I log on to.my site and my sisters site at library as well as the generic one.

This is a fascinating story I'm really impressed by all the wOrk that has gone into it

Thank you. I'll look into making the tree on Ancestry.

I agree; it's a fascinating mystery for me, and a very frustrating one. I'm not a romantic sort of person, but I think it's a romantic story, and I'm intrigued by it. This past week, I've done very little research, as I've been concentrating on this mystery for six months, spending so much time every day on it, and I decided that it was time to take care of other things in life for a few days.I'm starting to think that I will never find her. It should be rather simple: she has to be a daughter of either George Scott's brothers or a generation back (to George's father), but there are so many men with those names born around the same year in Birmingham, if indeed that is where they are from. And, if they are not from Birmingham, the thought of researching all of England, Scotland, or Ireland for such a common name is enough to make me scream! I feel as if I am going around in circles.

She appears to be Margaret Robina Scott born 20 Sep 1846 died 20 Jan 1925 (needs double checking).

She married  Valentine Dyer James Rickcord on 21 Sep 1867 in St Germans in Cornwall.

Thank you. I'm without the Internet at home for a few days, so I will provide a better reply then.  :)
