He married 1. Jean 'Jennie' Scott 'of Harden' on 24 February 1805, Yarrow, Selkirkshire. Jean Scott was born 1780-1790 possibly in Harden, Roxburghshire. She could have been the daughter of George Scott,  M2TL-5VG on FamilySearch. I'll have to look at the baptism record in my local Family History Center to see if there is more in the image than just two names.

They had three sons, one of whom died a few months after birth:

A. James Scott Cowan (proven by DNA)
Born 19 August 1809 • Yarrow Feus, Selkirkshire, Scotland
Died 29 September 1893 • Galt, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

B. Andrew Cowan
Born 25 January 1814 • Yarrow, Selkirkshire, Scotland
Died 5 April 1814 • Yarrow, Selkirkshire, Scotland

C. Walter Scott Cowan my 2nd great-grandfather
Born 31 October 1817 • Yarrow Feus, Selkirkshire, Scotland
Died 20 June 1886 • Wellington, Ontario, Canada 

James came first to Canada to find land for the family before they came in 1832. 

Here is James with his family in 1851:


Walter Cowan married again, presumably after Jennie's death, sometime between Walter Scott's birth and the new marriage on 4 November 1821 in Yarrow, Selkirkshire, Scotland

2. Agnes Willison
Born  ~1800 • Scotland
Died 1853 in Galt, Waterloo, Upper Canada, now Ontario, Canada (only her headstone established that date)

Walter and Agnes had two children in Yarrow Feus, William and Jane Scott. Jane died in Ontario unmarried. I have no identified DNA matches through William's line - yet. I've not built it all the way down yet. 

As you can see, I have more work to do on this family, especially in the Scottish records. If you have any connection to the family, please speak up! I love collaborating with cousins.

Re: Calton burial ground Edinburgh

Lauraine Syrnick
 

Not too sure, but is this what you are looking for?


My GG Grandfather is buried by himself on a hill near Maywick Beach in Shetland.  He died in a fishing accident many years ago and not found until 6 months later.  So he was dragged in a sail to this burial spot and his brother asked to identify him. This resulted in the brother having a nervous breakdown and it was some time before he could fish again.  It took me years of searching to finally find a written piece about the accident but finally did.

Hi listers
 Good to see the group up and running. My certificate for the burial ground has it spelt two ways so I am not sure, but am looking for index or a disc for burials.  Was not needing it when in Scotland earlier this year and was at Scots Genealogy. Guess that will need to be my first port of call. Suppose it is useless to look for Lair records , which in the past I have received for Peebles, but am told very few have survived.
Am looking for Plenderleith and Sutherland at present.

RCA = Register of Corrected Entries where information obtained subsequent to the issue of the death certificate includes information not previously available.  I have two of them for deaths in Scotland.

Re: illigitmacy

Anne Burgess
 

RCA is a typographical error for RCE, which is the abbreviation for Register of Corrected Entries. A certificate, once recorded, can't be altered, so any changes (e.g. addition of a father following a paternity case, an amendment to cause of death following post-mortem, a change in a child's name and so on) - are recorded in a separate book, the RCE. If you view a certificate at Scotland's People that has an RCE entry, there should be a link to the page in the RCE.
