Robert Fraser
« on: Saturday 15 August 15 01:59 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for more info on my 3rd great-grandfather. His name appears to have been Robert Bruce Fraser, with his father possibly Alexander. It looks like he had a twin sister Margaret. Robert immigrated to the US sometime before 1856 (which is when he married in Illinois). Has anyone come across him?

What I have so far, though I have some doubts about it, is this:

BIRTH: DECEMBER 1836 Banchory-Devenick, Kincardineshire, Scotland
DEATH: 11 SEP 1905 Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, USA

Married to Hanna Shain (or Sheehan)

Children: William E, Catherine Ann, Daniel, John, James, Mary.

Hmm.....

You will need them to proceed as thats the only route unless someone has spent their money on buying the certs.

Preferably his marriage as it's his own word not a 3rd party.

Can I ask why you think his father could be Alexander.
