Stirlingshire / Re: Wilson of Larbert
« on: Wednesday 28 October 09 11:42 GMT (UK)  »
I don't find an Alexander Paterson that matches your criteria; however, looking up the extracted parish records in I did find a likely candidate for his wife.  jean Ross was b 25 Apr 1815 and christened  5 days later in Dollar, Clackmannan, the daughter of John Ross & Christian Hutcheson.  she had an elder sister Isabel chr 22 Nov 1812, a younger sister Catherine chr 30 Apr 1815 & one brother Hugh chr 1 Mar 1818, all in that same parish.  John Ross md 9 Feb 1810 in this same parish to Christian Hutchison.  Good luck!

I believe Margeret the dtr of Bennet Roger was chr Jun 1770 (from IGI extract), which would make her 13 at the age of marriage?  I have not seen brides that young before at this time in Scotland.  what do you think?  Might it have been another Margaret Rodger that he married?

yet another possibility is Agnes Binnie chr 1 Nov 1741 in Falkirk, Stirling to David and Janet Muirhead since that is the same parish where they married.  Also Bennett maybe the son of Thomas Roger who md Jun 1740 St Andrews & St leonards, Fife, to Helen BENNETT.  (both those dates retrieved from IGI extracts)



Clackmannanshire / Margaret Patterson married Charles Brown Wilson

I am looking for her parents.  She married 1820 in Larbert, Stirlingshire to Charles Brown Wilson, but she most likely was born in Clackmannan, to which she returned after his death, with their 3 children.  She evidently remarried to Alexander Fife in 1833 Clackmannan, and an LDS source has the wife of that Alexander as the dtr of james Paterson md to Christian Patterson.  Can anybody verify that?

ok; i see my 1st post didn't take.  i am a descendant of Robert Wilson, the eldest son and middle child of Charles Brown Wilson & Margaret Patterson.  i am definitely thrilled to find so many new cousins through the reading of this one thread--and to verify 3 generations farther back on the Brown and Wilson lines.  Hope to learn even more as i am able to make contact with those of you who also descend from his grandparents--and it sounds like there may be quite a few of us.  Robert emigrated with his younger brother Peter and their respective wives from Clackmannan to America in 1848 with several other members of the LDS Church which they had joined in Clackmannan.  I believe his mother was born in Clackmannan and that the family returned to her native county after Charles Brown Wilson died (sometime before an assumed 2nd marriage to Alexander Fife in 1833 Clackmannan.)  One question has always puzzled the descendants of this emigrant, Robert Wilson.  Once in America he went by the name Robert Knox Wilson.  Might anybody have a clue as to why somebody would add this middle name (which, as far as I can tell, has no genealogical significance)?

This is my 2nd post (although I don't see my 1st listed yet.)  Do any of you know the parents of Margaret Patterson, the wife of Charles Brown Wilson?
