Francis HARKNESS born 1811 GRETNA
« on: Saturday 02 September 17 16:59 BST (UK) »
Wondered if someone could verify my tree please
I have Francis Harkness born 1811 in Gretna and died 1891 in Middlebie. On his death certificate it states his parents as John Harkness...farmer...and Janet Clarke. Francis was a tailor and lived in Middlebie. The only Francis I can find in 1841 census is with a George and Agnes Harkness in Langholm Dumfriesshire.....George also a tailor
I can't find anything on Francis parents....no marriage certificate for Francis...he married Janet Adamson.
Do I have the correct grandparents for Francis or am I jumping to conclusions
Any help would be gratefully received
Many thanks
Karen

PS someone else has a Francis Harkness but with different parents and also a tailor
