John Pillans Borthwick was born on 6 December 1839 (not 1939) in Edinburgh, Scotland. He died in Ontario, San Bernardino County, California, USA, on 9 April 1908.
His daughter, Isabel, was his child by his second wife, Elisabeth White. Isabel was born on 27 January 1878 in Wilkes-Barre, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, USA. She married Harold French on 3 October 1901 in San Francisco, California. She died in Oakland, Alameda County, California, on 16 September 1968.
Isabel’s mother, Elisabeth White Borthwick, died before the 1900 census was taken in the United States but I have not yet found her date and place of death.
Hi James! I’ve really been enjoying your site very much and want to tell you again that you are welcome to share in any of the info and pictures on my website. I’m always finding new cousins out there on the flimsy branches of my Phelan / Youst tree … it’s usually “not” the ones I’m searching for, but always a treasure when I find nonetheless! When I saw your post on Bernice Phelan being on the US Olympic Swim Team in the 1930’s, that of course spurred me on to research more and found a picture – funny how we genealogist/family keepers feed off each other!!! 🙂 https://keeperofthefamily.com/stories/bernice-phelan/
