William Telfer/Telford born 1757. Born in Castleton, Scotland. Almost certainly died there, also, between 1851-1861. Listed 1841 as Telfer, 1851 as Telford, age 94. Had a daughter Margaret, a son Robert and a daughter Isabella who lived with him in 1841 and 1851.
Margaret Telfer 1802-1882 married William Armstrong 1791-1869. They had children, Betty, Mary, James, John, William and Walter. Mary, John and Walter went to Stark Co. IL in 1850's. Isabella never married, but the census records 2 others living with her as daughters in 1861?
I am trying to find any further information on William Telfer. Who was his wife? What is his date of death? Where was he buried? His parents would be a plus!
Does anyone have this old gentleman in their family tree? Or know anything of this family?
