  • Name ROBERTS, Janet 
    Born 18 May 1844  Bonhill, Dunbartonshire, SCT Find all individuals with events at this location  [1
    • Death certificate reads:
      Father: Wm Roberts; birthplace: Scotland
      Mother: Mary Nenet; birthplace: Scotland
    • Per grandson H. Eugene Johnston: Old Parish Records Births for Janet Roberts list her birth date as 18 May 1844, Bonhill, West Dunbartonshire, Scotland. The cemetery marker for Janet Roberts Johnston list her birth date as 18 May 1846. I strongly believe that the Bonhill Parish record is correct (birth 18 May 1844) and that the cemetery marker date/year is wrong (my great grandfather's memory was not very good). H. Eugene Johnston"
