you need to get the marriage certificate for Willamena and Alexander to
confirm some of the details you think are correct e.g their parents. The
Scotlands People website will give you the Scottish census up to 1911,
it is a pay site but is very reasonable, it also has the births deaths
and marriage records back to 1855 and prior to that the parish records.
The Scottish census on Ancestry does not give all the details of the
Hope this helps

Just beginning my research on Jennie McClymont married to Alexander Crosbie, I believe in
Scotland. I estimate their birth years would be 1862-1880.
Their daughter, Willamena Baron Crosbie, married Archibald Ross, Surry, England, and my
guess is they met during WWI, as Archibald Ross was born in Canada and did go with the
Canadian forces in WWI.
I don't have access to Scotland Census, but did see Alexander and Jeanie Crosbie
listed in 1901 with children James D, and Willamina B. (1895) and Margaret (1894) Location
Ayshire. I was told that Wilhemina was born in Ardrossan. Are any records available on
line for this birth?
If anyone has access to this census, I would so appreciate the information from it. That
would give me some approximate dates for them. Thank you in advance.
