looking for a death/or burial record
« on: Sunday 10 February 19 18:28 GMT (UK) »
I have been searching for weeks for a death/and or burial for Helen Rankin/or Rankine wife of William Dunlop who died 1877 he remarried 1858 to Mary Wallace, I can't find his burial either or that of his second wife Mary Wallace who died 1900 at Sorn - William was a Gamekeeper at Sorn Castle, so I presumed they all would be buried at Sorn Churchyard - hope someone can help

There is a death record in Scotland's People for a Helen Dunlop in 1856 age 49 in the Dreghorn district of Ayr.  Could this be your Helen?

You don't give her birth year.

There is also a death record for William in 1877 age 76 in the Sorn district of Ayr.

Yes I have William Dunlop's death cert of 1877 at Sorn Castle,  but was he buried with his first wife or second wife and where are they all buried - Helen Rankin: all I have for her is birth abt 1809/1811 Dundonald, at that Time Irvine/Troon came under the Parish of Dundonald. Hellen as the spelling was 1841 census at Kiln Knowe cottage Sorn.  1851 Helen is still alive and still living at Sorn Cottage, you wouldn't think it would be hard to find a death or burial within a short space of time between 1851-1858

The Helen Dunlop referred to in Dreghorn is a different Dunlop family, I had already checked this out, thank you.
