Hi bravaal,

fantastic info and based on the 1901 census street index, seems to be a very plausible match.

Thanks so much for taking the time to reply.

Thanks for all replies.  I kind of suspected I might not be able to track it down directly as I have had a look at the NLS maps for the area.

I do know that his son, George, was born in 1872 in Penders Row or Lane  (which I believe to have been on Buchanan Street, approx Nr 45) and his wife, Jane, died on Longlee in 1922 which was just off Buchanan Street, so perhaps it was somewhere in that area.

Thanks again for all replies, it's greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

I wonder if someone can shed light on where Stevenson Place, Baillieston might have been in 1899?

My GGF, Arthur Hoggan, died there in 1899 and all efforts to work out where it may have been have drawn a blank.

He was listed on the Death Certificate as being a Newspaper Correspondent and any info on that would be a huge help as well.

Many thanks in advance,

Hi Deb,

Nice to make contact with long lost cousins...

Thanks for the info thus far, I'll send my email address via PM shortly.  My grandmother was Annie Anderson, who was the youngest of six.

Mary, 1890-1974
Jeanie (1893-)
Andrew (1896-1918)
Hannah (1902-)
George (1903- )
Annie (1910-1991)

Obviously, none of her other brothers and sisters are alive, but I don't have full information as to dates, etc yet.

I'll send that email address shortly with any other info I can about the remainder of the family.  I can't post any of it here as my immediate family are all still alive and I have no permission to share any of that information publicly. 

Thanks again, take care.

Hi all, new to the list.

I am researching the Gallachers in Duntocher.  John Gallacher (b. 1837, Ireland) was my GG Grandfather and Mary Morrow (b. 1843, Ireland) my GG Grandmother.

I have got their marriage document, both death registrations and the birth certificate for their daughter Fanny (my G Grandmother) which confirms the marriage details, all from Scotlands People

The problem I have is with Mary's death certificate.

On all other documents I have John working as a labourer of some sort, but on Mary's death certificate he is listed as a Coal Merchant

On her death certificate, however, her father is listed as William whereas on her marriage certificate he is given as James.  Their is also a discrepancy about her mothers maiden name (death cert has it as Doughall and marriage has it has McDowall), but I am happy to put that down to pronunciation and potential illiteracy (and therefore being unable to spell).

That said, on her death certificate her maiden name is given as Morrow, the death was registered by son Frank (Francis) and they appear to live in New Street.

The 3 positive matches seem to indicate she is the correct Mary (the maiden surname especially), but even allowing for illiteracy, spelling and accent issues, the issue of her father's name is throwing me as is husband John's profession.

Hopefully, I haven't lost everyone here, but was hopeful someone might be able to shed light on this or any other Mary Gallacher (Morrow), or the rest of the family for that matter.

I do have a query regarding the Police Station in Duntocher in 1890's but will create a new post for that as it isn't relevant here. 

Thanks in advance for any and all replies.
