I am searching information of Elizabeth Neilson born Hillhead 1864-1927 and her family: mother Mary nee Gray 1836-1902 father Archibald Neilson 1832-1910 and husband John Richmond 1852-1936. All were born in Govan or Cadder and all migrated to New Zealand or Australia.At the time of Elizabeths birth her father was working as a pithead man. Maybe it was the Kelvinside colliery that being the closest to Hillhead at that time - I think. Does anyone know how/if I can confirm this? Are there records of the employees of collieries from that time? I have quite a bit on their lives in New Zealand and Australia if anyone is interested.

James Graham married Mary Lauther Wilson b. 1808 Old Kilpatrick in Glasgow about 1842 and emigrated to Quebec with Marys surviving children Robert and Mary Wilson around 1843. I have traced the Lauthers to Stirlingshire but have no leads on the parentage and origin of James Graham. In Quebec he was a logger and millwright/mill owner but he was also literate and tutored an orphan in his home and transacted legal business for his neighbors.

I have reason to believe that John Hamilton DOB unknown and Mary Tregelles Hamilton 1790 may be my 3rd ggrandparents. My 2d grandfather Henry is said to have been born in Scotland in 1828 which matches the DOB of John and Marys son Henry. If so they would have migrated from Falkirk to Co Clare Ireland sometime after the birth of their daughter Mary Tregelles Hamilton in 1831 and before 1845 when my 3rd ggrandfather John is known to have lived in the area of Bodyke Clare.

Looking for descendents of John Dick widower of Annie Skae Dick who in 1891 moved from 60 Baker Street Stirling to Glasgow @ 37 Church Place with 4 Catherine John Alexaner & William of his 5 children and married Elizabeth Miller. The 5th child Harriet Jessie and my granmother age 12 was placed in service. In the 1901 Scottish Census Jessie Dick age 23 appears as a domestic servant in Lanark. She emigrated to Vancouver British Columbia sometime before 1910. More recent research suggests that in 1917 John Dick & Son had a construction company in Glasgow. A search for decendants of John senior and Eizabeth Miller and sons William John appear to be useful as Jessie Alexander and possibly Catherine left Scotland. Anyone interested? Suggestions?

I am trying to find out what happened to my great great grandfather William Galletly who was living in Barony parish Glasgow at the time of the 1851 census. He was born in Perth in 1824 married Jane Dalder in St Johns Free Church Barony in 1848 and died sometime between 1851 and 1865 when his wife Jane re-married. However I can find no official record of his death in the Statutory registers after 1855 and I understand that the Barony parish death records for 1836 to 1854 are missing. I am therefore seeking any alternative sources for this information such as gravestone inscriptions. His last known address was at 27 Campbell Street now East Campbell Street. That being the case can anyone tell me which cemetery he would most likely be buried in and whether the gravestones for that cemetery have yet been transcribed? Better still can anyone provide any information regarding the death or burial of the above William Galletly between 1851 and 1865?

I am looking for information on George Ross. Originally from Old Deer Aberdeen he was a gamekeeper on the Aden estate. He migrated to Ireland about 1842/3 with Lady Mary Balfour as part of her entourage when she moved across to marry Lord Henry Herbert of Muckross Killarney. He lived there until his death.Family history has it that he was on Islay presumably as a gamekeeper. He is on the 1841 census in Aberdeen but I want to try and trace him on Islay as he had a son John Ross who I cannot determine was born in Scotland or Ireland. I believe that the Mitchell Library has Islay Estate papers but wondered if there was anything online to view. Many thanks.

My 3x great grandfather, John McIntyre (1783-1835), was a gardener in Barony. His wife was Agnes Erskine (1785- 1854). There were several McIntyre families who were gardeners and whose sons were John William and Alexander. They seem to have all been related but it is difficult sorting out which family an individual belongs to and therefore which line to trace back. I'd love to hear from anyone else researching McIntyre gardeners in Glasgow.
