red mail FINDLAY, MARY ANN SMITH (Dec 09) Update
I have an update to Mary Ann Smith Findlay, I have since found out that she married John Black, a Baker by trade, and they married on 2 January, 1883 at St, Mary's Episcopal Church, Montrose. Mary Ann & John had a daughter Mary Jane Black born in Montrose on 25th September, 1883 at 30 India Lane. They later moved to Islington, London, England. (See all information on Surname BLACK, John and Mary Ann, Islington, London, England). Any further information or descendants of that Family would be greatly appreciated. I understand their was another child (maybe born in Islington?) but I am unable to find names on the Census of England & Wales 1911 as it states 2 children born & 2 children living and next Census is years away. Thank you. FINDLAY, MARY ANN SMITH (Dec 09) I am looking for information/descendants of Mary Ann Smith Findlay, my Great Grandfather James Alexander Findlay's eldest sister. Mary Ann Smith Findlay was born in Forfar on 31 Aug. 1859. Father Alexander Findlay, Mother Mary Ann (nee Milne). Alexander Findlay was in the British Army and moved around U.K. a lot because of this, eventually the family moved back to Montrose to live. Therefore, some children were born in England as well as Montrose. Some brothers moved to Australia and others to U.S.A. to live permanently.

Agnete married James Rennie. Robert Williamson (the one born in 1641) immigrated to a place nearby the norwegian town Kristiansund after his wife died. He died in Norway in 1716.
