SPEARS or SPEIRS, LAWSON ,ROBERTSON 1850s LKS,SCT.
I am seeking information about my grandfather John Spears who immigrated to the U.S. in 1872.
He was born about Jan.1,1853 (date uncertain) and lived near Glasgow or at least near the river according to questionable oral history.
He had a letter which was always described as important for some unknown reason. The letter is dated 5 January 1828 and addressed to Mrs. ALEXANDER LAWSON c/o Mr./Mrs. ROBERTSON, Tobago Street, Carlton, Glasgow, Scotland. It describes his voyage to New York and gives instructions on what his wife (Margaret) should pack
when she comes over on the ship CAMILLUS. We have no idea of his connection to these people, but ship arrival records show a Margaret Lawson and three children Jean, Margaret, and Alexander arrived in New York on 9-8-1828 on this ship. Believe this
may be the Alexander born to Alexander Lawson/Margaret Robertson Lawson on 4 July 1819 according to OPR. The letter also refers to Margaret's brother being on the same voyage and heading for New London. It also refers to an Andrew, who is to make
voyage on the Sam Robertson.

I am researching my husband's last name, spelled STREZENEC when great grandfather immigrated to America.
His family originated from Mala Hradna & Cuklasovce Slovakia. Sister immigrated from Hungary.
Any help in tracing this family line is greatly appreciated.

I need to find the death certificate of Alexander Greer born: 1813 in Carter Co. Tennessee, and died in 1880 in Grayson Co. Virginia. He is buried in Grayson Co. Va near the Mouth Wilson, NC. I need this in order to get into the DAR, to prove that he is the son of James Greer born: 1783 in Wilkes Co. NC and died in 1844 in Ashe Co. NC, James Greer had an Estate administrator by Jesse Greer and he did not mention any heir, so a death certificate will be my only chance. Willa Mae Carpenter Wood, Alexander is my ggg-grandfather. Thanks for any help.
I hope someone out there can help me. I have a photo with George Alfred Hardham dob 24/3/1882 Death date 1967 with his wife and children who I have been researching. I have all the family but one, I am assuming the other child in the photo is a son.
The family I have is his wife Lena May m/s Blair born 1883 died 1973 in Melbourne
Son George 1912
Daughter Jean Blair 1911-2008
Daughter Dorothy dates unknown at this stage
and this other boy who looks younger than the rest of the children but I cannot seem to find him.
Hopefully someone can help, the family all lived and seem to have died in Melbourne, Australia.
