Hi all. I 'm tracing my family tree and have discovered that my great-grandfather, John Mcleod Marshall (born 16th March 1891, 23 Quality Street?!, Kirkcaldy), and his family came from Kirkcaldy. He had a brother George Albert Smith and a sister, Margaret (she married a John Archibald Reid in 1907). John married my great-grandmother in June 1914, on Anglesey, north Wales. They had 5 children and then he disappeared, believed to have gone to the US! His father was called Colin Taylor Marshall and was married first to Margaret McLeod (she died 18th October 1895) and then to Elizabeth Corbe Mcmillan. Last known address as 20 Links Street, irkcaldy. Colin died in October 1900 aged 43 of pneumonia. Colin's parent were called David Marshall and Margaret Taylor. They has 6 children in total. If there are any relatives still in Kirkcaldy/Burntisland area, please, please get in touch. I'd love to know more about you.

Hi Tracey,



Thank you for dropping into see us at the Kikrcaldy Book, you are most welcome, and hope you will be a regular visitor. Strange how small the world can be, my mother lived in Quality Street in Dysart, and has a cousin by the name on Jeanie Marshall. My mother is nearly 87 years old and does not remember all the names of the people who lived near her, but as I have not had time to sit down and talk to her properly yet, she may remember once she has had time to think. If she can remember any names etc. I will certainly pass then on to you. In the mean time you could try Church records and the births and deaths registrar office. I do hope you will be succesful with your search, it can be very rewarding. Looking forward to hearing how you get on, drop in soon for another cuppa and a chat.

Cheers,

Hi Annie

Thanks for that. I've had more luck in tracing my scottish side of the family tree than I have with my welsh side!! All thanks to the Scotlandspeople website - it's fantastic! If your mother can be of some help I would be extremely grateful - I'm sure she must know some snippets of life in the area. I'd love to know more about Kirkcaldy and Burntisland. I was in Aberdeen last month and passed through on the train and couldn't help but think "my roots are here". I really hope to find some relatives and get together with them so I can find out more.

Again, many thanks.

Tracey

Ok - an update on this. I have discovered that my great-great grandfather - Colin Taylor Marshall, died in October 1900. As I have not been able to trace any of his children in the 1901 Scottish census, I'm #OOPS#uming that they would have been in an orphanage in the area? My great-grandfather, John McLeod Marshall would have only been 9 years old when his father died and 10 at the time of the 1901 census.

I would like to know if there are records available online regarding childrens homes in Scotland and where would I start looking. Somewhere, somehow, my great-grandfather ended up on Anglesey, north Wales and I'd like to trace how.

Many thanks.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Hi Tracy,
My mother says that her mothers sister married a gentleman by the name of Marshall, he disappered and left grans sister with one child a girl, my mothers cousin by the name of Jeanie Marshall, when her mother died Jeanie went to stay with another of grans sisters who also only had one girl, whose name was Jeanie as well. This all happened when she was very young and she does not remember too much else, but rest #OOPS#ured if she does I will let you know. If there is anything else I can help you with let me know,

Hi Annie

That is so very interesting!! I wonder if it's a relation? My ggrandfather disappeared on my ggrandmother too - must run in the family!!

Another thing I'd like to ask as well is that as my gggrandfather died in 1900, his youngest son (my ggranddad) was only 9 years old. Where would he have gone? Would there have been an orphanage of some sorts in the area? His daughter (my g.aunt) would have been 13. I know she married a John Archibald Ried in March 1907 at 35 Ava Street, Kirkcaldy.

I need to find out how John McLeod Marshall made his way to Anglesey in north Wales.

Many thanks for your help.
Tracey
