Re: Searching for John McLeod

I feel better in knowing you are not irritated with me.... and thanks for the suggestions. I'm thinking those kids born to a couple with the same name are not in the same family that has three siblings - Donald, Christina, and Rebecca. But, I'll continue to look. I remember years and years ago when I was trying to find the parents of my John Ross (b. abt. 1814 in Kinloss) that finding the right Alexander Ross and Margaret Bremner in that Ross Chromity (?) took me months to find the right one.... but, that was 30 or more years ago and we didn't have computers....
I'm anxious to get the records from Ladybridge Hospital to see if the John McLeod on the 1881 census was really from Dyke. From the information I received from the archivist, it will probably be months, years, or never before she can look at those records. I tried to find the census to see what you saw; but my ignorance on how to use Scotland's People overwhelmed me!!! By the way, I did find a death record for Christina Ross in Forres. She died a year or two before Rebecca's marriage and death. I haven't found anything abt their brother Donald....and I haven't found a death record for their mother Christian. Oh well, these problems are very minor when compared with our real problems in the U.S. -- the President and the virus!!!!
