Hi Elspeth

I don't immediately see either of them on the death registers on Scotlands People, although they might have died after 1956 or emigrated, as you say.

They might also have served in WW1, given their ages, have you tried a search on the WW1 medals listings

regards

Might be worth putting a query on the Emigrants to Canada board. There are some very  knowledgeable posters there  :)

I also found a census record in Alberta which also is in 1906
And lastly A James Keddie 1870-1961 and a John Keddie 1883-1922 buried in Highwood Cemetery
in the town of High River Alberta Canada
will now take your advice Gadget  and post on the Canada site
I'm sooo happy. How satisfying.I am grinning like a Cheshire cat !!!

It's been some time since you were on roots chat, I don't know if you still have the same email address. If you get this - did you ever find out about John and James? We are researching the same family. For John I have a death date of 30 Mar 1922 in High River Alberta Canada. He married someone called Alice Jessie I believe, and had at least two children. My understanding was that James was with him, did you ever find any details for him?
Keddie, Hutson - Scottish Borders and Edinburgh
Menzies, Montague - Penicuik and Castle Douglas
McEvoy, Cavanagh - Ireland
