searching for a Thomas Grahm from Ayrshire
« on: Friday 25 May 18 22:05 BST (UK) »
I've hit a brick wall searching for the family of my 3x great grandfather Thomas Graham. The only information I have on him is his marriage record to Margaret Seed in 1810 in the parish of Ballycutler in County Down, which has Ayrshire as his place of birth. By 1841 he is living in Liverpool and working as a stonemason. He dies in 1847. Where do I go from here? I have no idea who is parents were and nothing to go on. This is a big gap on my tree, any advice would be appreciated

Have you got his death certificate from 1847? - presumably in Liverpool as this is the last place you give for his residence in 1841.

Think you have the marriage date wrong - he was shown bc.1806 on 1841 census so couldn't have married in 1810??
