Family of John Neilson in Heaton, Newcastle Upon Tyne circa 1901

Hello Everyone,

I am hoping to see if there are any relatives or living descendants of the family headed by John Neilson (born 13 Oct 1862, Edinburgh) and Marion Cochrane (born 10 Dec 1867, Dunfermline) who may be reading this message.

The 1901 English Census has the Neilson family living at 167 Bolingbroke Street located in Heaton, Newcastle Upon Tyne, England.

The children of John Neilson and Marion Cochrane include:

1. Marion Neilson (born about 1890, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Heaton, Northumberland, England)
2. Robina Neilson (born about 1893, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Heaton, Northumberland, England)
3. Hellen Neilson (born about 1895, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Heaton, Northumberland, England)
4. John Neilson (born about 1896, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Heaton, Northumberland, England)
5. William Neilson (born about 1900, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Heaton, Northumberland, England)

At the moment, I do not know if John and Marion had any more children after 1901. The 1901 census record indicates that John's father George Neilson (born about 1839, Edinburgh) was also living with the family. The occupation listed for both John and George Neilson indicated that they were engine fitters.

John Neilson, son of George Neilson and Catherine Robb married Marion Cochrane, daughter of Moses Cochrane and Marion McBain on June 29, 1887 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Marion Cochrane is a female cousin of mine through her father Moses Cochrane who in turn is my great, great grandfather and thus all Neilson children of John and Marion are also Cochrane related cousins of mine as well.

At the moment, I know that John Neilson as had the following brothers and sisters:

1. George Neilson (born about 22 Jan 1860, Colinton, Midlothian, Scotland)
2. Catherine Lang Neilson (born 17 Jan 1861, Colinton, Midlothian, Scotland)
3. Helen Neilson (born 22 Nov 1866, Leith, Midlothian, Scotland)
4. Henry Neilson (born 18 Feb 1869, Leith, Midlothian, Scotland)
5. Elizabeth Neilson (born about 02 Nov 1870, Leith, Midlothian, Scotland)
6. William Neilson (born about 25 Jun 1874, Leith, Midlothian)

If anyone reading this message has any connections to the above Neilson family members, I look forward to hearing from you!
