Francis Robertson was a paternal great great grandfather born 1821 Angus, Forfarshire. He was married to Isabella Strachan who was born 1823 also Forfarshire.They were married at Montrose in 1841. I have all info tracing family down to me. However, the problem I have is tracing back to his parents and grandparents etc.
Unconfirmed info I have indicates his grandparents were Francis Robertson (b.1752) and Elizabeth Roger (b.1756) . They had a family of eleven children consisting of 8 daughters and 3 sons. The sons were : Francis(b.1792), John(b.1794) and James (b.1796). In keeping with naming conventions of the day, each son named one of their sons Francis.
The death registration form of Francis (b.1821) lists his parents as John Robertson, a blacksmith and, Elizabeth Miller. I'm leaning toward John (b.1794) as the father but can't match dates of birth.
My maternal family lineage is Robertson. Have solid data for Enoch Stafford Robertson in Fairfax, VA during 1840's thru 1970's. Would like to learn earlier ancestory beginnings in USA, with assumption family has Scottish lineage. Gary
