Janet Cree, born in Bo'ness in Feb 1858
Janet CREE was born 8 February 1858, in Bo'ness, the fifth known child of Archibald and Mary (McMinn) Cree. However, she is not listed in the 1861 census, where the Crees are listed as the Cora family. I suspect she has died, but can find no record of her death in ScotlandsPeople. Can anyone suggest other places to seek a death record, please? Thanks

red mail famlies in Bo'ness
I am interested in the Hendersons and Wallaces from Bo'ness. John Henderson, 1829-1902 son of John Henderson ( a seaman) and Margaret Smith. I have mother and son ( age 12) on the 1841 census and staying in Bo'ness until his death. He married Ann Foot. I also have generations til present time. The Wallaces married the Hendersons Mary Wallace ( 1853-1913) to John Henderson the third in 1872. The earliest Wallace I have is James Wallace and Agnes or Annie Stevenson, married 1822 and living in Glasgow. James and Mary moved to Bo'ness after their marriage. I have Agnes and children starting in the 1841 census. The two families lived mainly on south and North Street and the main occupation was potter. Does anyone know these families? Thank you. Donna
