An online tree seems to have a Williamina Stewart, daughter of James Stewart and Elspeth Young, marrying in Glasgow on 30th November 1908, to a Donald Cameron Fulton. The marriage was a second one for Donald, and, if same Williamina (based on her parents names), obviously her second too. The certificate should confirm if she was widowed.

Update:

a quick check of the free index and the marriage (St Rollox District) is indeed indexed under Williamina Stewart and Williamina Fraser.

Hi ,

There is a death for a Charles Simon Fraser age 80 , 1973 Dumbarton , 505/ 322.

Could he be the son aged 7 on the 1901 Census ?

Hmmm. No evidence of a marriage of Frederick Augustus Fraser to Margaret in Scotland, England or Wales. There are two deaths of Frederick Augustus Fraser in Scotland. One aged 0, and one in 1866.

So neither of those can be the father of Charles Simon Fraser, who was aged 25 in 1901. Or was he? If he was 25 in 1901, he would have been about 17 in 1892. That is exceptionally young for a man to marry.

How old does Charles' marriage certificate say he was? What was his occupation?

He could. There is a birth of Charles Simon Fraser in Dundee in 1893.

I have already asked what were the birthplaces of all the family according to the 1901 census? At least two people have looked at that census, and must therefore have that information.

I know nothing about Alice's siblings but if Williamina married a Fulton and died in Dumbarton and Charles Fraser died in Dumbarton it is possible.
Charles was 19 when he married in 1892 and his father Frederick was a baker, Charles was a Jute Factory worker

I'm amazed at the amount of information you have all furnished me with in such a short time.  I am actually a member of the friends of Dundee archive and do volunteer indexing every week on a Tuesday, I will be asking questions there next week to see if I can shed some light on why Alice was boarded out.  I wish I knew where you get all of your information, Thank you all
