Hi,
I just found this on roots chat and I am related to the Chalmers/Smith family. On the 1881 census it states that Mary Sutherland was their niece. Hope this helps.

Hello Becky

Pleased to hear from a Chalmers researcher, I am slowly untangling the various names and connections.

Hi,

I did look into Mary Sutherland and she was the daughter and not the niece so it was from a second marriage. It is good that I found this site so that I could make that correction.

Yes it is frustrating trying to find Robert Sutherland's death on the GRO's. It could be it was indexed wrong. I have their marriage record in 1865 and his birth is on there b. 1835 to James Sutherland and Mary McKay.  If they did not divorce then he had to have died after his two children were born and Margaret remarried which would be between 1868 and 1871 and he would have been 33 or 36 yrs old. I will keep trying to find him.

Silly question, probably. I assume you have ruled out the Robert Sutherland who died in Montrose in 1871 aged 35?

Hello Forfarian,
I couldn't even find the death you have mentioned, will have another go and see if it's him.

Becky
I have the marriage certificate between Margaret and James dated 25th October 1871 - happy to share. I believe Margaret Smith Sutherland died aged 2 1867 Bathgate.

Hallo Forfarian and Moo,

I was wondering about that one and wondered why he would have died in Montrose and his wife marrying in the same year but I finally downloaded it from GRO's and he was in an asylum with paralysis for 3 years. It does not give a wife or parents but said he was from Latheron and that is where they came from. I can send this to you. I also have the death of Margaret Wight if you would care to have it. I have the marriage of Robert and Margaret as well. I assume I can do an attachment.
