Hi Ness

Did Mary and James die in Scotland?  They both show in the 1851 census as born in Falkirk but there are a number of possibilities on the OPRs for their births in Falkirk (or their births may not show on the OPRs). I can't see them on later Scottish censuses. Their last child Alexander shows as born in 1856 in Falkirk (from IGI).

Couldn't find a death for Mary when I looked last night, Monica  :-\

Maybe they emigrated

Only bpt that I could find for Mary was:

20 Feb 1819 Falkirk - daughter of Andrew Dawson and Janet Robert.  I note that they had a Janet but no Andrew  :-\

The only James Crawford, coming up as b. Stirlingshire around that time is:

28 July 1813, Airth.  Parents - George Crawford and Christian Gardiner

Airth is not far from Falkirk and adjacent to St Ninians


I have already given a possible for Mary in my previous posting.

Their daughters  Janet and Christian fit the naming convention but it is puzzling to find no George or Andrew amongst their children  :-\
