28 Glen Gardens, Callander
« on: Wednesday 08 March 17 09:13 GMT (UK) »
Does anyone happen to know whether this address was a residential home in 1977?

James Macdonald, merchant seaman, married Margaret Marjorie Mougg in Glasgow on 29 November 1951. He was a widower, aged 67, and she was a spinster, aged 42. His parents are named as John Macdonald, shepherd, and Mary McCorquodale. She was the daughter of Margaret Marjory Durnan, widow of David Moug.

James Macdonald is listed in the valuation roll at 4 Leighton Place, Callander until 1955/6, and both he and Mrs Marjorie Macdonald are listed there in the electoral register until 1955/6. James died on 7 August 1955 at 4 Leighton Place, aged 73. His parents are listed as John Macdonald, shepherd, and Mary Macaulay, and his wife's name as Marjorie Douglas. The informant is his son.

Mrs Marjorie MacDonald was listed in the valuation roll and in the electoral register at 4 Leighton Place from 1956/7 until 1961/2, after which she disappears.

Margaret Marjory Moug, widow of James Macdonald, died at 28 Glen Gardens, Callander on 8 April 1977. Her death was registered by her son, ? Macdonald (was he in fact her stepson?). Allowing for creative spelling, he got her details and parentage right.

So is the Marjorie Macdonald who disappears in 1962 the same one who turns up in 1977? And if so why is she not listed in the Electoral Register in Callander after 1962? Did she move away and come back 15 years later, or was she taken into care at the age of 53?

Am I safe to deduce that this is indeed one and the same person?

Looking at google maps, it currently looks to be very much a housing estate, and likely was the same in the 1970s, judging by the house styles. Panning around the street, I can't really imagine that it would have been the address of a Residential/Care Home.

Glen Gardens is a housing estate in Callander.
I work in Callander, went to high school etc there and it has always been houses.
There are some small bungalows near Glen Gardens that are council owned and used more for elderly residents but come under a different street name .

Thanks. Appreciated, and my apologies for being slow to acknowledge.

I am pretty sure the 'son' who registered her death in 1977 must have been a stepson. I'll PM you his name, as he could still be alive.

This was not a residential home it was Marjorie home address.  She was my Grand Mother.   She moved from Leighton place to Glen gardens and the person reporting her death was her son Ian MacDonald who also lived at 28 Glen Gardens.
My mother was Finella MacDonald.  If you need more info let me know.

Thank you, Kjell2411.

I see that this is your first post. Once you have made two more posts to the forum I will be able to contact you by personal message with a view to exchanging notes. I have quite a bit of information about Marjorie that might be of interest to you.
