Death:

[Son (?) of Maggie nee Rowles & John Cameron.]

1988/46307   Cameron   Alexander Lancelot   24 August 1905

Although their daughter was registered as Maggie, birth date 28.6.1903, I think her death was registered as:

1903/5256   Cameron   Mary Maggie   1M

Date of death was 28.7.1903.

Thanks once again to all who have helped with the research and links, especially Minniehaha who has given me loads to go on. My apologies for not replying sooner but I have been away.

What amazes me is the similar Christian names between some of these families and my grandmother's family in London which leads me to suspect that they were in contact with each other.
 
Lucy2 - I did receive the Caroline Alexander letter thank you.
