Hi Aghadowey!  Thank you so much for all you have done for me all the researching I am sure was very time consuming then recording it all and sending it to me I am truly grateful.  I did not know  that Samuel and Margaret had sons Robert Charles Price Shields and a Samuel Shields but as time goes on I am beginning to see there is a lot I don't know.  Today I did some research on Samuel and Margarets son John my Grt. Grandfather and I think I may have found his birth record in Scotland date of birth 1855 it is hard to read very poor writing but it requires more investigating. I will let you know.  Thanks again for everything you have been so kind.

Robert Charles Shiels was baptised 1859 at Churchtown Presbyterian Church and seems to have added Price to his name. I found his brother Samuel after I discovered Samuel named a son Robert Charles. Samuel's marriage record was interesting as it listed his residence as Seygorry (named after St. Guaire), his father as a ploughman (a more skilled job than 'labourer') and Margaret Anderson was a witness (she also lived in Seygorry and was connected to my grandfather's family).

An 1855 Scottish birth certificate is a goldmine of information so let us know if you are having trouble deciphering it all.

Hi!  Well I am back to the drawing board the Birth Record that I thought might me my Great Grandfather John Shiels (Shields) had the wrong parents!!  So disappointed but I am still determined to find a birth record for this man so I am going through all the Births for the name Shiels and Shields in Scotland from 1855-1862 so I can rule out the possibility of him being born there.  I am still going on the fact that his marriage registration (second marriage) has his parents listed as Samuel Shields and Margaret Martin  and his birthplace Renfrewshire.  I may never find out but at least I know I did my best.  Thank you Aghadowey for all your help and anyone else who has been following my story.

Bad luck that. Other spellings might be Sheals, Sheills, Sheil, Sheilds...

Haven't had any luck tracing Mary O'Hara yet  :-\

As it turns out I am tracing this family who cross into mine. Thomas Price Shields married Jane(Jeanie) Herriot. His parents were Samuel Shields  a Land Stewart and Margaret Martin who were both deceased by 27 Apr 1900. . Samuel died in 1941 in Glasgow. Will look inot it more as time goes on as i have just started on this line.
Cheers

Good Morning!  Just wanted to let you know that if you are referring to Samuel Shiels Father of Thomas Price Shields his death date is October 14 1878 in County Londonderry.  If I can be of any help with your research on the Shiels/Shields family I would be happy to try.
