Renfrewshire / Re: BLACK born Greenock
« on: Friday 02 July 21 14:58 BST (UK)  »
Thank you all for the time and effort you have gone to to point me in the right direction.
I am busy working my way through all the clues and guidance and have found the two babes that were John and Mary's first two, both died within days, if not hours of being born.

I will keep looking and working through the list
Much appreciated


Renfrewshire / BLACK born Greenock
« on: Thursday 01 July 21 18:05 BST (UK)  »
One of my ancestors, I believe was born in Greenock, in what then was Renfrewshire on 15 September 1842 , the son of John Black and Elizabeth Thompson.
I think I have hime emigrating to America in early 1890's as he appears to get married to ANN P GOODACRE in Sep 1892 in Washington DC.
I have them on the 1900 and 1910 US Census with one son born in Scotland to a first wife and five children to Annie.
Can anyone point me in the direction of any of these children after 1918, when John dies again in Washington DC?  I have looked on FindMyPast only, as I have the subscription.
There may be a number of chidlren of at least one of his sons, a George W Black born about 1903, who married, I think, Agnes Hopkins, born in North Carolina about 1900/1901
Any assistance would be gratefully received

Warwickshire / BLACKs in Stratford on Avon
« on: Thursday 06 May 21 17:44 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for descendants of Arthur James BLACK 1925 to 2003 and his wife Josephine E Ward 1928 to 2017, in the Stratford upon Avon Area, and Warwickshire.
He, I think is the son of Adam Sanderson Black 1891 to 1956  and Beatrice Moreton 1892 to ?
and he in turn is the son of James Black born in Dolphinton in Scotland in 1865 and married to Grace Somerville Sanderson, 1863 to 1957, who they were married at Kirkurd, in Peeblesshire on 20 July 1888.
The link on my tree appears to be through Grace Somerville Sanderson, whose father was Adam Sanderson, the son of David Sanderson (1795 to 1866) and Jean or Jane Black (1795 to 1876)
Jean / Jane being the sister of my 2x great grandfather, John Black 1803 to 1887 and his wife Elizabeth Thomson (1817 to 1879)

looking into these details, Elizabeth McLaren is actually his mother, who married a Daniel Peatie McLaren, in 1876.
She died in 1921, 20 th December  in Dalkeith
She had a further 7 children with Daniel and I am still trying to trace their details, but running out of SP vouchers very quickly!

Thanks Monica,
I looked at the travel details but unable to find anything on FindMyPast, nor his war service.
Yes he did 7 years in Dragoons and 5 years in Army Reserves, 1897 to 1909.

Will try the Australian records as you advise

Much appreciated

Berwickshire / Ramsay Dickson
« on: Tuesday 13 April 21 13:59 BST (UK)  »
has anyone any information about a RAMSAY DICKSON, born in 1872 in Dalkeith and in the Army from 1897, South Africa from 1899 till 1903, but where did he go after that?
He is related through his grandmother to the WIGHTMAN family , and ultimately to the Hopper family mainly in the Greenlaw area
his mother was Elizabeth Wightman Dickson, who married, in 1876, to a Daniel Pettie McLaren, after Ramsay was born in 1872.
I think Ramsay has a sister, living at Edinburgh Road in Dalkeith in 1909, i.e. when he was finally discharged from the Army Reserve.
