Attempting to confirm a marriage
« on: Thursday 02 November 17 20:19 GMT (UK) »
Greetings all -

I am attempting to confirm a second marriage for my 2X great grandfather James ADAM in Glasgow. I have reason to believe he married a Catherine (sp?) BRYSON in the District of Blythswood on 23 September 1886. He would have been about 45 years old and she was a few years younger. Her mothers maiden name may have been CAMERON.

As always any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

there is an entry on ScotlandsPeople for this couple, married in Blythswood, 1886. I don't have any credits at the moment, but you could have a look to confirm as it will give more details

Thank you for your quick response to my request for information about my 2x great grandfather. It is much appreciated. I know he had sons named John and William from his first marriage so this is probably him. Hopefully your lead will assist me in learning about him and his life.
