Margaret Jane Caskey Seatter, born Stronsay c 1872
« on: Thursday 02 April 15 02:48 BST (UK) »
Does anyone have any information on Margaret Jane Caskey Seatter or descendents? She was the 2nd  daughter of William Seatter and Ann Davidson Brodie. She married William Holland MacKenzie and they had at least one child, also named William. The three were living in Edinburgh around 1908 as I have seen a postcard sent by Margaret to relatives in New Zealand. Her brother George Seatter emigrated to New Zealand and has descendents there while a second brother David has relatives in the US.

Have you tried looking for them on the 1911 census on Scotland's People? You can search for free but will need to buy credits to view any records. If you have a year of birth for Margaret you should be able to narrow it down a bit as there are a lot of results without any ages given.

On SP there is a death in 1958 in Edinburgh City for a Margaret Jane MacKenzie other name Seater (one t) who may be her. Once again, if you have a year of birth for her you may be able to determine more accurately if this is likely to be your Margaret.

oops, sorry, I should take more care - I see you have her year of birth as c1872. :-[ Good news is that it all tallies for the above death to be the correct Margaret.

Thanks for that. Definitely the right person. Found that death record on Scotlands People and also the birth record of William Holland McKenzie in May 1905 which enables me to put dates on the postcards I have as twice the age of the young William Holland is recorded.

Thank you akc. That is Margaret's parents and brother. I have now located Margaret's resting place. She is buried in the Easter Cemetery, Edinburgh with her husband and son, both named William MacKenzie. Margaret died in 1958, her husband in 1959 and their son in 1954. I have no further information on her brother David Brodie Seatter but as he also lived in Edinburgh he may be buried in the same cemetery.
