Bee,

You might have to send Resthaven an email and request their plot numbers if you find someone to take photos.  It has never been transcribed.

Canada / Re: The Forway Surname
« on: Wednesday 28 July 21 10:37 BST (UK)  »
Canada 411 has none in all of Canada.  https://www.canada411.ca/search/si/2/Forway/Canada one being used as a given name.  However fewer people have land lines these days so not everyone is listed.

1921 Census has none as well or in any voter's list.

Only one birth on record in Quebec in 1897 a Martine Ruby Forway.
2 Emigration entries and 8 mentions in Newspaper 
Most recent is the 1960's; on in Manitoba the other Alberta.  This is from Ancestry so no guarantee as to its accuracy. 

For what its worth Ancestry has total records of Forway as follows...

North America 115 (majority U.S.)
UK 68
Australia 11

Renfrewshire / Re: Watson - death at Eaglesham 1855
« on: Sunday 25 July 21 13:00 BST (UK)  »
A Catherine Currie, daughter in law was the informant so there is a good chance he was deceased even though he is a not noted as such.  The James who died there in 1855 is not him, different spouse.

You know from her death she is buried in the churchyard she might have a stone and he might be on it.  If there is no stone you could try contacting the church they may have a list of burials or council for a search in the burial books.

There is also the Eaglesham Kirk Session Minutes on Scotlands People which you can view for free there might be a mention of him there.

The following is from Scotlands People https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk

A James Morrison Ferguson died 15 Oct 1898 in Falkirk was the son of James Ferguson (deceased) and Margaret Ferguson (maiden name) Morrison.

This James was married to Jeanie Cuttill and his brother Andrew was the informant.  He died of Typhoid. 

Margaret per your date in 13 Nov 1908 was widow of a David Ferguson her parents were Andrew Morrison and Isabella Wright the informant was Andrew McLaren a son-in-law.

May I ask where you got your information from?
