Hi chel13,

I have no siblings for John, believe his parents were Alexander Forsyth & Elizabeth Graham but found nothing on them.

I don't know who Roderick Ross or Jean Forsyth are so I'm not sure about the Alexander as I didn't find him on the 1851 census.

Elizabeth b. 1834 Cromarty was with her parents in Cromarty in 1851 and she died after 1891 in Johnshaven but never found a death for her.

Siblings to my Alexander are, Roderick 1843, Duncan 1831, John 1836, Elizabeth 1834 & Margaret (Mary), 1839.

Looks like I got it right!
 After a day on Scotlandspeople and plenty of odd spellings, I found Elizabeth Forsyth b. abt 1802, died in Arbroath in 1873, she was indeed the daughter of Alexander Forsyth and Elizabeth Graham, her gt nephew John Riley signed her death cert, so we now know John Forsyth had at least two sisters, as Elizabeth was living in 1851 with Roderick Ross, as a sister in law, Roderick was a widower, his wife was Jean Forsyth, with them was Alexander Forsyth, a nephew, age is a bit out, but this would have been him.

John Forsyth and Mary Bain's daughter Elizabeth Forsyth, died jul 11 1905, at the Poorhouse Stonehaven.
The reason I couldn't find her was she went under the name Betsy.

Hi chel13,

You have been busy, Elizabeth 1834 lived with brother Duncan 1831 until he died 12/3/1900 at Fetterso Poor House, they were in Johnshaven in 1891, so that settles Elizabeth.
Will now have look at this Roderick Ross and the 2 Forsyth ladies.

Thank you.

Hi
I found Roderick Ross,s death, Jan 7 1864 at Johnshaven aged 68, his father was a James Ross, soldier, no mother named.
Roderick was a Chelsea Pensioner.

I wonder if there were any more Forsyth siblings I have been searching but nothing so far.
