Kiltarlity
« on: Sunday 09 July 17 18:46 BST (UK) »
Hi Folks

I have yet to find a bmd cert or Parish entry for a direct ancestor. He is Alexander Fraser born - according to a baptism record of child 1855, in 1825. 

I cannot find the baptism, or his marriage - year and place both on the same record.  All in Kiltarlity, Alexander  married Rebecca Chisholm in Camault Muir in 1849 . Are there records missing? 

His death, is between 1891 and 1901 but having spent a heap of credits looking for the obvious contenders I will wait until I am next at the archives for more obscure entries. 

It is the Parish registrar that puzzles me? ??? ???

Inverness Courier - 13 Apr 1897
Died at 26 Shore Street, Inverness on the 11th inst, Rebecca Chisholm, widow of the late Alex Fraser, Contractor. Deeply regretted. Funeral today (Tuesday) at 1 o'clock P.M to Kirkhill burying ground. All friends invited.

Perhaps they shared a common grave. Another avenue to follow.

Yes, that is Alexander in the Castle wind 1891 - then Rebecca is a widow at the next census.

All deaths for this name with a five year give/take in Inverness has not turned up the correct one.

I am not sure if that is the correct entry for the marriage  - these are two different churches - they are both still there.

The baptism entry in 1855- I will try to attach the snip.

Now the death in 1897 is not the one I thought was correct - this would make her 16 when married ( young but not impossible) I went with the 1908 one?  I will check the 1901 census to see if I am sure she was alive then or I may have to look at that death to see who was the witness.  It was a neighbour in the one I bought!  I cannot go by the parents as I dont have a baptism for her either

Try again!



Update - I was wrong - I had the wrong cert!  So this was her at Shore street - the son lived at Castle Street!  So at 64 when she died - yikes that means the age 1855 is wrong too for her birth, plus all the census!  So more likely wrong age given at death registration.  As for her parents no further forward as - just a line Chisholm is given, for both mother and father.

Thanks for your help.

1855 is when daughter Ann was born https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XYGJ-NXS (btw, the cert you have is for a statutory birth not a baptism).

Which of their children are you connected to?

Possible entry from SP for Rebecca's christening from the parish registers in Kitarlity:

REBEKA CHISHOLM, parents HUGH CHISHOLM/MARY FRASER
21/08/1828

Can't easily see her though in 1841  :-\
