Hi, wonder if you can help.  I am looking for the grave of Janet Hall/ William Smellie (d.1875) and Jane Allan - they are buried together.   I just can't remember which graveyard in Motherwell they are in.  I was sent photos of the grave a few years ago but have since lost them. Thank you.  Elaine

Hi there,
      I wonder if there would be any mention of the Armit family among the graves. In particular Thomas 1903 and Christina 1932 and their children Thomas Mary and Christina who died 1880.
    Thank you for you help.
Kind Regards
mariac

Hi Elmca, so sorry for the delay in answering, I was away for New Year.
William & Janet are buried in the old parish burial ground of Dalziel, it was the original churchyard and was still used by old Motherwell families who had plots there, up until the early 1960s.
The headstone has the following information (not necessarily in the order that it appears on the stone).

1868. Janet Hall died 20th March 1867 aged 29 years, wife of William Smillie. William Smillie died 14th October 1875 aged 38 years. His 2nd wife Jane Allen died 24th February 1903 aged 68 years.

This burial ground is situated near to Barons Haugh, at the end of Manse Road, Motherwell. The Victorians called in the Manse Burial Ground and it has recently been mistakenly called St Patrick's Burial Ground.

Gibbons, Weldon - Co Mayo.

Thank you Lodger, I really appreciate that information.  I had the name 'St Patrick's' in my head and that will be why!  Do you know if it's easy enough to  get into this graveyard?  Thanks again, Elaine

Elaine, It's not easy at all and I wouldn't even try to go there until the spring or summer. Contact me later on in the year.

I see there are many knowledgeable researchers of Cambusnethan families so I am hoping someone can help me with a few families from this area:

Alexander Waddell born in Edinburgh but died 1916 Cambusnethan  (father Archibald Douglas Waddell - mother Elizabeth Rymer) unable to find death details for either of his parents.

Alexander was married to Margaret Russell Bonner (Bonar) who was born 1836 in Shotts (father James Bonar died Calderhead 1867 - mother Frances Topping died Calderhead 1885). Margaret doesn't appear on the 1881 census with the rest of the family so no idea of her death details.

Rachel Kent (father Hugh Kent and mother Christina Marshall)  married William McConnell on 30 May 1847 at Shotts, Lanarkshire but their children were born in Cambusnethan. Rachel died before 1901 census but can find no details.

Also trying to find out about the death of Rachel Kent's and William McConnell's son Robert born 03 Mar 1861 in Cambusnethan. He married Agnes Topping Waddell (daughter of Alexander Waddell and Margaret Russell Bonar/Bonner).
They had four children - but at some stage separated. Agnes went to Australia in the early 1920s to join her older daughter (Margaret Bonner McConnell)  with 2 of her  children (Rachel Kent McConnell and Alexander Waddell McConnell). Her other son (William) followed them in the 1930s. Complete mystery as to what happened to Robert - only info is that Agnes was listed as a widow on her death certificate in 1955. Any information or advice on how to discover what happened to Robert McConnell would be gratefully accepted as the family has been trying to find this out for years???

Thank you,
Jen
