Bonar Bridge, Scotland
« on: Sunday 21 May 17 21:55 BST (UK) »
Hi,
 I am looking for information on Isabella Levy born I believe Monroe.  She came to Canada in the early 1900's and settled near Windsor Ontario.  If anyone has any information on her family and early life it would be greatly appreciated.

Well, you don't give us much information as to age, but scotlandspeople only has two women named Isabella Munro born in the parish of Bonar between 1855 and 1895, one born in 1856 and one in 1863. Is either of these a possibility?

Thank you for the speedy replies,

 Looking at what I have right now, I must apologize for I have the names mixed up.  She was born Ross on Ardins farm outside Bonar.  She was born Dec 1891, I don't know if she married but had a child named Munroe and later married a James Dunlop McDonald Levy and had more children.  They came to Canada in the1920's and she died Dec 1974.
 What I would like to know if possible who was Monroe and what happened to him? Also how would one go about finding out if there are any living relatives in the area?  This is not so much for me, but my grandchildren,  for this is on my son in laws side.
 Any way thanks for any help you can give and sorry for the mix up.

I don't think anyone can help much here without any info. to go on?

How do you know of this child?
How do you know his surname was Monroe yet you don't give his forename?
Did he go to Canada?

What info. do you have about him?

Once you provide parents names there may be siblings on census' who stayed here, married & had families?

You need to tread carefully when tracing living descendants, especially in relation to possible illegitimacy or unknown of marriages. They may not be aware of this, they may not be interested in making contact with you, and you could be met with denial or animosity. It is possible that you will not be welcomed with open arms as a long lost relative.  :)

I don't see a marriage for Isabella to a Monroe with variants.

Could this be them & if so the Monro children would have been step-siblings?

1901

Rhenamain House, Creich, Bonar, Sutherland

James Ross Head Married 46 1855 Farmer born Kincardine, Ross & Cromarty
Mary   Ross   Wife   Married 45   
William Munro Step Son 15
Hughina Munro Step Daughter 12
Isabella Ross Daughter 9
John   Ross   Son   8   
Donald Ross Son 4
