Lanarkshire / Mary Crossan Help
« on: Wednesday 18 May 22 11:33 BST (UK)  »
I wonder if anyone can help.  Mary Crossan is my ggrandmother born abt 1845-47 depending on what site you use.  Her parents were James and Rose Crossan married in 1834 in Glasgow.  They moved about a lot from Glasgow to Edinburgh to Old Monkland then finally Bathgate.  They had many children who were baptised in these areas.   Mary is the only one I can't find and to make matters worse their name is mis-spelt in various forms.  All the censuses put Mary's birth in Old Monkland.  I've checked all areas surrounding Coatbridge/ Old Monkland and came up with nothing.  It would be helpful if any one can point me in the right direction as to find her.   Thanks

Renfrewshire / Margaret Toy

Hi all I hope you can help me with my inquiry.  I'm looking for the follwing information, my g-g aunt Margaret Toy was born in 1878 Airdrie, Lanarkshire.  I've discovered bits and pieces suggests that she married and died some where in Renfrewshire.  I would like to know who she married and when she died ?  I vaguely remember seeing some information that she worked on a farm in the county.



Daniel was born in Airdrie, Lanarkshire.  He tried to join the infantry but was rejected as being not up to standard.  So joined RASC/ Labour Corps.  He was my great grandmother's older brother.  We will always remember him.  He was laid to rest in Lembert Road Cemetery Thessilonika, Greece.

Please accept my apoligies if I'd asked for this information before as I take a periodic revision of my tree.
I'm looking for information on Robert Taylor, no birth information and his parents but I've got his marriage 8th April 1791 to Christina Miller in Latheron.

The information I require is his birth date, his parents names and any children of his marriage.

Kent Lookup Requests / Need help please
« on: Friday 24 August 12 10:09 BST (UK)  »
Hi, I'm looking for Alfred Cornell.  The reason is, I've tried all different variations of his surname.  All I have so far is he married Amelia Scarterfield 15 April 1866.  His surname at the time was Cornwall.  Amelia re-married in Nov 1873, to a Richard Pope, here's where I can't find anything,  Amelia had a daughter Sarah in Jul-Sep quarter in 1871, so as you can see there is a period of just 2yrs between the birth and marriage.  Where is Alfred ?

On her marriage certificate she has put herself down as a widow, former name Cornwall.

I hoped I've explained my problem.

Thanks. ???
