I see this death on Isle of Skye 1855 for an Allan McDonald who would be born 1770...is this possibly your kin?

   
ALLAN NICOLSON MACDONALD
age: 85
died: 1855
110/ 59
Duirinish

If it was the 1855 doc would provide good parental clues. If not the right Allan then apologies.

Sarah's mother Mary Edwards died 1912. Her father John died 1934... also her brother Alfred died that same year 1934.  Sarah was youngest of 5 siblings.

Welcome to Rootschat!  ;D

I believe this is her info from the GRO site:

Birth:

 DANDO, SARAH  ELIZABETH JANE     Mother's maiden-name: EDWARDS     
GRO Reference: 1883  D Quarter in CARDIFF  Volume 11A  Page 305

Death:

Name:    Age at Death (in years): 
DANDO, SARAH        58 
GRO Reference: 1944  S Quarter in CARDIFF  Volume 11A  Page 301

The math on date of birth doesn't quite work out compared to age at death (1883 -1886)...but that is pretty close.

Re: 1806 birth of Walter Barron Joass ... I see that others are having a hard time finding his birth cert and instead quote his military documents for the DOB of 22 Mar 1806 and the death in Spain 1 Aug 1858.

I know that Walter jr.'s mother is Elizabeth Barron because Walter Sr. re-married my grandmother Ann McKay in 1807 after the death of Elizabeth... and his middle name is Barron. I cannot find his birth cert though... Tried under many spellings. It could be simply a missing doc... not sure where it is. It might pop up with further deep-searching.

Were you interested specifically in info on Captain Walter Barron Joss? Or are you interested in the parents as well ,Walter Joass sr. (whom I'm related to) and Elizabeth Barron?

Here is the correct info for Walter Barron Joass's parents:

ELIZABETH BARRON
Parents:
JAMES BARRON/ISOBEL BRUCE

I love it when I do a general internet search for family-tree names and then a link leads back here to Rootschat! I just searched for my Joass/Joss family and was lead to this thread. I should have guessed.

My great grandfather (x's) is Walter Joass 1780 of Banffshire. His son Walter was born 22 MAR 1806  at Macduff. Walter sr. married Elizabeth Barron in 1803:
   
WALTER JOASS
   
ELIZABETH BARRON/FR306 (FR306)
01/01/1803
155/
10 341
Gamrie

She died young and Walter sr. married my grandmother Ann McKay in 1807:
   
WALTER JOASS
   
ANNE MCKAI/FR271 (FR271)
06/08/1807
155/
10 274
Gamrie and Macduff

The son of above Walter sr. and Elizabeth Barron is Walter Barron Joass born 22 MAR 1806 Macduff, Banffshire. He is the son of Walter's first wife Elizabeth Barron.

Walter Joass jr. married Phyllis Watson in 1833 in Tynemouth. He went on to die in Spain in 1858.He was known as Captain Walter Barron Joss.
