Hi Bellejazz,

It's your family tree and you can put on who you like.  Just try to make it clear that there is no blood relationship.

Hi Docherty,

Married into my family was Mary Ann Docherty born 1859 in Old Monkland daughter of Edward and Jane Docherty (Bell).  She married George Bell in 1885 in Old Monkland.  After George's death in 1890 she married Thomas Wallace in 1893 in Glasgow.

Any connection?

Hi Paul,

My great great uncle went mad from too much alcohol.  They didn't drink the water as that would kill you.

Glasgow archives sent me the record, free of charge and to Perth, Western Australia.
