I am looking for Catherine Munro, born in Tain in 1852, siblings-Helen, John and Alec

+4 votes
I can't find my great grandmother Catherine Munro. b 1852 in Tain.  She immigrated with her husband, Colin Campbell Simpson who was from Invergordon.   They were married in Aberdeen at St Nicholas Church and resided there for a time. This is frustrating because it wasn't that long ago.  I hope you can help!

This is an 1871 Scotland census for a Catherine Munro, born Tain c1851, living in Tain and employed as a sevant.

Helen Munro, records her birth being Tain also. Henen's employment is listed as "Interest of money".

Helen Munro 50
Catherine Munro 20
Thank you very much!  Is there an address?  Mention of a father?

Address is given as  "Chapel Road Orchard Place"  No image is available so one cannot see whether Helen was a widow or unmarried. I have tried to trace both in earlier census without success.

Interestingly, there is another Catherine Munro, born around 1851 Tain, in the same 1871 census, living in Kincardine, "Upper Glenfield" the daughter of  Finlay Munro & wife Margaret. I didn't comment on this as Catherine is recorded in the 1851 census.This is the entry:
