|James McInnes ??|
John McInnes 1804 * James McInnes ???? * James McInnes 1875* James McInnes 1907
James McInnes was born Lawn Market, Edinburgh, to John McInnes and Christina Scott. , His birth certificate has not been found !!?
I have been
searching for James McInnes’s birth year for
some time now. It became difficult because our James was not very
his age. Certificates I have range him between 1838 to 1845 (an example is in census
1871 age 33 census 1881 age 36).I decided I needed a professional; I
professional geologist at Scots family and asked their advice. They have confirmed
James McInnes didn’t get registered so doesn’t have a birth
|I’m going to use an est. of 1842. My reason for estimate|
|My records show James doesn’t appear in the 1841 census with the rest of his family, and with the age given on his death certificate.|
|John & Christina's children
All born Midlothian ,Scotland
|James's parent’s John and Christina had five children. four appear on the 1841 census they are staying at Anchor close, Edinburgh; John’s occupation is a Slater.
