You guys are really good. Makes me a real novice at this. Thanks so much for all your help. Ages are obviously not very accurate, especially in the 1991 census and in James marriage record.

I'm happy with the 1881 census data, but could not track him in 1891. My grandfather born in 1880 said he never knew him, but Jemima was living with them. The discrepancy in birth year is also an issue, although these things are often wrong. I won't discount this one entirely, but there were a lot of Customs officials in Wick at the time and I have been going down the wrong line with Master Mariners with identical names on the Cormack side. James Waters does not seem to be an uncommon name.

I'm pretty sure that's not my James Waters. Mine married in 1845 aged 21 and was born 1824. I think he and Jemima (jimmima) Dunbar had 2 daughters, Jemima Dunbar Waters and Isobel(?) I have not traced any other siblings and not sure that Isobel is correct name.
Thanks for all your help though. This is a great site.

Not sure if that's the right one. I have him dieing earlier and his wife Jemima went to live with her daughter. There seems to be another James Waters born in the area in 1822. Will continue checking
Thanks for the help

Thanks for replying. I have tried all that stuff. I am really looking for his parents, exactly where and when he was born. I have him in the Scottish censuses

Hi
I am new to this forum. I have researched quite a bit of my family tree, but have got stuck with tracing James Waters who married Jemima Dunbar in 1845. James was born about 1824 in Caithness, Scotland and had a daughter Jemima Dunbar Waters who married David Cormack.
Any help greatly appreciated.
KC
