Hi

Just a comment about the Keltons  :) 

There was a thread about this about 18 months ago (I'll go check and put up the link here). I think the one that is referred to here is Kelton Kirkcudbrightshire and the address that Monica has listed is in Castle Douglas (part of Kelton parish)

Some of my relatives had property on King Street in the 1840s  :)

Ok,,,I found Williams DC, and it was the one in Troqueer.  I guess I just need to learn how to use SP.  Have wasted I don't know how many credits.  I still cant find the one for Jane Kerr though.  No matter how I search I am not finding her death in Nov 1881.  Any suggestions?

Hi  :)

There is a death reg on SP in 1881 for Jane McGowan, other name Kerr, aged 75, in Dalton, Dumfries

Yesterday I was involved in doing  lookups on another thread. It might be related to your Kerrs:

Hope this helps.

I think the Janet you are referring to is our Janet Kerr b 1805 Dalton. Her parents are George Kerr and Mary Dickson. I have been trying to find the connection to William Mcgowan but so far no luck! Janet had as far as we know 5 siblings: Robert Henderson Kerr b 1801 Whitecroft, Dalton, Francis Henderson Kerr b 1809 Pyhills, Annie b 1814, Anna b 1807 and possibly David?b 1808( a father George Kerr is mentioned on his birth cert but no mother) and Mary b 1811

Hi akc  :)

Are you also part of the csc family:

It seems that there are quite a few people looking for the same family at the moment.

From the death cert. , the Jane Kerr, wife of William McGowan, was the daughter of James Kerr, a weaver, and Janet, m.s. Nielson.

So not the same Jane/Janet that AKC refers to

I see that Jane/Janet is down as being b. Torthowald on the 1851 that Monica found.

There is an interesting baptism entry on SP that might be her given the variations in the spelling of the surname:

3 April 1806 Torthowald -  Janet d/o James Kirkir, workman near Durm/Dourn ?  Baptised 'next thursday apr 3rd by Mr Dickson'


Quite a few children showing to James Kerr and Janet Nielson on the IGI

Thanks Gadget!  I will check the IGI and see what they have.  I did another search for the death record of Janet Kerr, and I found it finally.  Seems if you do a specialized search instead of just the "all discticts" search, more shows up.  Helps a lot to know where to look.

Thanks for your help

If anyone wants to see a pic of Agnes (McGowan) Tweedie, I posted one for fixing on the boards.  They have done a wonderful job with it.  Here is the link:
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,351709.0.html

I have several other pics from that time frame too.  I will be posting them on the boards so if someone else is researching these people, they can have a copy of it.

Thankyou all for your help.  Words cannot express the gratitude I feel.
