I had not previously known he was deceased by 1866 until i posted about it today. William's death record was hard for me to read (i have poor sight) for some parts of it but i had a lovely lady decipher it for me and let me know as at the time i could only make out the profession on the register. I would have passed this information on before hand otherwise.

Thank you so much for the information on Helen Kirkland's family i will certainly follow this up. I will be sure to also check the 1861 census to see if i can track down Alexander. I will look to get the birth record for him from SP also.

I did not know he had another son so that is a huge help! I will follow up on him and see what i can come up with.

I do think i may have found a birth entry for him which lists his mother as Elspat Holm and father as Alexander Fraser in Resolis, Ross and Cromarty, Scotland.
What makes you think that this could be his baptism? The 1851 census says he was born in Nairn, not in Ross and Cromarty.

I'm just making notes on any that i find around the dates of 1785 so that if i do confirm it i don't have to search it out again. I don't want to rely on just census records. I do know that he was dead by 1866 so he died sometime between 1836 (after his wife died) and 1866 when his son died so i don't believe he will be on any census records after at least 1861.

Ahh ok haha! I did wonder what Militia was referring to and have been trying to find out more but no luck so far.

I do think i may have found a birth entry for him which lists his mother as Elspat Holm and father as Alexander Fraser in Resolis, Ross and Cromarty, Scotland. No way to confrm this yet but i hsve made a note so i can come back to it if i need to.

So does that mean they are both from that parish? I just assumed it was customary saying they wer both married in this parish. As i say i am still very new to this and trying to understand records.

Does it say on his marriage record of 1811 what town or Parish he was from?

I can't find any mention of which town or parish he was from on his marriage record but then it is quite difficult to read. I will post a copy of it. The marriage took place in Dundee.

I have been unable to find any death record for him so can't say if this is him on any of the census records. I am also struggling to find any other children Alexander and Helen had.

I don't know how you found them but thanks so much! That's a huge help for me cause i was coming up blank, no idea what i'm doing wrong but sometimes SP just doesn't like me!

I couldn't find the digital copy on Scotlands People, kept saying not found even with the fuzzy matching and wild card so don't know if i am doing something wrong but i did get other records from there.

I haven't found them as of yet in the 1841 or 1851 census :(

So after a few hours of research i finally confirmed William's death record which was in Tradeston in November 1866. His parents listed as Alexander Fraser and Helen Fraser nee Kirkland. Wahoo! Feel like i am getting somewhere now. So the marriage transcript i found must be the correct one but i can only find the names and the date, i can't find a digital copy of it anywhere. Going to try and find their death transcripts as hopefully their parents names will be on there and i can go from there as i do not yet know Alexander or Helen's birth dates.
