My husband descends from Janet "Jessie" Lumsden, 1823 SCOT-1 May 1863, bur. Greenwood Cem., Rockford, Winnebago Co. IL, daughter of Thomas & Janet/Jennett (Jamison) Lumsden; m. 19 June 1845, Dundee, Angus, Scotland, to William Beattie McNeil, 7 Nov 1823 Dundee-14 Apr 1911, bur. Greenwood Cem., Rockford IL.

My info on Thomas Lumsden: b. 17 May 1796 Dundee (International Genealogical Index, Family History Library, citing film #0993424); m. 13 Mar 1820 Dundee, to Jennet Jamison (IGI, film #0993404), b. 13 May 1794 Dundee (IGI, film #0993424).

Alexander's children b. 1865 CAN West, 1868 IL, 1869 IA (1870 & 1880 Sullivan Co. MO census; illustrating migration trail)

Would like to hear from descendants of Thomas Lumsden.
