 :) Jen - thanks so much for the quick response and for the additional information.  I have only been at this for a short time, and the assistance of experienced searchers is very much appreciated - what a great group to find.

GR2 - thanks for the suggestion of looking at census records for other pairs and to see if children from earlier marriage living with my Elspet/Alex'r .

Tina Morana - I was excited when I saw your post mentioning a tree - but unfortunately I don't think this is the right group as the children are not the same - mine has three children who lived to adult -Elizabeth 1831, James John 1833 and John 1835. Thanks for taking the time though

Jennywren001 - yes, I do have the information re births, but not all the detail.  What is "freecen 1841" 
Is this a free information page for census 1841 - how do you access this?
Thanks for helping.

Banffshire / ANDERSON, Alex'r m. 1831 Elspet Moggach Botriphnie

Alexander ANDERSON married Elspet Moggach in Botriphnie, Banffshire in 1831 and they had three children. 

In searching for family information on Elspeth Moggach I found that there are 4 marriages for Elspeth Moggach in Botriphnie beginning shortly after 1800 and with children born to all 4 between 1803 and 1835.

Did she marry someone else first?  My Elspet could also have been any one of the other three, but they could not all be one person as there are overlaps in DOB for children. 

Lots of Alexander ANDERSON(s) born about that time.  Does anyone recognize the connection from their family tree?

James Chalmers MILNE m Isabella Fairley b 1859 Scotland, emigrated to Canada with children before 1911. Census records show Isabella MILNE with children James, Helen and Constance in Vancouver BC.  Can't find record of marriage, but he is shown as husband on Isabella's death certificate and father of the bride on Constance's marriage information.

In searches I have found a James Chalmers MILNE who was born in Canada and moved to the U.S. I don't think this is the same person as mine married in Scotland as all children born there. Or is this the same person and did he marry twice and change his DOB? - or a family name given to several children in different generations.

Also, looking for info re William MILNE from previous generation (relationship unknown) and Alex'r MILNE either in same gen as James Chalmers, or previous gen with William - Canada or Scotland

Any help on this would be appreciated.  Thanks

Carole W - thanks for noticing my error - I have corrected names to GARDEN.  Also thanks for the 1851 census info.

Forfarian - thanks for the guidance re searching.  As a newbie, I have mostly been using family info to create the base outline, and then trying to add info.  Clearly there is a point where it is worthwhile to pay for information instead of wandering in the wilderness.  Very much appreciate the help.


Banffshire / GARDEN, Frances m James John Anderson 1860 Botriphnie

My grandmother, Anna Jane ANDERSON b 1881 Keith, is dau of James John ANDERSON and Francess (possibly Frances) GARDEN m 1860 Botriphnie, Banffshire. (from Anna's birth record)  Anna Jane ANDERSON had 3 siblings: Elizabeth (Eliza) b 1860 Botriphnie, Frances Mary b 1868 Keith, and James Alexander b 1878 Hester Chalder.  Anna Jane and James Alexander emigrated to Canada a few years before 1911.

Family memory suggests that Francess had two brothers - Alexander GARDEN (called Sandy) and James GARDEN- no idea when they were born.  Possibly neither was married.

I have not been able to find any information about Frances GARDEN's family and would be glad of any information anyone can provide. 

Alexis :)
