Adam FORSYTH - Grandson, was the informant on Isabella Forsyth's death entry as he was on his father's death cert.

Many thanks for all that information.  From the burial records I got at the library it would appear Agnes FORSYTH was buried at Lochmaben.

Thomas's two sons died very young as did their father and were all in the grocery business.
 I wonder if this was why  Isabella FORSYTH their mother and her daughter went to Lochmaben to live after living at Caerlaverock.

Yes I agree with Lochmaben just quoted what Ancestry transcribed  ::) ::)

Not a problem  :).

Both Isabella MEIN (Forsyth) and her mother Isabella FORSYTH were on 1841/51/61 census for Caerlaverock.  James FORSYTH died August 1860 at Caerlaverock and 8 August  1860 John MEIN died. So, sometime between 1861 and 1867 both Isabellas moved to LOCHMABEN. Perhaps to be with their family.

About ten years ago, I tried to find lair records for one of my ancestors and had to go to the specific area office. I found out the appropriate one by phoning the D & G Council. They were all really helpful.

It might be worth phoning them to find out where the old lair books for Caerlaverock are.

Have found the burial places for Isabella Forsyth(Paisley) and daughter, Isabella MEIN (Forsyth). They are buried  with - husband & father James FORSYTH in Caerlaverock Churchyard.

Very happy :D

Now, waiting to hear from the D&G council as to whether there are headstones for the parents and two sons buried in Lochamben cemetery.

Hi, Just noticed this thread. The village is called BANKEND. There has never been a Bankhead (and I was born and raised there)
