Organ 91st Highlanders Sealkote India
« on: Wednesday 27 June 12 16:18 BST (UK) »
Can anyone help?
My 2x great grandmother was Catherine Organ (she married my 2x great grandfather Robert George Osborne 24.9.1866 in India, he was in the 91st Highlanders, she was a widow and Organ is her surname from her first marriage)

Catherine Organ already had a child, Ada Alice.E.Organ when she married Robert.
I have 2 lots of information regarding Ada's birth from the GRO Regimental Birth Indices:

1. ORGAN ADA E
Place: Sealkote
Date: 1865
Regt: 91st
Vol:97 Page:31

2. ORGAN ADA A.E
Place:Sealcote
Date:1865
Regt:AH & M Corps
Vol 620 page 90

What I need help with is:

1. Who was Mr Organ to whom Catherine was married, and the father of Ada. I assume from the above information that he was a soldier in the 91st Argylshire Highlanders and was in Sealcote when Ada was born?


2. Can anyone suggest where I can check records for him, I'm hoping Organ is an inusual enough surname, as I don't have his first name. I'd like to trace his marriage to Catherine, and his death.

Use one of those references from the GRO Birth Indices to order the birth certificate from the GRO website. That will give you fathers full name and mothers maiden name will a bit of luck.
Name interests: Boulton, Murrell, Lock, Croxton, Skinner, Blewett, Tonkin, Trathen.

Thank you for your reply. If I want to do it the old fashioned way by post, is ordering a regimental birth cert the same asordering a normal one do you know?

hi as neil says use one of the details you have and yes order it the same as normal , just as an aside i,ve looked in pension records just to see how many were named organ and there are 67 records to choose from ,  so your best bet is get the birth cert detail then come back and ask for a lookup .
