Yes, from what was written early doors, providing there's a trail, I think so?

Just trying to track all the children of Jacobinas and James to tidy away a few loose ends with my Lyall family.

This is where one of Gavin's siblings must be the ancestor?

You are probably right Annie. I overlooked that vital sentence.  ;)

Hopefully we shall soon find out more details of who Suzy is descended from. That will impact how much effort needs to be given to the search and how many SP credits used to confirm relationships.

Suzy,

It may be worth getting in contact with the tree owner who had the 'specific' death date to confirm his source, DC/MI or other?

Knowing the source is a great help & if it's a DC you could trade info. by sharing certs  ???

I note you have been online in the last couple of days Suzy though you have not returned to this thread.

Have any of these findings been of help to you?

I tend to get a bit invested in people I have got to know through researching them and digging around in their past lives, so am curious to know if Annie is right - are you descended from one of Gavin's siblings rather than Gavin himself?

Do you need any more help with this family or is this enough for you to be going on with?

Likewise Ruskie,

We do get involved & it's always good to have feedback on our findings especially when many hrs are spent researching, not knowing whether it's right/wrong/not proven.

An acknowledgement of our detailed work is always welcome & I'm sure none of us would be offended if our research findings were wrong as it's all part of the enjoyment of our hobby regardless but it would be good to know which way it went & if we can be of further help or have to retire  :-\  ;D

I think Annie might be correct with the death of Gavin in Caithness. 

Seeing a Gavin in Edinburgh during one of the census results made me wonder if that was him or not?  You never know where people turn up.

Going by marriage details in Edinburgh it isn't his parents recorded, so not him.

Gavin would be a nephew to my ggg grandmother.  His father James Mowat was indeed born in Freswick abt 1814. 

My Mowat family intertwine so many times, it drives me crazy.  I would have around 400 Mowat family members. Some marrying more Mowat's :o

Still no idea why I didn't receive update posts, unless it was my son updating this computer and did something...who knows ;)

Thanks for the help
