadn't traced a marriage or death for Roseanna.     But it doesn't matter - this isn't the Roseanna you were referring to.     I made a mistake.

Guys, I am compiling a book of those from Newmains / Morningsideand Cambusnethan and am stuck with one of the guys, a William Vincent.  I have no address, no age, no rank or brigade.
There is another Vincent on the memorial,  a Malcolm Vincent could it have been his brother?
He had emigrated to Canada and he also fell.  Any help would be appreciated.
The book is not for profit by the way.

Thanks,

Swally

Hi Swally,  It is very possible that Malcolm Vincent was his brother.  I think this Malcolm Vincent was my grandfather.  Malcolm was the son of Thomas Vincent and Ann Fisher Vincent. I have copies of birth and marriage certificates.  Malcolm and Helen Vincent went as missionaries from Scotland to Minto, New Brunswick.  Malcom died in WWI and my grandmother returned to Scotland, and then to Newcastle after the War.

I hope this helps,

Dina

Dina,
Thanks so much for the reply, the book has since been printed but I will update the information.  Do you have a photograph of him?

Thanks,

Swally

Swally, Unfortunately, I have no photographs, only copies of the marriage certificate of Thomas and Ann Vincent, Malcom Vincent's birth certificate.  I have tried to send you copies but I get an error message saying the files are too large and I don't know how to reduce them Regards, Dina

am now trying to send you only Malcolm's birth certificate
