Reply #10  death record attachment, George ROBERTSON, died 1946
issue - Males 41y (William George)   36y (Ralph Ernest)  34y (John Dixon)
        - Females 45y (Olive Clara)   44y (Daisy Alexandra)  40y (Gladys Helen)
                       31y (Hazel Muriel)  30y (Cassy Sarah)     25y (??)

Is Sarah Dickson the 25 year old daughter?

What happened to Mary Love ROBERTSON, b. 1917?

On this same death certificate, George ROBERTSON, 1946....4th column from the right, and what I suspect is details of marriage.......(1) Hamilton....(2)  25.....(3) Helen DIXON.....(4)  64

What doe 64 refer to?  Who is the informant for this death record? Recording children of the deceased...does it ask for living children only......or are deceased children to be recorded also?

Birth 1915, Joseph Dinwoodie ROBERTSON is not likely to be born to George and Helen but I do not see another ROBERTSON George / Helen combination. I include Joseph for interest only.

George ROBERTSON, with mother Elizabeth Rose, and having several daughters, each with two given names, does not name one of them Elizabeth after his mother?

I do have a photograph, it used to hang on my grandfathers wall, he told me it was his grand parents, and when I first started genealogy back years ago when I was 16 I found George and Elizabeth but that's all he wanted to know and didn't want any further, just wanted the names of those hanging on his wall. I will clean it up as it was in storage at my cousins and post a photo of it on here.

My partner and I would love to see a photo! Thank you
