red mail William Ferguson b.1841 occ:Brickbuilder
I'm trying to trace William Ferguson born 27 Jun 1841, Gorbals, married 16 Feb 1871 to Margaret Muir (born 3 July 1845 Govan) and their two sons Robert (born 1872, Govan) and James (born 1873, Govan). Have found no further trace of this family. Also trying to find out what happened to Williams sisters Janet (b. 1827) and Mary (b. 1838) have tracked them as far as 1861 to Govan (Census). I'm a descendent of another sister Elizabeth.
red mail THOMSON
I am searching for the death certificate of my great grandfather, William THOMSON. William was born 23 Oct 1870 in Paisley, Renfrewshire to James THOMSON and Agnes MCCREE. He became a widower in 1907 after the death of his wife Elena in Paisley. He was residing at 5 Harmony Row in Govan, Lanarkshire in 1923. He was a witness at his son's wedding in 1925 at Leeds, Yorkshire. The city directory in 1927 has him still listed at 5 Harmony Row, Govan. I tried ScotlandsPeople but too many Thomson's listed as his mothers maiden name was not recorded. I have reached a brick wall and hoping someone can help me find when and where William Thomson died. Regards, Glenda

One girl died in infancy - I do not know her name or when she was born. The oldest, Hugh, was born 1898. I believe he emigrated to Australia at some stage and welded on the Sydney harbour bridge. Next William, b 1903, then Alexander b 1905, then David b1910. Isabel was born 1913 and married William Gomersall from Bradford in 1937. Last George b1916/7 who had a successful military career and the story is he became city assessor for Glasgow. He died 1965 - possibly a suicide. I believ he married an Italian lady.
