Nottingham Completed Lookup Requests / stella wealthall COMPLETE (THANK YOU ALL)
« on: Wednesday 29 July 09 09:50 BST (UK)  »

trying to get info on a Stella Wealthall  born c. 1884 nottingham ?

we can find her marriage to James foster  in nottingham 1911  and a child born before the marriage in 1909.  but it all draws a blank .

on  if you put in Stella it comes up with Metta Wollthrall ?????   but even that name doesn't go any where .

any help  with this puzzle would be most welcome .

thanking you in anticipation


Dumfriesshire / beattie or other surname
« on: Tuesday 04 December 07 03:28 GMT (UK)  »
following from a fantastic start that gadget gave me  i am now at a puzzle.  :D

i am trying to find the children of Margaret beattie of canonbie . I was given the children as follows (not by gadget)
Francis Henderson  24/1/1863 canonbie
Robert jackson 26/2/1866 canonbie
thomas hornsby 1871 england ?
Elizabeth beattie 19/7/1861

i have been on family search  and on their IGI list batch c118141
have all the children  plus two more but all surnames  beattie ........................
Francis beattie 24/1/1863
Robert beattie 26/2/1866
Elizabeth beattie 3/3/1874
john beattie 19/7/1861
Robert beattie 25/1/1864
thomas hornsby can't find any where

i assume that there aren't two Margaret beattie's in canonbie having children on the same day with the same names ?!  i would assume that the only way i can sort this is by birth record on Scotland's people !?     

big question is entering them on ones family tree which surname would you use    the birth one  (assume beattie)  or  know by ?????????????

i just keep coming up with the most common names in canonbie  with littles hoggs a few Armstrong's  and now beatties !!!!!!!!!!!!

any comments  most welcome

Dumfriesshire / how do i find who's in there??? canonbie grave
« on: Sunday 03 June 07 03:58 BST (UK)  »
have just had my first visit to canonbie and was pleased to find on walking in the graveyard gate  the first stone i read was was my g.g.grandparents  Elizabeth Hogg and her husband William Little, with a ref to my g.grandmother dieing in Orton Westmorland England married to a John Beck. ( everything on the stone was correct )   but we wondered  why such a huge stone  and now wonder who else could be down there but not mentioned on the stone. also 3/4 of the way along the path we found their eldest sons grave (David little and wife Hannah)  again with space left on the stone .   the fantastic grave yard men were quick to point out hat these graves could hold up to 6 or 8 burials. now on the drive home  (a round trip in one day of 800 miles) we got to talking and now wonder who else could be in there !!!????    and how do we go about finding out ?  we have no grave ref  other than been very lucky and finding them on first look ...... any help would be fantastic.  does any rootsearcher live in Canonbie or Rowanburn ????     

many thanks Adrian
