My wife Tammy (Frees) Koos is a granddaughter of Isabella (Dias) Scott.  We're looking for some information about this family as well, specifically the wedding date for William Scott and Isabella.  We have a lot of correspondence written by Isabella to her daughter Phyllis (Scott) Frees who relocated to the United States.

Haydn, I also sent you a PM.

 :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) I am so happy to find all of you. We are living in Windsor Canada area. My mom is who you are looking for she is 76 and still alive today. I have been researching our lineage for 20 years and so happy to find those that are asking the right questions. So yes my grandfather was a butcher I never met him I was born 73. My parents came to Canada with my siblings in the mid 60's. I have a sister and Brother and we all have many children nieces nephews etc.

My Auntie who is 80 we have alot of original documents also to help. I am hoping to come over to Scotland in the next year or so.

We have two Joseph Dias in the family tree.
Joseph Dias the father was born 1856-10-07 and lived until 1930-03-09.  He was a butcher.
Joseph Dias (his son) was born 1888-08-12 and died around 1918.

No record of Horsburgh in our tree.

Alexander and Margaret (Dias) Henderson are our known Canadian ancestors.

The Horsburghs are closer to my side of our Dias ancestry :)
