Wigtownshire / Sarah Gibson and Agnew Skimming
« on: Monday 26 October 15 19:11 GMT (UK)  »
According to what I've found so far, they had 2 children out of wedlock (Agnew was married at the time) but they ultimately married in 1929 after the first wife died. I'm trying to prove their illegitimate children were Hugh and William Gibson born 1909 and 1913 resp. William was given up for adoption but I think Sarah kept Hugh. Can anyone shed any light?

Thanks in advance.

My great grandfather James Burnet Gibb (20 Mar 1857 Aberdeen - 12 Mar 1929 Ontario) married Mary Ann Morgan (5 Apr 1852 Brechin - 28 Oct 1940 Ontario) on 10 Jan 1877 in Brechin. I cannot find evidence of that marriage. I 'm looking for it specifically so I can find Mary Ann's lineage. Can anyone help?

Hello to everyone who has tried to help.I tried to send individual thanks but (being somewhat of a dinosaur) can't figure out how to do that, so this will have to suffice for now. I have found the marriage licence and that helps, now I will go after birth certs and yes I do have a tree going in Ancestry but his one branch has caused much confusion.

By the way, does anyone know if there is such a thing an an emigration file where I might find a list of Scottish folks leaving for the "new world"? My wife was brought to Canada by her Mom as a toddler in 1953 and i need info on where they landed and when for her old age pension. So far, nothing has worked from this end.

Thanks in advance for any and all help or advice.

Regards,  Terry

She was my father's mother, born 1896 in the Montrose area (I think) married to Charles M Gibb around 1918 and emigrated to Canada. There is much confusion about who per parents and grandparents are. Can anyone help?
