Australia / Elizabeth Henrich from Mitchell in Queensland
« on: Thursday 04 February 21 18:17 GMT (UK)  »
I was looking for some information about my ancestor. Elizabeth Hollywood who married Peter James Henrich. She stayed in Eastern Creek, Mitchell, Queensland. Unfortunately she died in a house fire on 14th June 1935. I was trying to find out about what happened to her. If anyone can give me any info. It would be appreciated.

Yours,

World War One / Re: Medal Card help required for Bernard McSheaffrey.
« on: Saturday 02 January 21 14:26 GMT (UK)  »
Thanks Jim, Do we know what campaigns he took part in?
Bernard McSheaffrey was born Glasgow 1898 and died 1943 Glasgow. He married Margaret Mills. He was the son of William McShaffrey and Mary Hamill. I think this could be the one who was awarded the medals.
There was also a Bernard McSheffrey who was born 1833 Donegal. He married Caroline Shields and he died 1894 Baldernock, Stirlingshire. Bernard and Caroline had a son also called Bernard. Who was born 1869 Baldernock. Seem to be a few variations of the surname.

World War One / Medal Card help required for Bernard McSheaffrey.
« on: Friday 01 January 21 20:45 GMT (UK)  »
I have the medal card for the above person. He was in the Scottish Rifles. He was awarded the Victory Medal. It has D/103 B19 and page 2321 beside it. Underneath it has do. do. So he was awarded the British Medal too. His Rank was Pte. He has two Regtl. Numbers. Wondering if he served in two different campaigns. The first Regtl Number is 36823 and the second one is 63212. Hoping you can help change the info into a readable form for me.

Thanks Monica,
I found the photo of the flower shop on Ancestry. I also have an Ancestry account. So I have been looking at the various family members. But if anyone wishes to keep contributing to this thread. They are quite welcome to do so.

Just wondering if anyone has any old photographs or information on the above two premises. I believe the scrapyard was owned by Victor Fox. Victor was born 1891 in Gallowgate, Glasgow and died 1954 in Buchanan Street, Glasgow. As I am working on the Fox family tree from Glasgow on behalf of a friend.
Or if anyone has any information on the Florist's Shop that was ran by Mary Fox in Glasgow. I'm afraid I do not know it's location. But in the 1881 Census. It has Peter Fox, age 50, Confectioner and Florist, born Ireland. Peter's Wife was Elizabeth, age 40. And their Daughter, Mary Fox, age 18, who is a Florist. Elizabeth and Mary were born Glasgow.   

Yours,

Perthshire / Re: Welsh family from Crieff

Hello Harry,
No I'm a railway enthusiast and I just chose the name Wilton Endeavour. It was the name of a diesel locomotive. Named by ICI Chairman Thomas Hutchinson back on 22nd July 1983 at ICI Wilton works. There is no reference to the Wilton parish.

Hello Colin,
Yes thanks for the info. I have all the info that I require for the moment.

Stirlingshire / Re: Life in Kilsyth 1850 -1910

The books that I have by Mr William Chalmers are called "Faces and Places" of Kilsyth. They contain a series of pictures taken around the Kilsyth area from years gone by.
My Dad has several of them and he was a good friend of Mr Chalmers before my Dad passed away.
