Isabel Watson?
« on: Sunday 23 February 14 15:09 GMT (UK) »
My G-G-G-Grandfather James Gove married Isabel/Isobel/Isabella (Various spellings I've found), Watson on 29th June 1799 in Benholm. I've found that James & his twin Brother John were babtised on 5th May 1776 also in Benholm.

I'm now trying to find out about Isabel. From Scotlands People I've found a possible Isabel Watson, b 27/8/1766 to Andrew Watson &  Elspit Falconer in Bervie.

I'm wondering if I've got the right Isabel, and how could I check?

Any Ideas??


(By concidence, I was also married on 29th June, and my name is James! How spooky is that?)

Hi James,
Have you tried Familysearch.org which is a free site and has been
updated.
My ancestors are the MCBAY from Benholm and MARRIED a CHRISTINA GOVE in Sunderland Co. Durham in 1864  :)

Hi Rowana

There is this submitted ancestry tree on Family Search here https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.2.1/MWJZ-TT3 which might give some clues regarding possible naming order. These children seem to correspond with OPR birth & christening entries. There may be more children that don't show here. This seems to also match what shows here http://www.geni.com/people/James-Gove/6000000002715233969

Hi Mike,
Do you know who Christina Gove's parents were?
I have a Christina in my tree, but she was born in 1853, so it's not her as she would only have been 11.

Hi Monica,
That's the Gove family right enough.
James & Isobel's 6th child Andrew was my G-G-Grandfather.
I have all the information on that file already regarding the Gove line. I'm now trying to see if I can find out any more about Isobel.

Hi Mike,
I'm related to James Gove - Isobel Watson through their 6th child Andrew Gove, b 1810.
Andrew married Mary Ann Strachan on 14 Dec 1836 in Inverbervie.
They had 11 children that I am aware of. The 3rd being another Andrew, my Great-Grandfather.

I'd love to hear what you have on the Gove line. I'll send you a PM with my contact details.

Regards
Jim
