Tell us her name, and all the other details and dates you have about her (and her parents), so we can have a look!

You were told on your other thread that she was born prior to her parent's marrying.

Did you follow up on the help that you were already given ?

hi yeah myself and my second cousin who also has been searching cannot find anything on her he thinks she might have been adopted as she would have been 9 when they got married however he was a widower when he got married that means she may have been his child but been adopted by maggie mcgilvary. i just dont know where to look and how to start looking into that.

There is also the option that she was Maggie's daughter and that Alexander adopted her.

Did you look for them on the 1911 census using all the variations ?
