Thank you all three of you for this information I have gone back into Scotlandpeople this morning and bought the family in 1851 census

I thought the parents must have died
my task now is to find out the reason they landed at Westruther although I have somewhere a William Stark and Isobel Moir ?? living there who maybe the children's relatives

This is like starting from scratch again .I'm hoping through time to get my dead computer searched and receive all my findings again
Cheers

Berwickshire / Help with this Stark family in 1861Census Westruther Berwickshire
« on: Saturday 29 August 20 21:42 BST (UK)  »
I am busy searching back my Stark family as my computer has died and lost quite a lot of items
Tonight I thought I would look for m Stark family
Ive found this family marked paid so had another look
1861 there is a Barbara Stark deserted child aged 11 born  St Boswell
also her brother John aged 9 born Melrose ,William aged 7 also born Melrose and Elizabeth aged 5 born St Boswell the census shows no 17 Westruther
Above the Starks are shown at no 17

Margaret Dodd's aged 21 born Berwickshire
her daughter Margaret Dodd's aged 13 months and her sister Jean Dodd's aged 13 years old born Berwickshire
Could they all be of the same family I have searched Scotlandpeople for Barbara and her siblings to see who their parents are but had no luck

Thank you Dorrie had a busy day yesterday visits at the front gate with granddaughters and their little ones and baking
I have looked at findagrave and found a lot of this family
My wonder is did George and Christy have a son John or Kenneth or as well as my Alexander
I know its so far back that there are maybe no records

Getting a bit fed up with being isolated we are into our 8th week stating tomorrow  as the family asked us to go into it before the government told us to
Take care keep safe

Sutherland / John Kenneth McKenzie
« on: Saturday 02 May 20 15:16 BST (UK)  »
Not sure where to start here
My DNA show a John Kenneth McKenzie as a relative of mine he was born 25/7/1871 Pictou Canada
Died 27/7/1938
He Married Ellen Henderson b 1877    d 1955 
I have the family coming down the tree but need to know who John Kenneth's parents are and where he fits in my tree
I am in good contact with the lady who has John's tree in Ancestry as she was born in Canada and lives there she hasn't much information about her family in Scotland she thinks they came from Assynt and she remembers someone talking about a Donald McKenzie

this is what an old relative of hers gave her Kenneth McKenzie 1754-1833 he was the father of Alexander McKenzie 1784-1871 Alexander was the father of Isabella McKenzie 1813-1874 ( her maiden name was McKenzie and her first husband was Roderick McKenzie ) who married Donald McKenzie 1807-1842

So Isabella was a McKenzie and never changes her name though  married twice she had 3 children  Isabella and Donald are the parents of Daniel Deacon McKenzie
I have the rest of this family as I said above

My McKenzie 's are George McKenzie b 1749 I have no death Married Christy Polson no birth died 1867 they married 1770 don't know where their  son Alexander b 30/11/1775 died 1841 !!!!!! Alexander is the only family I have of George and Christy .I have the rest of this family too coming down the tree
Hope you can understand this
