Dumfriesshire / Francis HARKNESS born 1811 GRETNA
« on: Saturday 02 September 17 16:59 BST (UK)  »
Wondered if someone could verify my tree please
I have Francis Harkness born 1811 in Gretna and died 1891 in Middlebie. On his death certificate it states his parents as John Harkness...farmer...and Janet Clarke. Francis was a tailor and lived in Middlebie. The only Francis I can find in 1841 census is with a George and Agnes Harkness in Langholm Dumfriesshire.....George also a tailor
I can't find anything on Francis marriage certificate for Francis...he married Janet Adamson.
Do I have the correct grandparents for Francis or am I jumping to conclusions
Any help would be gratefully received
Many thanks

PS someone else has a Francis Harkness but with different parents and also a tailor

Dumfriesshire / James Hooper/Hopper/Livingston.....HELP
« on: Saturday 19 August 17 17:36 BST (UK)  »
Looking for help please
My 2X gt grandfather was James Hooper or at least that was what I his marriage certificate and it states his name as James Hopper married to Elizabeth Connel parents James Hopper and Jessie Livingstone
Started to look at free census and found James Snr and Jessie both living in Annan both Nursery labourers but both single in 1861 when James was supposedly born....couldn't find James Hopper or Hopper born in Annan but did find James Livingston born illegitimate to Jessie Livingston
Do I assume that they are one and the same
Also have Jessie Livingstone death certificate which states that she was single and the witness was  Edward who was listed as her father on 1861 census
Don't have access to 1871 or 1871 census so can't do any checking
Can anyone solve my problem please
Many thanks

Dumfriesshire / Can anyone help me find my 5x gt grandparents please
« on: Thursday 17 August 17 17:10 BST (UK)  »
I have the death certificate of my 4 x gt grandmother Jean Edgar nee Dickson November 1859 who died in Torthorwald which states her parents as Matthew Dickson and Mary Gass. His occupation seems to be innkeeper and small farmer but the writing is not very good so that is open to interpretation. Jean was married to John Edgar who was a tailor.Would love any info on Jeans parents as can't seem to find anything
Also if there is any info on Johns ( born 1780 in Mouswald ) parents who are Joseph Edgar and Ann Burnet
Many thanks

Does anyone have MIs for John Edgar died 1857 and Jean Dickson died 1859. Would also be interested if there are any other Edgars or Dicksons
Also if anyone has any pics
Many thanks

Ancestry search shows Alexander Copland born 1782-1845 Kirkgunzeon  ( think that is off someone's tree) having parents John Copland and Elizabeth Roan but I can't for the life of me find any record of a birth to those parents..either on Scotlandspeople or Family search..I have found 4 of their other children....Mary being my ancestor born they did register births. A few people have him on their trees but no source.....HELP
Many thanks
