There's a birth of a Marion Biggerstaff registered in 1891 in the Maryhill area of Glasgow you can download this and you should get the name of her parents including her mothers maiden name, where and when they were married

1901 census in Maryhill has parents Adam, b Ayr c1856  and Marion, b Prestwich c1859

Marion's parents were Adam and Marion Smith married 1878 in Partick. Marions birth from Family Search  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XTXB-L3X
Adam's parents look to be Samuel and Jessie McCrorie
Adams birth also from Family Search https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XYYG-1MX
A family tree on Family search has a marriage for Samuel and Jessie in Ayrshire in 1853 but nothing coming up on Scotlands People
found the marriage it is indexed under Bickerstaff

Hi everyone I must apologise about some of the dates. I have revised them below:-

Robert Reid Bell b 1893 d 1962
Marion Steele b 1892

I don't know if this helps any.

Regards

PS someone said if second cousin is still alive then her name has to be removed, can i ask why?

Hi Paul,

It is against RootsChat rules to publish information on living folk, often the details given can be security questions in banking etc full name, date of birth mother maiden name etc You are best to be a little more general " M Brown born in the 1960's"

Regards

Sarah

1901 census in Maryhill has parents Adam, b Ayr c1856  and Marion, b Prestwich c1859

Marion's birthplace was likely to have been Prestwick, next town to Ayr, rather than Prestwich, which is in Lancashire, England. Often confused.
