In Reply to: Re: BOATH - GLASGOW SOCTLAND by Linda Maclaren of 44

Hi Linda,

thanks for responding to my posting. There are two people called Boath that I am trying to trace or anyone who may of known them.

My G.Grandmother Margaret (nee Curoe) Kennedy died in 1946 at 8 Garrioch Drive Glasgow. A newspaper cutting said that she died at the home of her daughter Mrs J.M.Boath.
I know that my G.Grandmother did not have a daughter of this name and I cannot find a Mrs J.M.Boath married to anyone in the family. I can only persume that Mrs Boath was a friend but would really like to solve this mystery.

Later on Jane (known as Jean) (nee Kennedy) Ferguson - daughter of G.Grandmother Margaret Kennedy died in 1976 and this was reported by her nephew Jon C.Boath of 28 Runuegan Avenue, Elders Lic, Glasgow.
Again I can find no family link to Jon C.Boath but suspect he may of been the son of Mrs J.M.Boath above.
Again when husband of Jane (known as Jean) Ferguson, Robert Ferguson died in 1980 it was again reported by his nephew Jon C.Boath of 4 High Street Kilmarolm

I have searched the records office in Edinburgh for both Mrs J.M.Boath and Jon C.Boath but cannot find them and no family connection to the family. I would love to be able to solve this mystery for my mother as she has always wondered about this.
