Janet Haddow - Carluke or "Gill" who emigrated to USA
Posted by: Karen Elizabeth Fell (ID *****2411) Date: January 02, 2003 at 19:16:08

I am trying to find more about Janet Haddow.

She was born c.1778-1783 (I am pretty sure in Carluke)
She married William Fell in 1799 (who emigrated to Canada c.1830) She died 19 March 1850.

She may be related to John Haddow (brother?) b.1762 of Easterseet, Carluke, Lanark who married Elizabeth Hamilton. They had a son James Haddow b.05Apr1803 in Carluke.

Also, I am trying to find out about somebody close to her who is referred to as "Gill" who emigrated to the USA sometime before her death in 1850. A Gill Haddow? maybe?

In a letter dated 21Mar1850 from Janet Haddow's son Thomas Fell it states:

"I have sent you a news paper where her death appears & have sent one to Gill to the states, I may get no thanks
for it but I cannot help it.

She requested me to take her to Carluke if I could get liberty to lay her in the Gaush__nt lair. George Hamilton called & told me that when he sold the property to his brother that he had reserved the rights of the Burying ground for Mother & family at Carluke."

Any connections or info you might have would be greatly appreciated.

Karen Fell, Canada
