Probable birth for Jemima can be found on Scotland's People

Adam Jemima Dufton B 1908 Govan RD 646/2 556

1911 census for her can also be found on SP in Govan

Suspect this is 1901 census for family

11 Moss Road Govan

Jeannie Adam Mar 34 b Forgue Aberdeenshire
Jeannie Y D Adam 3 b Govan
Janet R G Adam 2 b Govan ( This is probably Jessie)

Note that father James does not seem to be at home for either the 1901 or 1911 census.


Probable birth for Nancy as Agnes on SP

Bell Agnes 1900 Kirkintilloch RD 496/243

I suspect that she is recorded in Kirkintilloch on the 1901 census as Agnes age 0

George Bell 33 b Ayrshire pitheadman
Mary Bell 33 b Ireland
Siblings Mary, George, Jeannie and John.

Thanks Trish, I will have a look

Thanks William, Agnes Bell is likely the daughter of George Bell and Mary Dorans.
I thought I had either purchased her Birth or made notes when I was at Edinburgh Center in 2016, however checking my notes I don't seem to have done so.
I did for some of her siblings.

1901 Scotland Census.
"BELL George 33 Pit Headman Hurlford, Ayrshire
BELL Mary 33 Wife Ireland
BELL Mary 12 Daughter Harford, Ayrshire
BELL George 9 Son Kirkintilloch, Dumbartonshire
BELL Jeanie 7 Daughter Kirkintilloch, Dumbartonshire
BELL John 2 Kirkintilloch, Dumbartonshire
BELL Agnes 7mo Daughter Kirkintilloch, Dumbartonshire."

Scotlandspeople, 1911 Scotland Census.
"143
BELL George Head 43 Mar Hurlford, Ayrshire Pitheadman
BELL Mary Wife 44 Mar 24 7 6 Kilmarnock, Ayrshire
BELL George Son 19 Kirkintilloch, Dumbartonshire Coal Miner
BELL John Son 12 Kirkintilloch, Dumbartonshire School
BELL Agnes Daughter 10 Kirkintilloch, Dumbartonshire School
BELL Elizabeth Daughter 3 Kirkintilloch, Dumbartonshire."

There also appear to be passenger lists for Jessie Adam. ( Showing in Ellis Island as Jessie Russell Adam). It seems she emigrated earlier in 1923( arrival 7 May). Arrival port relation is named as an aunt, Mrs Annie Miller.
