    Notes 
    • (Research):The first documents found for James Oswald indicate the following: He was born in Scotland. He was a stonemason. His father was Robert Oswald who was a stone mason. The 1871 census record indicates that he was born in Kirkcaldy, Scotland in 1824. No record specificly records his mothers name. There is but one family in Kirkcaldy, Abbotshall area that fits the descriptionl. Robert Oswald, stone mason husband to Isabella Auchterlonie. They had a son named James in 1823 in Abbotshall. Soon after his birth the family moved to Kirkcaldy. The 1851 census he is recorded in offers further evidence. He lives next to a James Auchterlonie, who it appears would be his cousin. Further evidence of his mothers name come from how he named his children. The first daughter was named Jane. Jane was his wifes mother. The second daughter was Ann Isabella. His first son was named Robert. He named his children by the Scottish naming pattern which clearly shows that the first names of his parents were Robert and Ann Isabella
