Guys, a Heckler was engaged in processing hemp/flax, I think it was combing out the fibres preparatory to spinning.......Skoosh.

I am interested, as  Alexander Forsyth and Elizabeth Graham are part of my tree also.
Did you find them in 1841?, as I have tried for a few years now and have not managed yet.

I dont know if I have spoken to you before or not, but John Forsyth and Mary Bain are also my line.

Hi chel13,

Don't know if we have been in touch or not, but didn't find Alexander & Elizabeth in 1841, had hoped that someone on the chat room may have come across them alive or dead.

Followed the Forsyth line to a marriage in 1921 of Alexander and Elizabeth Kerr Wait (my wife's aunt)

Hi,

Yes I think we have been in touch before, I am still hunting for them too!!

I even followed a Duncan Bain b. 1812 ( Mary sibling) through all the census, only to find it wasnt him ::) I dont know why we cant find these families, I even thought they might have immigrated, but found nothing, ah well.. someday!!!

Hi chel13,

Have a look at www.davghalgh/kilmuirpic4.html

Apparently Kilmuir Wester & Sudie were joined to form Knockbain in the mid 18th century.
Not that has still not done any good.

Hi again,

I have just been through my Forsyth notes again and wonder if you have any siblings for John Forsyth b. Kilmuir Wester.

In 1851 John and Mary are still in Cromarty, Alexander their son is in Johnshaven, living with Roderick Ross, an Uncle, I checked the IGI and a Roderick Ross married a Jean Forsyth 1823 Cromarty, also living with them is Elizabeth Forsyth, Roderick's sister in law, are these two John Forsyth's siblings? or have I got it wrong?
Do you have any more on them?

I also have no death for Elizabeth Forsyth, John and Mary Bains daughter, cant seem to find it, did you ever manage?
