Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Maiden name of groom's mother?
« on: Friday 06 January 17 09:15 GMT (UK)  »
Me again!  I wish they'd write more clearly.  I have all of this marriage except for the maiden name of the groom's mother.  Could it be JOHNS?  (Except there's a dot there that suggests there's an i in there somewhere).

Thanks for any help!

Sorry people you've lost me (I'm a bit slow today).  Are you suggesting these families are directly linked to Margaret McKAIG, or just that McKAIG however spelt is a common name in this area?

And the Eliza Jane birth record suggests Margaret and James were married by 1878 at least.  I wonder what he was doing in the USA, not delivering milk I'd guess.  And he must have come back in time to father Daniel in 1880.

Thanks for the clarifiction about the Island (maybe a swampy area years ago?).  I'll go with 24th as well for the birth.

Unfortunately I can't seem to find a marriage for Daniel's parents anywhere in the general area.  There's a marriage in 1880 (which seems a bit late in any case) for a Margaret Jane McKAIG in Ballymoney, but I can't find a matching entry for James McALLISTER.

Many thanks to both of you.  It looks like a bit of a lottery as to the spelling of McCAIG.  That's three versions I've seen so far (understandable when literacy wasn't as widespread as today).

I take it also that Carnmoon isn't in fact an island? And what is the date of the birth-it looks like 24th of May to me, but the family thinks it was 27th.

Antrim / Birth of Daniel McAllister on Carnmoon Island

Hi everyone

I'm trying to find confirmation of a birth of Daniel McAllister.  Family lore has him born on Carnmoon Island on 27 May 1880.  His parents according to certificate of Daniel's 1911 marriage in Scotland were James McAllister and Margaret McCAIG?(her name difficult to read).

Any assistance appreciated.

Hi people, and Happy New Year to everyone.

I'm able to make out all the details on this MC, except for the occupation of the late bride's father, and her late mother's maiden name.  Any suggestions?

Thanks Spendlove.

This might explain why we couldn't find burials for either of them at Brampton.  From the DC James seems to have been the one reporting Elizabeth's death in Dec 1849, but I can't find him in the 1851 Census.  Is there by chance a burial for him at Whittington?
