I am also searching for the Robertsons (and Duncans) but also have
Walkers, Simpsons and Murrays in my background. Here are some of them
could send you more information if you see any connection. Let me know
there is a connection and if you have additional information.
I am looking for information on and ancestors/descendents of James
who married Margaret Walker on March 1, 1792 in Longside, Aberdeen,
Scotland. Their known children were James (1793), William (1794, Anne
(1797) and Robert (1800).
Robert Robertson and his wife Janet (Jane) Lawson were married November
1829 in Longside,
Aberdeen, Scotland. Their children were:
Alexander: born 1835 in Stricken, Aberdeen, Scotland
George: christened January 20, 1837 in Longside, Aberdeen, Scotland who
married Agnes Todd December 31, 1864 in Longside
Janet: Christened March 23, 1839 in Longside, Aberdeen, Scotland
William: Christened January 15, 1841 in Longside, Aberdeen, Scotland
Robert: Christened October 19, 1842 in Longside, Aberdeen, Scotland
Ann: Christened May 17, 1844 in Longside, Aberdeen, Scotland
Their son Alexander Robertson married Margaret Greig ( born June 17,
on December 8, 1869 in Longside. One of Alexander's and Margaret's
grandfather James Robertson, was born December 29, 1868 in Cairntradlin
Kinellar, county of Aberdeen and died January 19, 1942 in Lake Forest,
Illinois. James Robertson emigrated to the United States arriving on
November 1, 1893.
James married Agnes Duncan March 7, 1895 in Lake Forest. Agnes was born
1871 in Muir of Kinellar, Aberdeenshire and died in 1946 in Lake Forest.
Agnes Duncan arrived in the U.S. May 29, 1893.
I can trace the Greigs back seven additional generations on the
but only one additional generation on the Duncans and two for the
Alexander's and Margaret's other children were:
Alexander: born May 10, 1861 in Longside
Robert: born December 23, 1862 in Rathen, Aberdeen, Scotland
John: born October 27, 1864 in Rathen, Aberdeen, Scotland
Margaret Ann: born July 11, 1867 in Kinellar, Aberdeen, Scotland
James: born December 29, 1868 in Kinellar, Aberdeen, Scotland (my
George: born February 6, 1870 in Kinellar, Aberdeen, Scotland
Janet: born February 12, 1871 in Kinellar, Aberdeen, Scotland
Thomas: born May 15, 1872 in Kinellar, Aberdeen, Scotland
Barbara: born July 26, 1873 in Kinellar, Aberdeen, Scotland
Thank you in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide.

> Hi everyone, I'd like to say that this money is money well spent and
like to ask if I dare do you know if they do the same with the English
Census. (My husbands English) and I have found so much of my own family
history from the use of that and the familysearch.org and a couple of
and find that none are too expensive or even free!! I'd also like to
copies of earlier ones. Would appreciate any advice on how to obtain
of them. Names I am researching are
> WALKER, GREIG, SIMPSON, ROBERTSON, EWEN, CHRYSTAL, HAY, MURRAY and
only 3 generations. I would also like to say that I have been in
with about 6 other people who are related to me by using the method of
helping one another. Many thanks for the interesting things we talk
on these pages.
