Death records 1848 - Reid and Update for Robert Reid
- Hi Alison:
Thanks for clarifying the Burial database for me. That is useful to know.
As an update for Sandra:
Interesting, way back got an email from Jennie on this list stating there was a Peter Reid living at Wilson Close, Peterhead and wondering if Robert and Peter might be brothers. 1841 gives birth location as Aberdeenshire and 1851 gives birth location as St Fergus Banff.
The 1841 census trancription I found for Robert Reid also gives his birth as Aberdeenshire. Relooking at the 1851 census record for Jane Reid, Robert's widow shows only some, but not all of of her children in the household. A case of more haste less speed perhaps?
