Further to the above the 1881 census has

Rosina Soutter age 37 born England and a widow showing as a housekeeper in Falkirk with a boarder called Olaf Pederson.

The same census has Bessie Annie Souttar showing as living with her grand aunt Ann Storrar in Kirkcaldy. Sister Rose is with her grandparents William Soutter and Betsy Davie in Kirkcaldy.

There is also a marriage in  Boness,West Lothian in1882 which would suggest that mother Rosina remarried.

Ref 663/1 has Rose Soutter or Stanley marrying a Jacob T Jacobson or Hermansen.

This is the naturalization record for the David who was married to Elsie Maria and living in Missouri in 1920. From birth details he appears to be the son of Robert Millar and Jane Nee Dunn born in Perth in 1863.

Such good info, Isobel and William  :)

What an interesting man Alexander Davie Soutter appears to have been. His obit that you have included Isobel certainly gives you a sense of him and his character.

Also good to have you confirm the origins of the David Millar from Perth and his origins. Certainly confused the picture with so many coincidences with him and David, son of John and Euphemia  ::)

I do .. either theirs together or he was helping get her out of a bad situation .. making inferences of course .. if it was she was abt 7 months pregnant when they got married .. just assumptions but Manhattan is a big place 😊
