Birth ABT 1855 Glasgow, Lanarkshire


Travel to USA
Anne was born in Greenock in 1886. Helen was born in USA in 1887. So they must have gone out there bewteen 1886 and 1887. Donald died on the Ethiopia 30 June 1889 I think this was returning to Scotland.
A Helen McDonald returned to Scotland on board the Ethiopia on 30 Oct 1890 she was travelling with Mrs McDonald aged 29, Alex aged 9, James aged 7, Duncan aged 3 and an infant: I think this is a coincidence as these names are not connected to my Mrs McDonald. Her date of birth is inconclusive as I only have a census DoB which could be rounded up/down.
