I'm checking my names now :)

Fife / Andrew Proudfoot Clark, Kirkaldy, Fife d 1989 (obit/photo wanted)
« on: Sunday 12 April 15 05:21 BST (UK)  »
Now this is kind of annoying. For years my family thought we had no Clark relatives.

I just got this mans details today his father was David Clark and his mother Annie Ireland.

Andrew Proudfoot Clark was born 1907 in Dysart died 1989
and the same with his sister.
Jessie Dougall Gray Clark was born 1904 in Dysart died 1982

The thing is they have the same parents as my David Clark born 1894. There would be a 10 year gap between David and Jessie. How does that even happen?

The parents were David Clark and Annie Ireland married at Kingskettle in 1893

Could this explain why gr.grandad David Clark born 1894 in Edinburgh never mentioned them?
I can't seem to get this mans birthcert of sp! We know his parents from death cert and we know they lived in Dysart, next door to his wife, Isabella Lister.

Andrew Proudfoot Clark and his wife Alison Baird Taylor (or Gilchrist) are both deceased now. It would have been nice to know of them earlier. And I'd love to see a photograph.

Jessie Clark didn't marry, I think.

One of my oldest photographs, I'm wondering if it could please be improved? It seems to be fading?

Fife / David Clark, Stonemason Journeyman, Kettlehill, Fife (Brickwall)

How would I go about busting this brick wall?
David Clark, Stonemason Journeyman in Kettlehill, Fife

His son was David Clark  b. 27 Jan 1872,  Kettlehill, Fife

The mother of the child was Helen Wilkinson b.  23 Jul 1845, Kettle, Fife

I would really like the David Clark, Stonemason Journeyman's birthdate/parents.

Was there a Stonemasons guild in Scotland? As I understand things a journeyman is not yet a master of his trade?

So many David Clarks in the 1871/1881 census how would I narrow it down?

New Zealand Completed Requests / Harry Manuel Lemon, Pakaraka - parents names?
« on: Saturday 28 March 15 09:55 GMT (UK)  »
I am a bit puzzled by this WW1 soldier - relationship status status pre 13 November 1915, single (Cenotaph). I have found his marriage to Nita Helena Bowyer in 1918 NZBDM. No issue (my ancestress)

Father A.H.Lemon of Pakaraka, Bay of Islands, New Zealand.

I can't open this (hmpft!)

Quite keen to know A.H.Lemons whole name and where he came from.

New Zealand Completed Requests / 700 unmarked graves, Mission Ground Cemetery
« on: Friday 13 February 15 20:54 GMT (UK)  »

A leafy, green inner-city park could be home to up to 700 graves of some of the pioneers, vagrants, waifs and strays of early Whangarei.

Local researcher Joan Leversedge has been working with Whangarei District Council staff to piece together the story - and faces - behind the Mission Ground Cemetery in Selwyn Ave, which was a "public burial ground" some time from 1852 to 1941.

While initial research found 83 names of people buried there - which have been engraved on a cairn at the site - Ms Leversedge is appealing for information about another 57 names, and believes there could be up to 700 people buried on the 0.3-hectare site.

New Zealand Completed Requests / John Boyle Hamilton, which ship?
« on: Sunday 18 January 15 06:30 GMT (UK)  »
Hello, could anyone please tell me any details of him coming to New Zealand. I guess he would be listed as James Hamilton, would that make him hard to find on shipping lists?

John Boyle Hamilton
born 1850, Ballywalter, County Down?
m. Donkin, Emma on the 02 Jul 1874, Lambton Quay, Wellington

Troublesome ancestor because of his common name, Emma Donkin, so much easier, thankyou Whiteout7


Pte James Rowan will be buried as a designated unknown soldier on 16 April at the Prowse Point Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery, Belgium

A man believed to be from County Longford, who died during World War One, will be buried as an unknown soldier after attempts to trace his Irish relatives failed

((Wow, this is a shame - any one researching Rowan, missing a soldier? They are hoping for a DNA match so they can engrave his headstone with his name))
