Hi, I am looking for a friend. Robert McPherson was born in Paisley Scotland on 28 Aug 1873. According to the 1900 and the 1920 census records, Robert immigrated to Boston or possibly New York on 1894. We believe it was Boston. He married Isabelle Mitchell about 1897, according to the 1900 census. Their first children were Margaret born 1898 and Elizabeth born 1900. I found these dates on the Boston Ward 25, Suffolk MA 1900 census.
In the 1920 census, he is living in Boston Ward 26, and his additional children are,
Isabella born 1904
Robert born 1906
James born 1910
His daughter Elizabeth has married James Bush of Oklahoma, and their son John Bush is 1 year 4 months. John Bush was born about 1918.
I would really love a marriage record for Robert McPherson and his wife Isabelle Mitchell. Hopefully it is available with his and possibly her parents listed. Isabelle Mitchell was also born in Scotland. According to family history, Isabelle was born in Bishopton, Scotland.
Robert died in 1959 and Isabelle died in 1829. They are buried in Brighton MA.
Thank you for any help. This will be the last bit of information needed to bridge the "gap" to Scotland.
Thank you again.
Happy New Year! Liz Yarmouth Maine
