Hello. James Johnston died July 23,1881 in Allegheny City, Allegheny Co., Pennsylvania and his wife was Jane Orr. His father was Matthew but I don't have his mother's name. Hoping that a death certificate or an obituary might reveal that. I do have many children for James and Jane but I don't know which ones were surviving at his death, and where they might be and who their spouses were.
Thanks for any help

Dublin / Marriage Robert Johnston, 1866, Dublin
« on: Sunday 28 April 24 04:36 BST (UK)  »
I have found a marriage of Robert Johnston to Rebecca Robinson in 1866 in the city of Dublin. But I canít read where each person is from as the writing is so faded.
Can anyone help me with the writing? Robert was a widower in 1866 and he had a son Edward Robinson Johnston, 1874 to 1878 who married Martha Russell Wilkinson in Glasgow in 1917 before emigration to Illinois. Son Edward and Martha were on the 1930 and 1940 censuses in Illinois.

Canada / Martha Johnston, border crossing, 1924
« on: Saturday 27 April 24 23:47 BST (UK)  »
Martha Johnston was born June 28, 1885 in Paisley, Scotland to Thomas Johnston and Jane Cockburn.
Martha had a daughter Leila Margerie Tavendale Aug 4, 1926 in Penticton BC, Canada
I cannot find a marriage between Martha Johnston and Alexander Edwards Tavendale but Alexander was single on the 1921 Penticton census.
I have found this entry for 1924 but don't know if it is the correct Martha, although thinking not.
Martha's mother was Jane Johnston nee Cockburn who was living in New York 1914-1924, after which she was living with her daughters in Penticton, BC. Jane died at the home of her son-in-law  A.E.Tavendale  May 6, 1934.
I have searched the Royal BC Museum Archives site for a BC marriage between Alexander and Martha. But perhaps it was in New York or in the USA. Also searched familysearch and Ancestry. Was there really a marriage??
Thanks for any help

Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Death Elizabeth MacDonald, July 26, 1932
« on: Tuesday 19 March 24 18:45 GMT (UK)  »
Elizabeth MacDonald nee Patterson was born abt 1868 in Sea Point, Cape Town, South Africa to William Patterson and Annie Crossett. She firstly married Henry William Bailey Apr 1912 (unverified) in England although I think they had many children prior to marriage, possibly starting with Elizabeth Emily Bailey abt 1886. Her husband Henry died Sept 25. 1915 and Elizabeth remarried to John MacDonald Oct 1917. John died 1935, unverified.
Ultimately, I am hoping to find the parents of Elizabeth's mother Annie Crossett, born abt 1843 in Ireland, who married William Patterson Feb 10, 1859 in Magherafelt COI, Ireland and they immediately emigrated to South Africa with son Wesley Wellington Patterson  being born at sea in 1860.  Annie died Aug 28,  1882 in Cape Town as per the Cape Times Newspaper of Aug 29, but I don't have Annie's death certificate. I know her father was John (deceased) as per Annie's marriage record in 1859 but I don't have her mother's name.
Thanks for any help.

According to the Waco Times Herald, Waco, Texas, Mar 1, 1912, Mary Jane Teeple died in Speegleville, Texas that morning. She was married to Samuel Teeple abt 1868 in Ontario, Canada and her maiden name was Irwin/Erwin. I am looking for the names of her parents which may be on a death certificate. I have not found her marriage in Ontario, Canada but their first child was Jennie M. Teeple May 18, 1869 in Thamesville, Chatham-Kent Municipality, Ontario, Canada.

United States of America / Robert Irvine, death, July 30, 1875
« on: Saturday 02 March 24 21:02 GMT (UK)  »
Robert Irvine died July 30, 1875 in the town of Blooming Grove, Orange Co., NY. Is there a death certificate naming parents, an obituary, or a community history book which gives more information about Robert? Looking for surviving siblings, in particular a married sister Eliza Johnston in Kinloss, Ontario. He was born in Co. Fermanagh, Ireland about 1821-1826. Wife was Annie nee McGregor who is on the 1880 census in Blooming Grove, Orange Co., NY. Robertís parents should be James Irvine and Elizabeth Hunter.
Thank you

United States of America / William Johnston, death June 27, 1877 Pennsylvania
« on: Wednesday 28 February 24 06:49 GMT (UK)  »
William Johnston was reportedly born May 19, 1814 in Co. Fermanagh, Ireland and reportedly died June 27, 1877 in Pennsylvania. Looking for his death certificate and an obituary to confirm his parents names and siblings. His parents may or may not be George Johnston and Susan Armstrong. Thanks for any help. Peggy
I do not know where in Pennsylvania that William died.

Canada / George Johnston, death, Nov 6,1911 Kinloss, Bruce Co., Ontario, Canada
« on: Wednesday 31 January 24 19:28 GMT (UK)  »
As per George's death certificate,he was born 1811 in Ireland and died Nov 6,1911 in Kinloss, Bruce Co., Ontario, Canada. His father was George but I would like to know his mother's name and where George was born exactly. Since he was  100 years of age, I thought perhaps there might be an obituary or a big party on his birthday.
George had married Eliza Irvine Mar 15, 1849 at the Registrar's Office in the Town of Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh but George's residence at the time  was the Town of Lisnarrick, Civil Parish of Derryvollen. Looks like Eliza's residence was Tullycreevey,Civil  Parish of Deveney.
They must have emigrated abt 1856 since their first child born in Canada was George Phibbs Johnston June 28,1857.
I don't find his death on findagrave but I did find this on familysearch.
Thanks for any help.
