PS. I dont know what RE stands for.

Sarah on the above list would be around the right age for Sarah born SA in 1852. Maybe father and daughter coming back into the country??

Re: David Ferguson Greig

Remittance Emigrants = RE

That is rather odd.

617/3 Lanark does not fit ??

Sarah was said to be a few years older than David. So hard to know what bits to believe.

Maybe the name Mary as his mother on the death cert. is a error

Re: David Ferguson Greig

Seems there are no records to help on SP.

David must have spent some time in SA after arrival around 1851.

Would expect to find a death for mother Sarah between 1849 and 1863.

If that is the same John with daughter Sarah born in SA do we have deaths for other children born in SA?

If the whole family returned to Scotland perhaps Sarah and other daughter(s) died there??

If Sarah was born 1820- 1825 say there is no death 1855 - 1863 on SP to fit.

Has anyone obtained the above death cert? Not sure what info would be on it but it might give a lead or at the very least confirm or elimate its the right John Greig.

Re: David Ferguson Greig

The person who was searching elsewhere some time ago was going to get a copy of that death certificate but no follow up to say what it contained.
