Armed Forces / 5th great grandfather army records help please
« on: Thursday 21 May 20 09:46 BST (UK)  »
I have found 3 records on Anc which I believe belong to my 5th gt grandfather and am hoping somebody can help me understand a bit more about his military career
The first and second ones come under the category of Canada, British Regimental Registers of Service 1756-1900
The first one details are William Sangster age 19 born 1794 Inverikellan ( mix transcription of Inverkeilor) Forfar Attestation date 22 May 1813 for 7 years 1st Foot Soldiers 3rd Battalion

The second one is for William Sangster 1st Foot 1st Battalion 1813-1815

The 3rd is the record of Waterloo medal for William Sangster Rank Private Regiment 3rd Battalion Royal Scots Sub Unit Captain Geo. Marlay (Major's) Company No.6.
Through a family story we were told he did serve at Waterloo so I believe this is him

Would a will when listing the children of the deceased place them in age order oldest to youngest and if one of the children had a different mother would they be listed separately  the deceased possibly married twice   

Lanarkshire / Looking for Susan Spencer nee Ogilvie and her daughter Barbara
« on: Friday 14 December 18 15:37 GMT (UK)  »
Hi I'm having trouble finding the birth of Susan Ogilvie b1865/6 Edinburgh according to the 1911 census
I have her marriage to William in 1897 age 28 parents Stewart Ogilvie and Isabella Johnston both deceased and her death in July 1911 age 46 parents Henry Ogilvie and Mary Johnston both deceased
The death was registered by her husband and I have the correct death as she died in the hospital but usual address is 117 Maitland Street where I found her in the census living next door to her daughter Amelia also the occupations of both her husband and father match the occupations on the marriage

Also living with Susan in 1911 is her daughter Barbara age 8 born Glasgow I can find no other record of Barbara apart from a possible on her fathers death informant B W Desmott ? I have attached the part of the death cert

As a side note Amelia was "adopted" by the Spencers as an infant she married Alexander McNeill in 1902 on this she states the Spencers as her parents as well as her birth mother and has Susan as Spencer formally McFarlane MS Ogilvie and also after Susan's death her husband married Amelia's mother in law Jessie McNeil nee Griffen
