Hi Timothy. This is intrigueing. I do have a Nellie Primrose with no father's name who is the daughter of a Nellie Primrose. My Nellie 'disappears' after 1901. However, she was born in 1877, not 1881 (although she could have been economical with her age. The witness Dugald Lowden (Louden??) provides a further link. I have a Dugald Louden, a cousin of my Nellie who was born in 1899.

Alison ... I'm trying to locate your information on Genes Reunited. I had never been at the site, so this is exciting. So far have not found you, but eventually perhaps. I have come up with 2 trees on my Adam Primrose, but I don't think are yours. .... Ruby

Dear Ruby, Your Adam Primrose 1787-1855 (wife Janet Wilson) was cousin to my grannie's grandfather Adam Primrose 1798-1874. They were both tin & coppersmiths, but my Adam took on the family business and employed your Adam. If you enter your Adam with those dates and Janet Wilson, then Genes reunited should put us in touch and I can open my tree to you, which you can copy as far back as 1490 (if you like). Some of my "birth dates" may be baptism dates. Best wishes Alison.

How exciting to know that you have the line on your tree. Do you have anything further back? Interesting that you have a different date of birth for John Primrose. Thanks!

Hi Ruby - yes I have your line on my tree. Nice to 'meet' you here. I have his birthdate as 22nd Dec 1835 for some reason. I got some of the initial information on this branch from Mary Primrose whose line is from James' brother William.

I am researching John Primrose who was born on 20 Dec 1836 at Bonnhill, Dunbartonshire, Scotland to James Primrose and Elizabeth Collins. He is shown on the 1851 Census as a 14 year old male lodger at Bonhill, Millburn Farm. He arrived on 12 August 1851 at the port of New York on the "American Lass" from Glasgow, Scotland. Coming with him was Adam Primrose born about 1833 (brother). On 14 Jan. 1862 John married Juliet MacGregor, daughter of John MacGregor and Jane/Jean Robinson. She was born 20 June 1840 in Balmaha, Sterlingshire, Scotland. John Primrose died 29 April 1907 in Norway, Benton Co., Iowa and Juliet died 17 April 1916 in Cedar Rapids, Linn Co., Iowa.

James Primrose (father of John) was born 23 Sept 1812 in Dumbarton, Dunbartonshire, Scotland to Adam Primrose and Janet Wilson. He married Elizabeth Collins on 13 April 1833 in Bonhill, Dunbartonshire, Scotland. She was born in Dumbarton on 5 April 1815 to Robert Collins and Flora Douglas. James Primrose died 13 May 1904 in Iowa.
