McGuffie
« on: Monday 23 July 18 18:44 BST (UK) »
Hello I am looking for anything on Margaret McGuffie, she was born 1835,Glasserton to Jane McCubbin, I have Margaret on the 1841 Census still at Glasserton, also 1851 and 1861 all at Glasserton, I have looked for a death or marriage no luck with that, I even dropped the Mc in her surname, I think she has disappeared.
so any help would be great.
thank you

Have you already ruled out the 1863 marriage on SP to Joseph Thompson?

She is not the 1872 marriage in Wigtown to William Gass.

Age out on this  :-\

MCGUFFOG MARGARET 20
MCCUBBING (mmn)
1861
885/ 14 Glasserton

If, the '0' has been mistranscribed & should be a '6' this would make the birth year c1835 i.e. a better fit?

You could compare the occupation from the 1861 census to that given on the death & hopefully it matches?

Was Margaret's mother alive/deceased in 1861?

This should be confirmed either way on the death?
