If Jane's birth was slightly earlier than her death record then there is a birth on Scotlands People of a Jane Swan b 1909 Fauldhouse

Thank you so much.

I had got a couple of stray hints that there might be a Irish Connection.

Could not find the parebts births in Scotland.

Jane must have understated her age,  Also could not find her divorce from a Williamson,prior to her marriage in,1946.

Do you have the David and Maggie's marriage cert in Shotts in 1887 which should l list their parents

I can't see divorces on Scotlands People :-\

Hi Kay.
Thank you for SP I now have Jane's Birth at ???? Row, District of Fauldhouse on May 16 1909.
her son  reported her birth as 16 April 1912 on her death record.
Yes I have David & Maggie's marriage record from Aug 10 th 1887 on the tenth of August at 48 Benhar, HartHil,l County of Lanark

Davis SWAN who used his Mark parents were William SWAN Farmer Alive and Agnes McLEAN
also Alive.   Maggie's parents were Samuel STRACHAN Coal Miner Alive and Mary McLEAN alive.
when she registered Jane's birth in 1909 she was called Margaret she also reported that her
marriage was on the 8 th of August not the Tenth.
