Robert/John Margaret/ Janet; cant work it out ?
« on: Thursday 01 September 11 20:03 BST (UK) »
I so need help to identify the parents of Mary Anderson ??? I’m going round in circles. ::)
 This is what I no;

She was born Mary Anderson (Alias; Molly Anderson) 1822/23 Nesting .On the birth certificate her fathers name is  John Anderson   Robert Anderson.
She married in Tingwall, Whiteness&  Weisdale  3rd Dec 1846 to Thomas Johnson (seaman)Parents names for Mary are John Anderson  and Margaret Tait .
She died in Lerwick 1871 Mary Johnson (Anderson) Parents name John Anderson & Janet Sutherland.

I'v tried to find a marriage between John & Margaret also John & Janet with no luck.
Looking through the census but still nothing  :(


Any advice/help would be appreciated  :)
