William Bruce + Watson
« on: Wednesday 04 November 15 13:59 GMT (UK) »
Please help me find a death for William Bruce, husband of Agnes Watson. I believe they married in 1840 Garvock. I think I've found him on the 1881 census still alive in St Cyrus and on the death certificate of his son William he's noted as being deceased and that was in 1904. So a death date during that time frame seems likely

Can't easily see a likely death for Agnes in Scotland  ???

Was she noted as deceased on the 1904 death cert. for son William ?

Hello Ev,
Thank you very much for finding me this information, yes both parents were noted as being deceased on Williams death cert so I'm pretty sure you've found the right ones. Thank you very much for your help  :)
