James Stewart was a cabinet maker and also a soldier.

Are you just hoping for living relatives to read this, or do you want further information on  the family?


For some reason I wasn't alerted to the fact that you had replied to my posting.
In short, both would be nice! I hold loads of information on Donald and his family prior to their move to Australia. Any living relatives may be interested in this.

Maureen - we have a connection!
I have John Crab who married Isobel Hampton 17/3/1753 at Fordoun, Kincardine, Scotland.
They had 6 children - Margaret Crab (my gggg gandmother) born 3/8/1757 married Alexander Tevendale 12/12/1778 at Fordoun.
I will look out my records and e-mail you direct.

Hi John my interest is Margaret Crab DOB 1757 Fordoun, Scotland m. Alexander Tevendale 1778. They had 11 children that I have found & one, Mary Ann Tevendale, was my GG Grandmother. Margeret Crab had at least 4 siblings of which one, William, was her twin. She also had two half siblings. John Crab, her father was married twice & I have all those details if you would like them. John's DOB 12/4/1726 death 6/9/1809. John's father was Robert Crab & grandfather James Crab. I am trying to find Robert's DOB & date of marriage & to whom. I think it may be to Margaret Carneggie in 1720 but have not proved this link yet. Perhaps you could help?

I think your James was from Perthshire. Mine is from Edinburgh and definitely had no Joseph in the tree.

Sorry, I've been out the loop for a quite a while.

My James Stewart & Margaret McNaughton didn't have a son Joseph. We have no Australian connections.

I hope you find your one!

Hi Sheryl

When you say James Stewart had a son Joseph - which James Stewart is this? Is he the son of James and Margaret (McNaughton)?

My grandmother's sister was called Eliza Jane Constant Forbes. She was born in 1901.
The original Eliza Jane Constant (born 1847) married  Alexander Forbes in 1866.
I think we have a connection!

I am looking for a Margaret Somerville who had a child (David) with James Logan of Govan. James was born 1825 so Margaret may have been born thereabouts too. I can find no record that they married.

Their child, David Logan, was born in 1847 in Paisley.

My Margaret may have been a daughter of one the boys you mention?
