Angus (Forfarshire) / nellie/helen black
« on: Saturday 16 April 16 15:16 BST (UK)  »
Agnes Shepherd died on 13.10.1915 at Arbroath.  Her death was registered by her sister Nellie Black who was an 'inmate' on the certificate.
Nellie /Helen had married David Black, a vans man, from Kircaldy on 6.4.1914. The marriage was at Arbroath.
I can't find a death certificate for this Nellie/Helen Black on Scotlandspeople.
If I can find the certificate it might give me some information as to what became of her.

on the death certificate of George Fordyce on 26.3.1963 at west calder he is the WIDOWER of Marjory Allan Leishman.
Marjory's death certificate on 21.5.1940 at west calder has 1st. married to John Denholm & 2nd. to George Fordyce.
I found a marriage on 31.12.1926 at Portobello between Marjory & John Denholm.
after much searching I can't find the death of John Denholm or a marriage between George Fordyce & Marjory.
I wonder if they actually married.

I have been searching on scotlands people & found my aunt, Henrietta nisbet married on 17.4.1936. she married john smith, a ploughman.
sadly she died on 29.5.1936 at the royal infirmary, Edinburgh.
I viewed the RCE - died from injuries received by being rundown by a motor car. it doesn't give any other information.
although she died in Edinburgh her home address was newside cottage, Carmichael, Lanarkshire.
could someone suggest where I might find out more about the accident ?
