Thanks. . Yes I have visited his grave many times.    He was my   great grandfather.  My father was raised in the house his grandfather died in.

It is the Scottish side I am stuk on.
The reason I suggested profiles for his siblings and/or family members is because I can than narrow down the possibilities and find the correct Scotland census records.  There are a lot of James Jamiesons to search through and a few more related names would help to do a comparison.  I don't want to send you information that is wrong or you may already have.
