Hello! This is an old thread but I am posting here to say thank you for the work you have done so far. I am actually Walter Allison's great great granddaughter--Mary Elizabeth, his daughter, was my great grandmother. I am searching for information on Walter's wife, my great great grandmother, Jane Allison. Looking for her maiden name to be specific. Records show she was born in Ireland, but this is all I can find so far.

Also -- I see you are an ancestor of Walter Allison's as well! Your profile picture Alexander Allison... Who was he in relation to Walter? I can't blow up the picture to see the details, but if you have a better quality image of that picture, I would sure love to see it. Thank you!  :)

Hello!

The walter in this threat is cousins with my great great grandfather who is also called Walter and the man in the photo Alexander is his son and my great grandpa. my walter was the son of william and your walter was the son of john and william and john were the son of Walter which then makes us 5th cousins :) im still in Glasgow, well just outside and Alexanders daughter (my gran) and son are still living but he lives in Perth. The William you commented on the other thread about is also your Walters cousin but he is my walters half brother because they have different mothers so hes my great great great uncle

Thanks, Gary! This is great information! If you have a high res pic of Alexander (your avatar pic) you could PM me, I would love to see it. Tried to blow this one up but its quite blurry. I am in the US, Mary Elizabeth married John Price from Wales and they moved to the US (Michigan) in 1921.

Thank you! When I go to the link www.gro.gov.uk/ I do not see any place to register or search online. Could it be because I am in the US? If you would be able to list the other children along with Mary Elizabeth who have the same mother that would be amazing and confirm that this is the correct Jane Torrence (Allison).
