Title: James Livingstone and Jane Mckay marr 1896 Alloa
Post by: Big-toshie on Friday 20 April 12 14:04 BST (UK)
Dear all,
I'm doing a tree for friend and has hit a very big wall on Scotlandspeople. What I have:

Marriage 17/11/1896 Alloa (In Roman Catholic Church)
James Livingstone, Widower, Hawker,  aged 32
to
Jane McKay, Spinster, aged 27

James Parents - Donald Livingstone (Exciseman) and Alice Mackenzie
Janes Parents - Daniel McKay (Traveller) and Catherine McManus

I have tried and failed to identify birth places of James and Jane, marriages of parents or parents birth places. 
Any leads would be most welcome.  There must be something somewhere!
