Help with Susan Baird's death cert COMPLETE
« on: Saturday 05 December 09 17:55 GMT (UK) »
The attached is part of the death cert of Susan Baird, my G-G-G Grandmother.

I THINK[/i] it says -

1st Box
Baird Susan {??} {??} Widow of John Baird {??}

2nd Box
1857 April twenty?? {twentyfourth, perhaps?} {??} 41{possibly} Castle Street Montrose

3rd box
F

4th box
82 years {possibly}

5th box
William Taylor seaman  {possibly} deceased
Jane {or is it Janet?} Taylor maiden name Leighton deceased

Can anyone fill in the blanks, and do you agree with what I've got so far.

All help gratefully received

Jim

I think Susan may have been a "Gear Greaser" and her husband, John a carpenter.  I think her mother was called Janet, but otherwise, I agree with your deductions.

Could it say "Green Grocer"do you think, otherwise  I agree with what has already been deduced .Viktoria.

The 1851 census has her as a green grocer living at 104 Castle Street, born in Montrose c. 1783. A submitted IGI entry has what is showing above, parents William Taylor and Janet Leighton and her death date (probably taken from her death cert).

Jim, this is a very old post on another forum following your line down to (William) Alexander Dunn

Thanks everyone. 

Green Grocer make sense right enough as I have John as a green grocer, but it never occured to me that it would be Susan's occupation as well. I agree with alpinecottage that carpenter is what John is shown as.

Monica - That IS[/i] an old thread right enough, but it gives me some more clues. I'm still a bit unsure about the (William) Alexander Dunn though. Looks like some more digging through OPR's!

Thanks again
Jim
