RE: [Peterhead] Re: George Thomson Duncan/ Kinghorn/ Duncan
- Ross,My guess now would be that George Thomson DUNCAN probably died at a young age, but that is just an assumption based on what is known and we all know that in this hobby, we should never make assumptions;-)))The 1901 Census index shows that Isabella & Alexander WATSON also had a daughter Mary Jane bc1896 as noted in my previous post.I've seen the term "inmate" used before and it seemed to only reference that the person lived at the same address as the deceased - took me by surprise too the first time I saw it.I've also had an instance or two where the middle name had absolutely nothing to do with the direct lineage - just someone they thought well of.Please post should the puzzle get solved.BarbaraOntario, Canada
I George Thomson Duncan went to Detroit,he might have come through
Canada through the Detroit Boarder Crossings to enter the USA.
Ancestry.com has the Detroit Boarder Crossings listed. I also found
other relatives through this information.
Then on the other hand you might want to try PA passenger manifest also. I found relatives that came that route as well.
I hope this is some help to you..
