I have searched for a daughter of William and Annie's born on 8 July 1883 in Midlothian 
Euphemia  Porteous  no middle names and no death or marriage for her in Britain.


Euphemia Porteous was elected an officer in Scotch ladies of Warren in 1915

Neither William, Alexander or Margaret's obits mention their sister Euphemia. She must have died before 1962?

It appears Euphremia never married and died in 1916. The last name was messed up on the transcription of her death record... "Partrons"

Thank you so much RJ137 that's great that you managed to find Euphemia.

I do appreciate the help I get from yourself and all  "Rooters " who help myself and others find their

ancestors.
