Alice married Peter McCartney on 20th Feb 1867 at St. Marys Chapel, Glasgow.  Looks like they emigrated to America and I can see 2 sons William Franklin MacCartney born on 12 sept 1876 at Providence, Rhode Island and John M McCartney born around 1870, also 2 daughters Annie MaCartney born around 1868 and Mary A McCartney born 25 Dec 1872.  Sorry thats all I have.

The mother was Margaret Lavery (Armstrong) born in 1811 in Ireland. The sisters were Mary Jane (25), Elisabeth (23), Alice (21), Catherine (19), and Ann (16). They had two young uns living with them: Catherine Dowd (10), a border who was born in Edinburgh, and Catherine Lavery 8 who was probably one of the older women's illegitimate daughter.
