Address is Fox,Elk, Pennsylvania...
I have access to Ancestry Uk, is there any other way of finding what's on this census page apart from joining the US Ancestry..??

I'm also looking for

Lancashire / Where do I find?
« on: Wednesday 10 October 07 11:25 BST (UK)  »

I have 2 deaths of a Nicholas Thomas Harry .... both registered in Bury, Lancashire
One in 1894 and the other in 1895....The 1894 was the first husband of my grt gran and the second possibly the son they had that died .....

Where do I look to see if they were buried....Although both registered in Bury....I think they probably died in Radcliffe as this is where they lived most of their lives...

Bridget died in 1933 and is buried in Radcliffe Cemetery along with her second husband and his brother....but these are the only 3 in the grave....

Where do I find out whose buried in Cemeteries....without going and looking.

England / SHARD baptisms Help
« on: Monday 24 September 07 09:24 BST (UK)  »


I have John Shard born abt 1781....according to the 1841 census, birth not in Lancashire, but I suppose it could be wrong....
He married Mary Unknown, where...not sure, she is stated as being born in lancashire.....
They had children from abt 1802, so I suppose they married before this...
Also their first son Robert 1802 ish, states born in Lancashire, but again not exactly sure...i have birth details for all his siblings but not his....his siblings were born in Lancashire...

Is there anyone who can look these up for me...

John 1781 birth details & marriage

Robert birth details...I already have his marriage..

Many thanks for looking...

Argyllshire / McCallum & Darroch/Darrock
« on: Wednesday 05 September 07 12:01 BST (UK)  »
 ???  ???

I have a James Darroch married to Ann/Agnes McKay/Mackay (spelt a combinaton of both)

On the census records they are living in Southend Argyllshire.....until today I assumed James was born in Scotland, but after studying the records more it states birth place Ireland......I have found a marriage on the scotland peoples site I think for them in 1806 at Southend Argyllshire....his name is spelt as Darrack and her first name is down as Naney.....

Is there any way I can find out where he actually came from?

Would it tell me on the marriage record?

If there are any others looking for this surname, please get intouch...


Ireland / James Darroch born.... Ireland
« on: Wednesday 05 September 07 10:21 BST (UK)  »

hi I have always thought that James Darroch was born in Scotland, but I now think he may have been born in Ireland....haven't a clue as to where....on the Scotland census for 1841 his birth date is 1791, but on the 1851 & 1861 it's down as 1783/4 what a difference, these both seem to be him as his daughter Martha is with him, then when he died she moved to Lancashire to her sisters...

He married Ann/Agnes McKay/Mackay, her name have been spelt either combination on the birth records of her children,  3 of which were born in Southend Argyllshire..

I have just found a marriage for a James Darrach & Naney McKay in Southend Argyllshire in 1806, now this could be him as it's the same area the children were born

Is there anywhere I can try and find more about James?
I can't find a marriage in Scotland for him either
