Agnes looks to have been living with her maternal family for 1891 and in the US by 1900. From 1891:

James Herd 57 fisherman
Helen Ann Herd 23
Agnes Shain 10...as transcribed, corrected to Thain
Josiah Herd 7

Address Main Street 47

She arrived in Halifax, NS on 19 Mar 1898 on the 'Californian'.

There is a death showing on Scotlands People that you could check for an Elizabeth Herd who died in Aberdeen in 1916, aged 57. Scottish death certs include the names of parents for the deceased, if known to the informant.

Great stuff Monica.  I ran out of time yesterday so never got to fully look at Elizabeth Herd.  One of the causes of death was - Eryispelas 4 days. Nice to see photographs.

I like the description of her with her photo:

Betsy Herd
Betsy was a very strong woman, she was very good at crocheting and made the top that she is wearing.
