Henderson from Wick, Caithness
 
In the Caithness paper - Northern Ensign 29 March 1922
HENDERSON At Sibster Burn, Halkirk on the 24th inst, Sinclair Campbell, relict of James Henderson, Kilmster, Wick. American and Australian papers please copy.

James and Sinclair had several children in Kilmster, Wick

John 1868, Elizabeth 1870, James 1873, George 1881, William 1883, Margaret 1885, Donald 1887 and Annie 1890

I know what happened to Donald as he is my line and Annie I have found married to David Malcolm and dying in Edinburgh in 1961 but can anyone help me find some of the older children who were supposed to have gone to Australia. Obviously some may have gone to America. I have looked at Trove but not finding anything whereas I thought perhaps the copy of the Northern Ensign might be in an Australian paper somewhere for a clue?

Hi Barbara

Maybe worth a thought for starters..

Queensland, Australia, Passenger Lists, 1848-1912
John Henderson
Age: 20
Birth Year: abt 1868
Place of Origin: Caithness, Scotland
Ship Name: Jumna
Port of Arrival: Brisbane

I notice he has an older bro., David but I can's see him after 1881...

Not sure about this one, have now found a couple of possibles for 1891 Scotland and I can't see a death in Australia with those parents :rolleyes:
