I found the following in the Lowell (Mass.) Sun on 26 Apr. 1916 in a column entitled marriage intentions:
"Gavin H. Struthers, Manchester, N.H., Marrieta J. Ainsworth, Manchester, N.H., 20, clerk."
It says the marriage intentions were filed at the city clerk's office since the last were published.

Hmmm - a question mark over yet another family tree entry as quoted in reply 5 - which had no source detail or date quoted  ???

"Family tree says Gavin married Maryetta C Howard in 1915. Gavin died in Oregon 27 March 1955. Maryetta C Howard - Born Aug 1895 in Shaftsbury, Bennington, Vermont and Died July 1955 in Portland, Multnomah, Oregon. Maryetta daughter of Freeman Stratton Howard 1858 - 1929 and Flora Albia Bottum 1858 - 1930"

Looking at Census there is also a Marietta J Ainsworth born 1896 Vermont - daughter of Harley E and Lillian A Ainsworth and interestingly she had a brother Alden J Ainsworth.
The son of Gavin and Marietta was Robert Alden Struthers (mentioned in reply 7) so it looks like that is the right connection to this one.

So a good find by Shelly.

Oregon Death Index:-

Marietta J Struthers 
Death Date: July 1955.   -  Multnomah
Certificate: 12063

Perhaps another slight query - the Oregon Death Record of Gavin gives the correct date as the family tree entry BUT the spouse as Pearl  ???

Gavin H Struthers. 27 March 1955 Multnomah
Certificate: 3359  -  Spouse: Pearl

There is also a separate Oregon Death Record for Pearl K Struthers with a spouse as Gavin  ???

Pearl K Struthers. 29 March 1954 Multonomah
Certificate: 3401
Spouse: Gavin

Your most welcome.  There is no BMD Index in the USA, what is available varies Stet to State and County to County, obviously the females are more difficult to trace, if you have the exact birth date for Margaret then the SSDI Index which is available on the link below for free would probably help.

I can't find the family in Manchester, NH in 1920.  I've tried various attempts (not using surnames and/or first names).  I wonder if the family returned to Scotland for a brief time?

Wicklow/Canada       Fowley: Sligo/Canada       Furnival: Lancashire/Canada       Ibbotson: Sheffield/Canada       Lee/DeJongh: Lancashire & Cheshire       Mumford: Essex/Canada       Ovens: Ireland/Canada       Sarge: Yorkshire/Canada       Stuart: Sligo/Canada       Sullivan: Co. Clare/Canada      Vaus: Sussex/Surrey      Wakefield: Tuam or Ballinasloe, Ireland       (Surname: Originated/Place Last Lived)  (Canadians lived in Ontario)
