Who were John's parents? If you have a copy of his birth or marriage certificate you must know that. If you don't, your first move should be to get a copy of his marriage certificate from www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk.

I have Alexander Tosh (1835-1918), parents David Tosh and Mary Whamond, who married my relative Mary Elmslie Scott in 1868. David was born in Tannadice around 1795. I have not researched him further as he isn't related to me.

Also Ann Tosh (1779-8 December 1858), daughter of David Tosh and Sarah Milne, who married my relative John Stewart in Lethnot and Navar in 1808. Again, I haven't researched her father David Tosh, as he is not related to me.

Also Robert Campbell Tosh, whose illegitimate daughter by Elizabeth Campbell was born in St Vigeans in 1870.

I see that George Tosh and Isabella Addison were married in Marykirk in 1861. The marriage certificate will tell you the names of both sets of parents including their mothers' maiden surnames.

They had at least six of a family
John, 2 June 1862, Lethnot and Navar
Margery Stewart, 8 February 1864, Oathlaw
Betsy Kennedy, 19 October 1865, Menmuir
Christina, 27 November 1867, Forfar
George, 7 March 1870, Inverarity and Meathie
Mary Ann, 26 May 1872, Murroes

In the 1871 census they were in the parish of Inverarity (except Mary Ann of course). The original of this census, also on Scotland's People, will tell you where George was born.

Barring creative spellings of the surname, there don't seem to be any Toshes in any census in Lethnot and Navar.
