Lanarkshire / Mary WALKER CAMPBELL
« on: Saturday 30 June 18 12:44 BST (UK)  »
 I have the birth certificate of Mary Walker CAMPBELL born 7th Feb 1912 to Alexander CAMPBELL and Margaret M.S COUSINS she was born at the family home 150 Rose street Hutchesontown.

Siblings Alexander CAMPBELL b 26 Feb 1908
  and Agnes Smith CAMPBELL b 2 Jan 1911

both of these people were still alive when I was a child and I don't recall any mention ever of their younger sister.
 Mary's father died in an accident at work on the railway in 1916 and it is noted he left a widow and three children. This is the last mention of Mary I have been able to find anywhere.  We know there were no other siblings born before Mary as the family are listed at 150 Rose street on the census in 1911.
Margaret COUSINS re married my great grandfather Robert MCDOUGALL who was already a widow and they proceeded to have a family together.
I would really like to know what happened to her. I am aware of the surnames TRAN, JACK and PORTERFIELD mentioned when I was younger and having known they were related to uncle Alex (Alexander b 1908) but at that age I didn't query and now can't. This leaves the possibility they  are either related through Alexander who died in 1916 or MARY born 1912
any help or suggestions would be gratefully appreciated as I have already spent a fortune on SP .
Regards Amanda

Not sure where to post this but owing to my own foolishness i have been left with a huge setback in my research of ancestor Alexander McDougall b Glassary Argyll 4 Sept 1822 son of Duncan McDougall and Ann Gillies. According to his sons Marriage cert Alexander was a master Mariner who Married Agnes McFie
The family at the time of 1851 census were together
Alexander MacDugall   28 Head Ship master b Kilmichael, argyleshire
Agnes MacDugall   25
Duncan MacDugall   5
John MacDugall   3
Agnes MacDugall   1

there are two entries which appear to be Alexanders marriage one states the 3rd of May 1845
Alexander Mcdougall m 3 May 1845 Ann Mcfie Glassary Argyll

the other  21 May 1845 in Barony
Alexander Mcdougall m Agnes Mcfie 21 May 1845 Barony,Lanark

reads as follows
 Alexander McDougall Seaman of Lochgilphead Parish of Kilmichael, Glassary, and Agnes McFie residing in Barony Parish on 21st of May 1845 at Lochgilphead by rev William Mclachlan Minister of the reformed Presbyterian Chapel parish of Kilmichael

At this point i had thought this was the same marriage as Agnes/Annie are both used when his wife is mentioned elsewhere

I made contact with someone on a site who appeared to be researching the same person which led to me mistakenly pursuing a career as a mariner ships dates etc for the wrong Alexander McDougall the guy had all the right relatives etc but mariner ticket 100043 belonged to Another Alexander McDougall born in Lochgilphead APRIL 1823  now i am at a loss as to which is the right wedding detail and how to trace my Alexanders mariners or seamans ticket?
 what it appears like is two Alexander McDougalls both born in Argyll within a year and both pursued a career in the merchant service possibly both  married in May 1845

any help appreciated i feel rather deflated

 Wonder if anyone can tell me is this likely to be relating to a will or any other kind of record liable to confirm his death or even if it is the same person as my master mariner of the same name

 All parties having CLAIMS against estate of the deceased DUNCAN MCDOUGALL mariner Lochgilphead are requested to lodge the same , duly vouched with Wilson & Douglas writers of Inveraray within one month from this date

Inveraray Sept 5th 1857

Hoping someone can advise me on the details of the extract attached it relates to my 3 x G Grandparents and both their parents also as there is very little i can actually make sense of. Being still fairly new to Genealogy its the first difficulty of this nature i have had but its will not be the last as i go farther back so any advice would be most appreciated

 thanks Amanda

According to census 1911 from SP Robert McDougall 39 , Wife Margaret 30, and children as follows
Robert age 8
Alexander age 4
Ann age 2
Mary age 8months

The street address i cant make out but the family were in Hutchesontown, Lanark,
which is consistent with the boys birth cert extracts and also his wifes death in 1914
Margaret M.S Blair parents John Blair and Mary Ann (McMinn?) who were both deceased in 1914  and Mary Ann prior to the couples marriage in 1901

I have been unable to locate the children atall after their mothers death

Robert re married in 1918 to Margaret Campbell (widow) M.S Cousin
 They went on to have another 2 possibly 3 kids aswell as her having 3 from her first marriage to Alexander Campbell inn 1907 he died aged 34 in 1916

Robert McDougall (1871) died in 1922 aged 50 
Margaret (Cousin) died 1961 her son Alexander Campbell registered the death

any suggestions regarding the children first mentioned would be appreciated as am at a brickwall

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read :D ??? ???
