    Here is the directory I mentioned

    Templars hall here

    There was a Campbeltown Photographic Studio but I don't know when it opened; photography made huge advances from about 1870 onwards. Would they be about 60 in the photo???

    Have you any idea where Helen was when she died?

    Sorry for the delay! Helen was listed as 38 Saddell Street, Campbeltown. She passed away on June 19, 1954 at the age of 90.

    That would probably be my guess for their age in the photo.

    I am going to also work on compiling all the photographs together. I have photos of Helen and Duncan together, and I'm hoping I can search through those and find larger family portraits. When I get those together, I will share for you to look through.

    It would be so good to see a picture of Roseann; and maybe Charles Mclean as well...
    I cant quite find Helen listed here, but maybe you can

    Have you found the Stewarts of Campbeltown website? I don't seem able to get on it, but I'm sure if you could it would be interesting.

    Also, the Kintyre forum has a genealogy section. Not so much used these days.

    This photo may be of interest. If I had to guess, it almost looks like Henry Stewart in the lower right corner. He is wearing the same hat as his portrait with Victoria.

    I will look through that website you shared!

    I can tell you that my Grandparents and Great Grandparents were buried in the Kilkerran Cemetery in Campbeltown. (I have a photo of their graves.) I will search there.

    That is a great family photo; thank you for sharing it.

    I made some assumptions to interpret it, but could be wrong.

    1. Taken about 1900, so everyone is 30 years older than 1871 census
    2.Boys look like Henry, girls look like Victoria. ( gives me too many girls)
    3. The small ones are grandchildren. Rose Ann had 5 by then. Some of them teenagers; possibly the boys on the back row?

    Did you work out which one was Helen? And which Duncan?

    I seem to remember something about Henry being buried at Kilkerran, but cant just find the grave.
    If that is so, Victoria would also be there. Rose Ann Stewart is definitely buried there.

    I could be very wrong about this photo.
    Henry could be much older and surrounded by 3 generations?

    In the middle row, second from the left, my mom said that that was her Grandmother, which would be Caroline Stewart Martin, and her husband, 4th from left in back row is Archibald McCallum. But I'm not 100% sure. The second from the left looks a bit more like Helen (older) to me.

    In this photo, you can see Caroline Stewart Martin. https://www.flickr.com/photos/lillouns/40945375162/ She's the first female on the left. She was born in 1904. I'm hoping my mom can get the actual copy of the first photo to see if there's anything written on the back.

    Thank you so much for that info! I was able to find it. I found RoseAnn, but there didn't appear to be a photo.

    Charles McLean of Campbeltown, Roseann Stewart's husband was the son of Charles Mclean a fisherman from 'Ireland'.
    His father was Duncan Maclean a carter born about 1785 somewhere in Ireland and married to Elizabeth McLauchlan. If anyone has come across this family and can help me to get further back I would be delighted.

    I found a note that Henry Stewart's mother was Sarah Wright. Does that seem right?

    There is a booklet in Campbeltown library which lists burials in the cemetery.
    The librarian kindly checked for me, but was unable to find Henry and Victoria.
    Most likely there is a gap in the records.
