Biography

Flag of Scotland Amelia (Millar) Henderson migrated from Scotland to NewZealand. Flag of NewZealand

Born 11 Feb 1817 [1] Kippen Stirlingshire, Scotland [2]

Unconfirmed but would love to confirm date and parents! Henderson-2297 01:13, 6 May 2017 (EDT)

Possible baptism 20 FEB 1815 Kippen, Par. of Clackmannan, STI, SCT [3]

IF this is the correct Amelia!
as there is an entry for the chr. of an Emilia Miller d/o John Miller and Margaret Miller. It is sometimes suggested that this couple, the John and Margaret Miller who married Jan 15 1814 in Kippen are the right parents for Amelia/Emilia, but this doesn't fit either the naming pattern of James and Amelia's children or Amelia's father on her dth cert or grddtr Millie's note that Amelia's mother was a Miss Chrystal

Died 29 Apr 1894 Island Cliff, nr Oamaru, Otago, New Zealand

Golden Wedding

Having just uploaded Amelia HENDERSON nee MILLARs golden wedding photo and reminded myself of the newspaper report of the time
"They had 5 sons, 7 dtrs, all living, 58 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren"
Do we have all of these people identified and included on WikiTree?
Love to hear from you if you are descended from Amelia and can add to our knowledge of the family.
The 5 sons and 7 daughters by my current count:
1. Archibald - 10 children 4 died prior to 1886
2. Janet - 2 children - 1 deceased by 1886
3. Isabella - 6 children - all living 1886
4. Agnes - 3 children - all living 1886
5. Margaret - 9 children - 1 no longer living 1886
6. James - no known children
7. David - 8 children - 1 deceased
8. William - 8 children - all living 1886
9. Elizabeth - 8 children - all living 1886
10. Amelia - 6 children - all living 1886
11. Mary - 8 children - all living 1886
12. John - 5 children - all living 1886
Which makes 72 grandchildren, less 7 known to be deceased, so 65 compared to the 58 known to Amelia at the time.
