Presume you mean William and James Forbes ??

Sorry, just a notice to creditors by daughter Ethel M Urquhart  :-\   Always nice to have another record if you haven't already got it.

You sent me a PM  earlier this year about obits for him and his brothers. I sent info on one brother in LA, but you never replied back so I didn't send what I found for Alexander. Here it is now.

Probably something you have already checked  ???

Was there a will for Agnes Forbes who passed in 1913 or for William Taylor Forbes who passed in 1933 ?

William Taylor Forbes  - 91 years -  1933 - 181/ 9 - Cluny (Aberdeen)

Agnes Forbes - 69 years - 1913 - 181/ 9 - Cluny (Aberdeen)
