Hi Folks,

I'm looking for anyone who has either of these in their tree?

I have my relative David Bremner Mellon (1908 -1914) b 24 Charles Street, St. Andrew, Dundee
Parents John Mellon & Margaret McFalls married 1907 Dundee
I have their marriage & 1911 census
John was b 1880 St. Mary, Dundee & Margaret c1888 Dundee

Strangely this is either a coincidence or a relative?...

David Bremner Connelly (1907 - 1907) 49 Princes Street, St. Andrew, Dundee
Parents David Bremner Connelly & Mary Christie Millar married 1902 Dundee
I don't have the marriage nor the 1911 census!

David Bremner Mellon is a distant relative but I haven't established where the 'Bremner' name fits?
The MC of his parents John Mellon & Margaret McFalls gives Margaret's mother as Mary Donnelly as does Margaret's DC both very clearly!

I would be interested if anyone knows whether there was a connection with both David Bremners  as they were all in the same area ???

Annie (Curious)  :D

Added...I forgot to mention, there were many people with the middle name of Bremner & wondered if there was someone of significance this name may have been chosen for?
