My Turnbull ancestry starts with Walter Turnbull.I don’t have birth or death information, but he was married in Renton, Dunbartonshire, Scotland on August 31, 1792 to Janet Roy.Their children were Mathew, Alexander, Margaret, Isabella, Mathew, Janet, Walter & David.Alexander shows up as being born in Ireland; the rest I think were born in Scotland.Isabella is my direct ancestor; she was born on July 10, 1799 in Bonhill, Dunbartonshire, Scotland.She married James Mathew Rough (or Ruff) on Nov. 11, 1822 in Deny, Stirlingshire, Scotland. James Mathew Rough was born Apr. 22, 1797 in Dunipace, Stirlingshire, Scotland.He died in Illinois, United States in 1878. They immigrated to the United States about 1828, bringing 3 year old John Albert Rough with them and leaving one year old Ann to be raised by relatives.They didn’t think she could survive the trip.I think Isabella died about 1875.My direct ancestor Walter Turnbull Rough was born in New Hampshire, United States in 1829.
If anyone knows the parents of my Walter Turnbull or Janet Roy I would appreciate the information.Also James Mathew Rough’s parents are John Rough and Jannet Monack (or Monach). John was born May 16, 1769 in Scotland; Jannet was born Feb. 3, 1770.They were married July 7, 1791 in Balfron, Dunbartonshire, Scotland.I need parent information about them too.If this ties into any of your family history, please let me know.
