Stirlingshire / Re: Alexander Smith 1873-1962.

Hi folks, first of a thank you for taking the time to reply plus an apology for lack of information. I suppose in this long long trail dealing with our forebears, there are many queries. sometimes the info we have to hand turns out to be incorrect. To answer the questions you posed. The source of the certificate is a cousin in Australia, who, much to my envy has the medals of our grandpa, Alex. smith He has previously supplied me with pictures of him and other family members. The info re Alex. Smith and his service, I gleaned the info from a book listing those who returned from WW1 to Denny, his name and with whom he served, i.e 13th. btn. Royal Scots was contained in the book. It is not to hand just now. I don`t believe his service records are extant. I do have his service no but that is lost at present. all packed up hoping to move. Again thanks.

Hi folks just received the attached cert. It is attributed to my maternal g/father above named. He served with the Royal Scots, 13th. btn. Throughout the war. So I am confused by the Special Constable issue Is there somewhere I can glean further info on this certificate. Thank you.

Hi Neale & Carole W.
I have tried S/P. used up quite a few credits trying for pot luck We have no clue to her husband`s surname, so cannot look for death cert. due to that prob. Cannot find a death cert using maiden name plus mother`s maiden name  So stuck. Ta. N.B. Peter the father was a lock keeper and the family would have had to vacate the house upon his death in   1915. S/P note the death in Inverness.

Hi folks, brick wall. In the 1911 census For Kilmallie, address Corpach Canal Cottage, was the residence of my wife forebear, Peter Macpherson, his wife and children specifically Margaret aged 14.
 We know of three children born to her Moira, John and William. Sometime after the census we believe she moved to the Glasgow area, where she married ? Have searched Scotland`s people but no luck identifying husband or marriage. Any ideas welcome. Thanks.

Witnesses,  John Watt and George Watt, both in New Pitsligo.

Well I am flabbergasted, to my 72 yr.old head, I have done quite a lot of searching, for family first time in the U.S. I am so thankful to all who have answered so far and wish to express my deep appreciation for your sterling efforts, more especially so quickly.

Many thanks to all present and future contributors.

From a cold damp Scotland.
