The above ANNIE B. PAUL died 18th May 1956 aged 81 years

Blue text - dates from gravestone

This Annie B. Paul might not be the correct one of course!!   

If you 'google' Killearn and Kilmaronock, you'll see that although they're in different Counties, they're not really that far apart.

I know the answer to this one. 

Robert Paul was born 2 Dec 1871 and died 19 Oct 1895. He did not marry Maggie Young but she had his child just before he died.  The family story was that they did not marry before the child was born because he died in the accident. However the dates don't quite back this up.

Their child was born Robert Paul Young on 11 Oct 1895 in Eaglesham.  Margaret Young then married James Stewart in 1900.  The child Robert took the surname Stewart.  Robert married Jeanie Young in 1931.  Robert owned a garage at Dumbuck near Dumbarton. Robert and Jeanie had a son John born in 1939. He was better known as Jackie Stewart, former Formula 1 World Champion.

Hi Ev,

This is James Norval Paul, thanks for your reply, yes Jackie Stewart was Olympic Standard Clay Pigeon Shot, he was chosen for the Olympics, however he went racing instead and we all know what the result of that. I have spent many happy days at the Jackie Stewart Clay Pigeon Centre at Gleneagles.

I am new to Ancestry, having much fun tracing the family, starting with the Pauls, the Scots Guards historical centre in London have been superb at tracing the WW1 history of my grandfather, James Norval Paul, I have detailed history of his activities on the battle field. I will be visiting Killearn shortly to meet members of our family.

James

Hello James, my interest is more in Killearn, 99% of Morrisons in Killearn in 1840's to 1880's are my family.

I do have a small connection to an Alexander Paul (born c. 1849 in Killearn), he married Margaret Pollock Graham on 25th January 1881. Their daughter would have been my 2C3R.

Alexander (in case you don't have this) son of John Paul and Elizabeth King, died 8th July 1903 at 260, Garscube Road, Glasgow of Apoplexia and Secondary Paralysis.   It is quite a sad story ... his wife Margaret (my 1C4R) died 1 year and 2 days after their marriage of an embolism following the birth of their daughter, Mary Paul (born 16th January 1882).  He had small Mary's birth certificate altered and changed her name to Maggie Mary Paul.

Alexander never remarried after the death of Margaret. I am not sure what happened to Maggie Mary afterwards but I do know that she was included in the will of her great grandfather, Thomas Meikle who died in 1890 - he left her 19 pounds and 19 shillings sterling - "to the little daughter of my grand-daughter Margaret Graham in the event of her surviving at my decease".

I have also another Paul connection - a Margaret Ann Paul (daughter of George Paul and Margaret McKinley) married Robert Scott of Killearn in 1895. Robert was my 1C3R, I have a suspicion - unchecked - that Margaret McKinley was also connected to me.

Funnily enough this twice in the last week that these Pauls (my connections) have come up, I will check the details and let you know if the other person.

regards,
