Hi Rosie

I think I'm looking at the correct cert and I don't know how you think he was dead bhy 1858. Here's a snip of James's birth record. George was alive and the informant.

Looks as if George died between April 1858 and  1861 census. I'll have another look with a later death date.

If you put in his names, 1859 and Troqueer, it will come up.

The best way of searching  on SP is to give as little iinfo as possible.  I found him by using wild cards in the surname and no first name and no age, just 1858-1861 and Kirkcudbrightshire and he popped up in Troqueer.

I've just read your e-mail.  I see your confusion as the handwriting is not of the best.  It would say deceased in the 'Father' column. You were reading the 'Informant' column - an informant would never be deceased.
