Have been searching for Thomas A. Norval b. in Scotland 1827 (Hammond, St. Lawrence County, NY 1860 census information for some time now).On a recent search of the LDS IGI I have found a Thomas Andrew Norwell b. 23 May, 1827 in Perthsire Scotland, parents Charles Norwell and Agnes Anderson.However, when I do a couple of different searches, I find a marriage between Charles Norval and Agnes Anderson in Kirkcaldy, 04 Nov. 1822.OPR records show that this couple also had a son, Joseph Norval, b. Feb. 1826 in Prestonpans, East Lothian.
In the 1841 census of Thornton, Markinch Fifeshire I have found a Joseph Norval, age 70, living with a Joseph, age 15 and a Thomas, age 13.I believe that this Joseph sr. is a grandfather or uncle and that the Thomas could well be my gr.gr. grandfather.
The wife of the Joseph sr. could possibly be Janet Cree (Crea).If anyone has information on this family, please contact me.Thanks. Sue
