red mail MACKAY, Elizabeth, 1898-1980, Argyll, Scotland
Looking for information on, and descendants of, Elizabeth Mackay of Oban, Argyll, Scotland. Parents were Alexander Mackay, 1856-1936, born in Scotland, and Edith Helen Burns, 1862-1946, born in Canada. Connie
I am looking for information with regard to, or for the descendants of, Kate, (Catherine), Neil and Roderick who were all born in Oban in the early 1900's. They were children of Alexander and Rachel ( m.n. Macleod) and there were two other sons, Hugh who was my Grandad and Alexander who died in infancy. I believe that Kate may have married a Robert Miller Russell and that Neil married a Mary Thomson. It is possible that Roderick married a Lillian Harriett Cann in Southend, England. If I am on the right track, Kate died in Paisley in 1970. Neil married in Dalmally . He died in Oban in 1982 (last address 52 Soroba Road) and his wife Mary died in1996 ( last address Carraig Thura Retirement Home, Loch Awe). Although his wife died in Southend in 1964, Roderick appears to have returned to Scotland and died in Paisley in 1977. I don't know if any of them had any children. If anyone has any info I would be delighted to hear from you.
red mail William John Poole and wife Emma
This family lived in Oban in 1861. Address - 49 Tweedale Street, Hillside Cottage: William John (41) was Supervisor of Inland Revenue. There were children: William 17, MaryAnn 13, Elizabeth Emma 9, Richard 7, Frederick Thomas 4, and Ellen Letitia 2; all listed as scholars. What school would they have gone to and how could I find any information. I would be very grateful for some help. Thanks Joan
red mail Colin Anderson Family
Colin Anderson of Oban, Argyllshire emigrated to the USA sometime between 1825-1860? This is just a estimate based on a son's birth in 1864. After he emigrated, I am unsure of where he first settled, but I believe his wife was born in New York. He was a minister of the Methodist faith and was quite instrumental in establishing the church in California. He was my great-great grandfather. I would like to be able to find out anything on his birth family, mother, father and any siblings. His family is still all in the Roseville, Calif. area where he eventually settled, although his ministry took him up and down California as he was a minister that traveled from church to church in early California.
red mail Maygothling Family
I'm researching the above family who came originally from the Oban area, but there was a change of name (family rift) from McLauchlan. Not sure on the spelling as it was only passed down verbally. If anyone can help I'd be very grateful

I'm trying to find Christina Archibald, she would be in her mid/late 70s now. Moved to New Zealand in the late 60s & worked for a car rental firm in Christchurch. She married my father in early 1970 & divorced a couple of years later. Returned to Scotland sometime later in the 70s to her home town of Oban. Any information or details would very thankfully appreciated.

red mail Roberts
My Father John William Roberts grew up in Charles street Oban around the period 1899-1919. the family emigrated to USA in 1920. I think one daughter returned to Scotland. I am searching for any further information.
red mail Alexander May
I am trying to trace my uncle who went missing during the second world war. He was born in 1918 and may no longer be alive but I would appriciate any information about what happened to him.
red mail Mackintosh Oban
I am looking for the Burial place of my Great Grandfather and Mother who died in 1889 and 1891 in Oban. They were David and Emma Mackintosh and attended the old St Columba's Parish Church which I believe is now the Hydro Electric offices. Council Burials Dept. do not have records back that far but I wonder if anyone knows if there are records of the Pennyfuir Cemetery that might help?
