We have two Joseph Dias in the family tree.
Joseph Dias the father was born 1856-10-07 and lived until 1930-03-09.  He was a butcher.
Joseph Dias (his son) was born 1888-08-12 and died around 1918.

No record of Horsburgh in our tree.

Alexander and Margaret (Dias) Henderson are our known Canadian ancestors.

My wife is a granddaughter of Isabella Dias.  The story that was handed down by her mother was that Mary McGill met an untimely death from pneumonia (we believe around 1893?) and Joseph gave his children up for an adoption of sorts.  I found a record indicating that he remarried a Christina Weir in 1907, but I haven't been able to confirm that.

My wife Tammy (Frees) Koos is a granddaughter of Isabella (Dias) Scott.  We're looking for some information about this family as well, specifically the wedding date for William Scott and Isabella.  We have a lot of correspondence written by Isabella to her daughter Phyllis (Scott) Frees who relocated to the United States.

Haydn, I also sent you a PM.
