Crooks and Stewart, Ardclinis

I was wondering if Gaelic had any influence on the spelling. In terms of date, the information I got that it was likely in the 1800's. That's pretty broad, so if I can get more information, I will let you know! I found a lot of photos of Caroline(Helen) so I'm trying to see if I can find any larger family photos.
Here is the directory I mentioned

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.

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.

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.

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.
