Sinclair John & mother Catherine
« on: Monday 01 September 14 13:08 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to find any  information about John Sinclair and His mother Catherine
I can't find  the death of John Sinclair He was born 24th May 1874 in Keig Scotland  his mum was Catherine Sinclair b 6 May 1853 I've run into a dead end
I don't know anything about his mother apart from her birth born Aberdeenshire, Scotland
I found 2 Catherine's in the 1881 census but they don't seem to fit
what can or where can I look next??

Only censuses I can find for Catharine are 1861 Crofts of Tulloch Aberdeenshire
John Sinclair 42 saw miller Fyvie
Amelia 32 chapel of Georie
John 10
Catharine 7
Amelia 4
George 2
David 8 mths.
She's left home by 1871 and is at Upper Balfour Tullynessle and Forbes as Kathrine Sinclair 16 born Keig general servant.Her brother George age 12 ag lab  is also there for a William (age 45 born Tullynessle )and his mother Isabella Reid(age 75) farmer.
Going by that I'd go for her being at Waterside Farm in 1881 at Tullynessle again as a servant,age 27 from Oyne.
No sign of John but I assume Catherine would have married by 1891.

Hello everyone
First  I think?? [not confirmed yet]   John and Amelia were Catherine's parents   not John's parents tho we think John was illegitimate Catherine defiant was his mother I had John and Amelia  names scribbled down with lots of ???? marks
Maureen were is it listed I have not seen that [I don't have access to Ancestry]
John was alive in 1891 He was at a place called Roadside farm so I know he was alive then 
after that I lose him and cant find his mother
