Looking for any information on Willelmina Ritchie b. 1841 in Urray Scotland with 3 children - Martha Jane b.1860, Jessie b.1865 & George William b.1867. Family was living in Inverness at 1851, 1861 & 1871 Scotland Census with maternal gdmother Jane Ross b.1803. Her parents were Malcolm Ross b.1765 & Grizel Cameron b.1764. Jessie Ritchie immigrated to the US in 1879 & George in 1880 and they settled in Newport RI. Looking for any info on the husband of Willelmina (Ross) Ritchie (could have been James) and the death of Willelmina and Jane Ross. If you lived in Inverness and immigrated to the US in 1880 what port would you leave from? Also, is it possible to get birth records for George William Ritchie who was born 4/17/1867 in Inverness Scotland. Where does one go to get such records? Thanks for any help you may offer.
