Midlothian / Jean Chalmers born 1802 Currie
« on: Tuesday 20 December 16 18:15 GMT (UK)  »
Evening All

I am hoping someone can help me establish whether Jean Chalmers married Joseph Gourlay in 1831 Currie is my Jean (daughter of Robert and Janet). I do not seem able to find a death for either Joseph or Jean on SP. I am wondering if they moved over seas. If I can establish parentage it would be most helpful.

Good Evening

I am looking into a new line

Thomas Adamson born 1847 , son of Thomas Adamson and Janet Gould.

Thomas was married twice, firstly to Elizabeth McPherson, who was illegitimate, reputed father - Duncan McPherson and mother Margaret McLuille (?) afterwards Fotheringham. Elizabeth died June 6th 1890 aged 44 years Gardeners Land Dunfermline. His second wife Elizabeth Anderson daughter of Henry Anderson and Mary Moyes. Thomas was her second husband, her first being a John Hepburn an Insurance Agent. Elizabeth died September 29th 1906 at the Cottage Hospital Dunfermline.

I am hoping that some one could help with the census details and hopefully lead to children for both marriages, that's if there are any, and with information regarding parents and other marriages.

Many Thanks in advance.
