Hello Gregg

 

There are a number of possibilities in the 1901 Scottish census with father

David and children John, Robert and David. But two are in Dunfermline in

1901 so seem the most likely. They are:

Elspeth RUSSELL, 46, wife, born Dunfermline

David RUSSELL, 18, son, compositor's apprentice, born Dunfermline

Janet RUSSELL, 11, daughter, at school, born Dunfermline

Margaret RUSSELL 8, daughter, at school, born Dunfermline

James RUSSELL, 4, son, born Dunfermline

Notes for Margaret Russell:

From Norrie's SCT-FIFE post:

 

2148    Alexander BUIST died 10.9.1945 age 52

                    Wife Margaret RUSSELL died 25.4.1972 age

---

Otherwise, no particular reason to presume this Margaret is the same one as the daughter, except that the year of birth seems to fit, presuming Margaret was the same age as Alexander. Norrie's post did not give age of Margaret from the tombstone inscription.

Generation No. 3

 

     9.  David3 Russell (David2, David1 Rusell) was born ABT. 1882 in of, Govan, Fife, Scotland, and died 29 Nov 1915.  He married Jane Adamson.  She was born ABT. 1884, and died 26 Sep 1937.

 

Notes for David Russell:

Only known from the Ellis Island record of John Russell (1913).

===

From Norrie's post to SCT-FIFE:

1650    Erected by Jane ADAMSON in memory of  her

    husband David RUSSELL died 29.11.1915 age 33

    above Jane ADAMSON died 26.9.1937 age 53

    son Alexander Adamson RUSSELL died 13.7.1985 age 77

    his wife Adamina TAIT died 31.3.1990 age 77

---

I have no reason to reconstruct the family such that this David Russell is positioned here. But I want to put him somewhere. Plus, this derived year of birth fits well with the derived year of birth from the census.
