Livingstone - Zambia

David Livingstone was born on March 19, 1813 in the mill town of Blantyre, Lanarkshire, Scotland, into a Protestant family believed to be descended from the highland Livingstones, a clan that had been previously known as the Clan MacLea. Born to Neil Livingstone (1788-1856) and his wife Agnes (1782-1865), David, along with many of the Livingstones, was employed in the cotton mill of H. Monteith - David and brother John working 12-hour days as "piecers," tying broken cotton threads on the spinning machines.David Livingstone's father Neil was very religious, a Sunday School teacher and teetotal

Discussion on Livingstone

THOMAS MACGREGOR :

John M. Livingstone or Livingston born 1877 to his parents, James Livingstone or Livingston and his wife, Euphemia who was born in Canada to Scottish parents. John M. Livingstone was born at Rock Creek, County of Otoe, Nebraska. Was he related in any way to a John M. Livingston born 1834 to a Daniel Livingston (or Livingstone) and his wife, Margaret Shanks? Daniel Livingston (or Livingstone) had been born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1806, and one assumes that he died in Ohio before 1862. Is it possible that Daniel Livingstone was a relative of James Livingstone who had been born in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland 828/29? John M. Livingstone of Otoe, Nebraska died on Christmas Day, 1940 and was buried in Wyuka Cemetery, Nebraska City with other members of his family, What did the letter "M" represent and was it the same as the John M. Livingston of Ohio who was born in 1834?

"Tom, Ive just checked the 1900 USA census, its says that John's mums name was Eugenie, and his mum's birthplace says Canada English. Both sets of John's grandparents were born in Scotland. It also says that Eugenie was the mum to 8 children, and that James Livingstone (Johns dad) worked in farming."

"OK, let's figure this family out. You've struggled much too long with them. Bear with me for the next half a day...I'll keep adding to this. (Am up right now thanks to a sheltie who hates thunderstorms) Name: John Livingston Home in 1880: Rock Creek, Otoe, Nebraska Age: 3 Estimated birth year: abt 1877 Birthplace: Nebraska Relation to head-of-household: Son Father's name: James Father's birthplace: Scotland Mother's name: Euphemia Mother's birthplace: British Possession (will take your word for it for now that it's Canada, but strange they don't call it Canada when they do on other people living in the same county on the same census by the same enumerator) Marital Status: Single Race: White Gender: Male Name: Euphemia Livingston Home in 1880: Rock Creek, Otoe, Nebraska Age: 29 Estimated birth year: abt 1851 Birthplace: British Possessions Relation to head-of-household: Wife Spouse's name: James Father's birthplace: Scotland Mother's birthplace: Scotland Occupation: Keeping House Marital Status: Married Race: White Gender: Female Household Members: Name Age James Livingston 53 Euphemia Livingston 29 Daniel Livingston 7 John Livingston 3 Marian Livingston 2 Meriana Livingston 2M Name: James Livingston Home in 1880: Rock Creek, Otoe, Nebraska Age: 53 Estimated birth year: abt 1827 Birthplace: Scotland Relation to head-of-household: Self (Head) Spouse's name: Euphemia Father's birthplace: Scotland Mother's birthplace: Scotland Occupation: Farmer Marital Status: Married Race: White Gender: Male From the 1870 Census: Name: James Livingston Estimated birth year: abt 1832 Age in 1870: 38 Birthplace: Scotland Home in 1870: McWilliams, Otoe, Nebraska Just as importantly, he lists that he's a US citizen. If so, he's been in the country at least 5 years. Next, I ruled out that he could be the James Livingston who was the son of Nehemiah. On the Otoe GenWeb site there's a Biographical Sketch book of prominent citizens, including a sketch of Nehemiah. In there, it's noted that his son James enlisted in the Iowa militia during the Civil War, was injured and subsequently died. So right age, right place, wrong man. I went through the 1871 Canadian census, Ontario Index (the rest haven't been indexed so you have to go to a library or order the records to search them). There's no one remotely close to Euphemia McLeod. But since she lists it as "British Possession"...I'm thinking she was born in one of the provinces that wasn't a province yet. Have to search to see when the different provinces joined the rest."

"There are no shortcuts. The only way you can learn your own family history is to research it back carefully each generation at a time."
THOMAS MACGREGOR :

James Livingstone would have been aged abt 44 when he left Scotland for America. Thought to have worked at Goldhill, Nevada before going to Rock Creek, Otoe, Nebraska where he bought land and Married Euphemia, born in Canada to Scottish parents. They had several children. James is shown in American Census as being 73 in 1900. Then there is an enigmatic entry that states that he had died in 1901, and his spouse?, Grace Ballantyne was deceased. Problem is, Grace Ballantyne is known to have died in Scotland in 1901 and James Livingstone (the same man?) died six months later. Are the records stating that James sailed back to Scotland aged 73 leaving his American wife Euphemia behind. Perhaps Euphemia was trying to get a pension from the American Government and the Government needed James' death confirmation. Perhaps there are shipping lists for the late 1900's early 1901 from America to the UK showing that James did actually sail. Perhaps there are descendants in America know real story?

seraph1818 :
"You mention that he married Euphemia, a Canadian. Well, there seem to be a few references in the Canadian records to a James LIVINGSTONE on ancestry.com , but the actual manifest is not there and I am not familiar with acquiring Canadian immigration records. Do you think he might have made a pit stop in Canada prior to entering the U.S.? Also, there is a record of a James LIVINGSTONE who seems to fit your parameters entering the U.S. in Boston and departing from Nova Scotia. The actual manifest does not mention Scotland and his occupation is listed as "mech". There is no additional info. on the actual manifest to help you out more to really figure out if it is your "James" or not. Where was Euphemia from in Canada? If it is NS than maybe this is a hit?

sothere! :

He signs a cheap oil deal with Chavez of Venezuela. Is Ken Livingstone a complete moron? What the heck is this guy thinking? Why would he sign a deal with an oppresive dictator who is systematically undoing democracy in Latin America and has an abysmal human rights record? Why would London, one of the world's richest cities, need to strike a deal for cheap oil for its disadvantaged citizens? Ken Livingstone is another example of the absurdity of socialism. Say what you will about the need for social reform or whatever. If the UK gov't wants to enact a program to help the disadvantaged, it can certainly do it without the help of Chavez. If you make a deal with the Devil you eventually have to pay.... Chavez tried this scam in the US by offering cheap oil to the poor in the northeast. Rightly, the offer was refused. It's very easy to accept a handout. It takes more character to say, "No thanks. I'll figure a way on my own." Say what you will about the need for social reform or whatever.

"You're really pushing me on this. I've been avoiding starting a web site in which people vote. They vote their opinion as to whether certain traitors are Operatives or Dupes of the Third Communist International. (AKA Ghost of the Comintern).

Livingstones are surrealistic soft rock looking pillows.

"Livingstones" are pillows that look like giant water smoothed river pebbles and rocks. Throw a few of these suckers into an empty room and you have yourself an instant kid's play room...

Documents passed to The Times prove that staff paid for by public money were told to carry out campaign work during office hours. One e-mail to the mayor’s former senior adviser on Asian affairs, Atma Singh, sent at 9.30am, explicitly asks that he write two articles in support of Mr Livingstone by noon that day.
