Sorry could not reply earlier, Dawn, a bit of a family emergency. My enquiry was about Alexander Logan/Wilson, not about his living family. is that an acceptable query on here? I really was not aware of any restrictions ,so, apologise if my enquiry does not fit the remit of this forum

Your topic title and opening post specifically include the names of a potentially living person.

I have amended all the posts accordingly.

Given that RBT Wilson was still in Prestonpans at the time of his marriage, it would appear that the family lived there for an extended period.I thought therefore that the following death might be of relevance. It is for an Alexander Wilson who died in Prestonpans in 1963 age 71 ( giving a year of birth around 1891) and, as you can see,  his wife was called Marion Howie Wilson
Alexander Wilson married Marion Wilson in 1917 in Prestonpans. Marriage certificate confirms parents for Alexander as William Wilson and Agnes Harrison. Marions parents are Henry Wilson and Jessie Wilson nee Howie. The family can be found in Prestonpans in 1901 and this shows that Marion was born in Cowdenbeath ( there is a matching birth in Beath). The marriage certificate gives an address in Shettleston for Alexander and indicates he was a soldier in the Kings Own Scottish Borderers.
Still struggling to find any more information on William Wilson and Agnes Harrison though there is a possible marriage in Kirkliston in 1887.

Only likely death I can find for an Agnes Harrison or Wilson is for Agnes Lockie Wilson who died in Coatbridge, Lanarkshire in 1941 age 74 ( also listed as Agnes Lockei Harrison on same reg number). Agnes Lockie Harrison was born in Kirkliston, West Lothian in 1866 and is probably the Agnes Harrison who married William Wilson in Kirkliston in 1887. The family are in Shotts, Lanarkshire in 1901 and among the children is a son Alexander age 9 ( so born around 1891) born Newbridge, West Lothian. Probable matching birth on SP - Alexander Wilson in Kirkliston in 1891.

Thanks so much, Isobel, this looks really promising. Can you tell me where you found the certificates, please. They seem to be eluding me.
