John Napier Alexander
« on: Saturday 20 January 18 10:12 GMT (UK) »
Hello, I have been researching my grandfathers family who was Alfred Alexander born 1903 in Peterhead. He had eight siblings so I am trying to find them all and find out more about my grandfather.
He had a brother John Napier Alexander born in Peterhead 1893 July 20th to Charles and Mary Alexander (Lovie). I trace him to Stornoway where my great uncle Charles Alexander lived.
My great uncle John Napier Alexander marries Isabella Annie Maciver they are both 43 years old and married at 3 Keith street Stornoway.
I have tried to find out what happened to them but I cannot find a death certificate I know that John was a cooper and his wife a Fishworker, they might have worked for his brother Charles who had his own business in the fish industry and also a transport firm of lorries in those days 1936.
Can someone help me here I have searched for there death certificates I cannot find children but they were aged 43 when they married. Please can you help?
Kind Regards Annie

There is a death registered in Stornoway 1960:

Annie Isabella, surname ALEXANDER or MACIVER  age 66.

This indicates a YoB of about 1894.

Were they said to be bachelor & spinster on their 1936 marriage lines?

Cheers
