- Thanks! It is them. The strangest thing is I tried the same search and got nothing. It happened to me with a search the other day too.Rachel-------Original Message-------From: pauladixon23Date: 1/28/2013 12:20:30 PMSubject: [Peterhead] Re: Strachan/May family?
I have just searched on Scotlands People using the following:
Male Surname: Strachan (surname variants)
Male Forename: Andrew
Female Surname: May
Female Forename: Sara (not Sarah)
Year range 1862 - 1862
Just 1 match comes up which should be yours. I haven't got any credits otherwise I'd check it for you. Fingers crossed!
- Hi again Rachel,
Just checked the 1901 census and found Sarah aged 59 living with 5 of her children at 5 Harbour Street, Peterhead. She is classified as fishermans widow.
Also I think I've found her in 1891 visiting Thomas Gray in Whinnyfold, Cruden. She is hiding there age 49 fishermans wife by the name of Sarah May.
At a guess I would say she died in 1916 and now I'll go away and let you carry on!
