I am searching for information re:Thomas A. Norval, b. 1827 in Scotland.(from 1860 census information, Hammond, St. Lawrence County, NY State) and I have found on the LDS IGI a Thomas Andrew Norwell b. 23 May 1827 in Perthshire, Sct. the son of Charles Norwell and Agnes Anderson.Searching for the marriage of this couple, I find a Charles Norval married an Agnes Anderson 4 Nov. 1822 in Kircaldy, Fifeshire.OPR records have a recorded birth of a Joseph Norval b. 1826 in Prestonpans, E. Lothian which has not shown up on the LDS information.
In the 1841 census of Thornton, Markinch, Fifeshire, I find a Joseph Norval, age 70, living with a Joseph, age 15 and a Thomas age 13.I believe that this Joseph sr. was the boys' grandfather or uncle and that he was the husband of Janet Cree (Crea). If anyone can shed further light on this family, I would be grateful to hear from you. Thanks Sue
