I have these bare bones of early generation of my family
and hoping you can flesh them out for me  ;D


Finlay Morrison c 1750 Strond Isle of Harris  m?  Wife? Children?

son
Kenneth Morrison c 1780 m?    Mary MacSween
* John   m  Ann McKay
* Sarah  m in  Nova Scotia  Christopher McLeod
* Donald c1808 m1831 in Nova Scotia Catherine McAskill
* Angus  c1811  died 1885 in Nova Scotia
* Mary    m    Duncan Kempt
* Catherine    m  Norman Ferguson
* Anaeas   m  Jane McKay
* Margaret


I am unsure if Kenneth and Mary emigrated to Nova Scotia with their children
but seeking birth confirmation for all in Scotland.  And marriage dates/death dates where possible.

Hope this is clear

It's going to take me a while to digest and make sense of all this data....
darn it's no fun getting old - the brain cogs don't work so well ...

Arrrrghh  at first I thought it might be an easy tracking because of the unusual name
'Asenath' - BUT its crazy making isn't it.....

I'm sure of Asenath Matheson b.1888 d.1972 married Daniel J Morrison b.1874 d.1966
and I think she is dau of John Matheson b.1834-d.? and his wife Asenath nee ???   b.1840-d.?

I found these entries last evening:
1871 CENSUS
Baddeck Nova Scotia Canada
John Matheson age  36  Married Seaman, Scottish, Presb. b.Nova Scotia
Asenath Matheson age 31 Married, Scottish, Presb. b.Nova Scotia

Margaret Matheson age 4 b.Nova Scotia
Mary Ann Matheson age 6 b.Nova Scotia

1881 CENSUSBaddeck
Victoria Nova Scotia Page 34
John Matheson age 46 Married Seaman,
Asenath Matheson age 42 WifeAngus age 18
Mary Ann age 16
Maggie age 14
Alexie  B age 12   and Ann
Roderick J age 10William J. Matheson   age 8

yes the adoptee has resolved his bio parents - already had the mother info it was the Morrison father he had been looking for .  The excellent info you had provided helped him get to it and he now has family in that sense.

So it is the earlier generations I'm looking for - for myself as I am descended from Nova Scotia Morrison as well.  BTW we do have matched DNA

Therefore I've posted this here in Canadian lookups.  Daniel J Morrison b1874 in Nova Scotia - who were his siblings/parents?

 ;)
