South Africa / Christina McCallum Blair
« on: Sunday 17 September 23 20:10 BST (UK)  »

Christina McCallum Blair (Twin with brother John) born 21 02 1899 in Barrhead, Glasgow, Scotland. Parents Margaret McAllister and Alexander Martin Blair. Not having any success finding a marriage or death for her in South Africa. Most of the family lived in Grahamstown, Cape Province.

On Sept 10th 2023 you provided a Death and Probate information for her aunt Euphema McAllister  and signature on one of Euphemia's Documents. was C.Blair. dated 1968

It would be appreciated if you would help me find something to establish, Marriage or Death as I don't seem to be very good at researching all the South African Collections on Family Search.

Thanks, Dooker

South Africa / Euphemia Mcallister & Family
« on: Saturday 09 September 23 20:21 BST (UK)  »
Euphemia and her father Ronald went to Grahamstown Cape Province South Africa.  Also Ronalds brother John and his family and son in law Alexander Martin Blair. Ronald and John's sister also went with them.
Found most of the Deaths or Probate records. 

Have been unable to establish any record for Euphemia other than signing  her father Ronald's Death Record in 1900. She did go back to Scotland and returned in 1902 with The Blair Family

Euphemia was born in Greenock in 1872 , parents Ronald Mc Allister and Christina Mc Callum

Any help appreciated.  Dooker

Ronald and John McAllister married two McCallum sisters.  The sisters died in 1874 and 1888. The brothers born 1840 and 1849 respectfully, were both joiners/carpenters. Last information I have is Scottish Census 1891.

Ronald had 3 children, Margaret, Euphemia and Christina.  Margaret married Alexander Martin Blair 1898, had twins and were all on 1911 Census at Barrhead. Her marriage witness was Euphemia McLellan, her cousin from Cambusnethan
Christina died 1874 also her mother, Christy.
Euphemia last on 1891 Census with father Ronald and aunt Mary McAllister. at Ardrossan.

John had 3 children Mary, John and Duncan.
English census 1901 had a John 23, John 55 and Duncan 22 Not verified.
Mary nothing.

Ronald and John McAllister parents, as per their marriage Certs were John McAllister b1813 and Margaret Murphy b 1806

I have used all my resources, Ancestry, Find My Past, Family Search, Ireland, Immigration but fail to find. Ronald and dau Euphemia, John , sons John and Duncan and daughter Mary.

Scottish Census 1921will be out later, as not taken until June 1921 but I am trying to complete my research on the main family who are Hyndmans

Any help will be most gratefully received.

Thanks Dooker

Argyllshire / John McMurchy born
« on: Thursday 10 September 20 19:14 BST (UK)  »
John McMurchy born in Saddell on 03 05 1806, father Archibald McMurchy, mother Mary Hyndman.

John McMurchy born abt 1814(Census date) Campbeltown, married Helen Tait, in Frontenac Quebec. This tree is on Family Search.  Tried Rootschat Canada for immigration, no luck.

Any Kintyre McMurchy's know about either John McMurchy and families. He is not the John McMurchy married to Jean Colville, different parents.

Trying to determine if John born 1806 and John born abt 1814 are one and the same person.  Difficult to verify and I like to be at least almost sure.

Thanks Dooker

Argyllshire / Hyndman & McVannel
« on: Sunday 12 January 20 18:12 GMT (UK)  »
Peter Hyndman born 25 04 1813, a twin to Archibald. Parents Donald Hyndman and Christain McCallum.

Family search has Peter Hyndman , Saddell Parish married Jean McVannel, Kilcalmonell Parish in 1842 at Whitehouse, Skipness/Saddell Parish. They both died in Erin , Wellington Co, Ontario, Canada. Marriages in 1842 and Death Certificates in Canada do not list parents.

How do I verify Donald and  Christain Hyndman 's Peter born 25 04 1813 married Jean as it was always thought that the twins Peter and Archibald died.

2nd Archibald Hyndman born 02 03 1815.

Thanks, Dooker

« on: Friday 23 December 16 02:04 GMT (UK)  »
Difficulty with Malcolm McMillan who married  Mary MacArthur.  She was born 1818  in Kilarrow, Islay.

Malcolm born 1811/1815/or 1816, in Saddell/Skipness Parish. Parents  Iver,later named Edward MacMillan and Effy Hyndman.  LDS listings have 2 males born to Iver and not named.

Census have them both, Malcolm and Mary born in Kilarrow and he with birth date 1816, 1818, and 1819.

If this is someones family I have lots of details from Census to share.
