Looking for any additional genealogical information on Robert Wynd, born 1848 in Dundee, Forfashire, Scotland shown at 21 Craige St, Dundee in 1881 Scotland census. Wife is Margaret Wynd, maiden name unknown, born 1847 in Abernethy, Perthshire, Scotland. Robert Wynd's occupation is shown as blacksmith.

By the 1891 Scotland Census Robert Wynd was living with Margaret at 17 Kinnard St, Dundee, Angus, Scotland. Living with them are sons, James, 16; Robert, 14; Michael, 5; as well as William Sturrock age 16 and Alexander Sturrock, 13.

Believe this James, then aged 60, and Margaret Wynd, then aged 62, left Dundee, Scotland to come to America to live departing from Glasgow and arriving in New York April 15, 1908. In America they would join their son, James Wynd, who had immigrated from Scotland and arrived in America on February 27, 1894 when he was only 20 years old.

This couple lived in Tunkhannock, Wyoming Co, Pennsylvania from the time of their arrival until their deaths. They are buried in the Sunnyside Cemetery, Tunkhannock, PA.

Their son, James Wynd, who married Eva Miller Kneller, on February 28, 1900 at the Presbyterian Manse then located on Wyoming Avenue in Tunkhannock. This couple celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in 1950 and had a family of 11 children who were born and raised in Tunkhannock, PA. James Wynd, Sr. (born 1874 Dundee Scotland, died 1958) and his wife, Eva (born 1881 and died in 1957) are also interred at Sunnyside Cemetery, Tunkhannock, Wyoming Co, PA. Some members of this family continue to live in the area today.

Through research in both Pennsylvania and Scotland census' I've found some information on the family.

Please contact me if you are familiar with the elders in Scotland or any of their relatives.
