Catherine Spence Paul was born 29/3/1884 in Greenock, Renfrewshire, dau. of John Paul and Maria Paul, nee Gracie.

Just to complicate things John Farr himself had married in 1896 a Catherine Spence - she later stated she was bc.1872 but she was in fact born 10/11/1869 Tradeston, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, dau. of John Spence and Mary nee McGuire (the parents stated on marriage certificate).

That seems to disprove the idea that Catherine Spence Paul had something to do with Catherine Spence who later married John Farr then. I wondered if Catherine Spence or Farr might have been the mother of Catherine Spence Paul, but it's clear from that new information that she isn't.

You must have used quite a few credits looking all this up, Annette7 :)

I did indeed, Forfarian!   Just don't like mysteries plus Spence was my mothers name so might have been a connection somewhere (but there isn't).

Wow, thank you all for your help. Sorry, I'm still kind of new at this - started a while back and then gave up, just starting to try piece together the family tree again now. Appreciate all the help 😊 you have given me some ideas on what to look for next time too 👍🏻
