CREIGHTON, Barbara T, m. STURROCK : YoB abt 1858, Guthrie, Angus, Scotland
Posted by: Vern Dander (ID *****8132) Date: March 29, 2008 at 07:04:28

Looking for CREIGHTON connections. A Barbara T Creighton married a William P STURROCK, PoB of both: Scotland. They had at least 5 children, one, a daughter Lilias/Lillie was born in Monifieth, Angus. She married a William B SWANSON, PoB North Dakota or Illinois USA.

The SWANSON couple moved back and forth across Atlantic based on children's PoB's: 1st child, born in Canada (1915), 2nd & 3rd in Scotland (1917 & 1919), 4th & 5th in Canada (1921 & 1923). Family ended up in California, probably returning to US in 1927 based on wife's alien status.

Any insights appreciated.
