Lanarkshire / Re: Tracing Thomas McCabe's grave in Glasgow

      Alice, as you said, was living at 6 Logie Street.      She is there on the Glasgow Electoral Registers under the name Mrs Alice Drain in 1929-30.       In the same close (assuming it is a tenement by the number of people with the same address), there is a James McCabe and a Thomas McCabe.      ...I presume James and Thomas McCabe are her sons?

     (Not very helpful information, I know, but I thought I'd pass it on anyway.)       

Lanarkshire / Re: Shettleston death in 1912 - where buried?

     Gosh!!!      Somebody remembers Uncles.      They changed their name to Scofisco and then closed down around 1978.      We were all made redundant.       What a place that was!    I loved it though!

            I used to work in a fish factory next to a bottle works in Shettleston, away back in the 1970's.        It was in Old Shettleston Road, which is parallel to Shettleston's busiest street, which is Shettleston Road.    Vesalius Street is one of the side roads running off Shettleston Road,  and isn't far from the Bottle Factory.       I am not sure if it still exists.      I was in its canteen once.

       In fact, Vasalius Street runs from Shettleston Road to Old Shettleston Road

     Regarding the reference to 6 McAlpine Street, William Alexander McDowall is living there in 1904.
He is an Engineer.           

Lanarkshire / Re: 1841 or 1851 Searching by an address.

      I was trying an 1851 Census search for Andrew Pollock and noticed something that might or might not interest you.

      Go to SEARCH on Anc...try and click Census & Electoral rolls.     
      Click 1851 UK census on right
      Stroll down and click 1851 Scotland Census
      Type in Andrew Pollock
      Birth: 1829
      Click Search
      ......Click entry at top
      An Andrew Pollock comes up as a Calico Printer, and he is with a McAllister family.
      On right is a list of suggestions
      Scroll down and find "Web: Scotland Sheriff Court Paternity Decrees
      Andrew Pollock -- "formerley an Ironstone Carter."     A McAllister child was born.
      Click: Go to Website.
      Open Website
      The McAllister child was born 7 March 1849.

       It is complicated but there is more information amongst those suggestions to the right of the census.


Lanarkshire / Re: 1841 or 1851 Searching by an address.

1841 census, Main St, Airdrie
Andrew Pollock, 40
Elizabeth, 35
Marion, 12
Andrew, 12
Mgt, 7
James, 5
Eliz, 2
Marion, 60

Does this look like the family?      Perhaps the census was taken at Main St, while the Grocer's shop was at Stirling St.       Stirling St, is still there in Airdrie.       

Buteshire / Re: McAloons of Rothesay
« on: Saturday 29 December 18 07:41 GMT (UK)  »
     .... ....For instance, in 2006 there is a McAloon, living at Rothesay, Bute.     

      On the other hand, away back on the 1901 census, there is a Sarah McAloon, aged 69, a Fish Seller, born Ireland, living at 32 Bridge St, Rothesay.     

        And further back, in 1891, at Bridge St again, there is a Sarah McAloon, 62, Retired Hawker, living with James S McAloon, 21, Telegraph Clerk.
