yes, some time ago thought the same..carsick hill rd isnt far from where ann and alexander lived..the widowed ann was living on brookhouse hill ,fulwood area on the1891 census with alexanders brothers staying or visiting...theyre not blood related,only by marriage but its very intriguing.i am still "investigating"...fran

tracey..just to elaborate on my previous message about the graves...alexander married ann marples my gt gt gt aunt.they are both buried with anns sister emma,my great great grandmother and her husband william tomlinson. also in the grave is their baby granddaughter.she was the baby of the other couple in plot u16!
u16 has two of my great grandparents lilly and edwin great uncle will is with them but his wife doris is with her family on the other side of the city!!  a little strange for acouple married over 50 years.
may i ask even though alexander is only a relative by marriage i am still interested,does the hyslop family have a family plot and stone at lochrutton..when did james,alexanders fatherand mother       die,theyve got me hooked..if we ever came up to the dumfries area for a break we would know where to find them..

thanks for reply.first must say ive checked ann marples married alexander hyslop 26 june 1856 at queen st presbyterian chapel sheffield.he states his father as james hyslop(deceased)she as william marples also deceased.ann was my gt gt gt aunt,on my previous message i was one generation out.another thing i checked today was census details 1851 alexander was in sheffield and on 1861he was here as well with ann.however 1871 i felt they were visiting his old mum in scotland.the alexander was stated as 39 but instinct tells me it should be 59...perhaps the hand writing was very bad and got transcribed 1881 alexander and ann were living on pomona st sheffield which is very near the general cemetery where they are buried..what do you think about the visit home in1871,but he still came back to sheffield.if you still want i will send the grave details next time  hope to hear soon

Alexander Hyslop late of Corsock, Dumfries, married in 1856 in Sheffield my great great Aunt Anne Marples. They lived in Sheffield for the rest of their lives and are buried in the General Cemetery Sheffield in a family plot with Anne's sister Emma, her Husband William Tomlinson and their baby granddaughter who died in 1900 as a baby. This is plot U18, plot U16 is also held by the family of Tomlinson, where 3 further Tomlinsons are buried. There are stones on both plots, let me know if you would like a transcription or more info.
I also have census info for Alexander for the years up to his death (1851, 61, 71 and 81) haven't found him in 1841 yet have you?
