I've just found a death record for an ancestor who died in 1868 age 74
in Edinburgh. On her certificate it stated her husband (Robert Falconer,
deceased) was a private in the 74th regiment. They were married in 1811
- so assume they were born around early 1890's. They had 4 children
between 1817 & 1826 in Edinburgh.

Any ideas where he may have served - and where I might find his death
records? I'm sure he was deceased by 1846 (based on some letters written
between 2 of Robert's sons between 1843-1846.

Many Thanks,

Karen,
Sydney, Australia
