Bessie Gray Bell was married to William who was a Patternmaker.

The precognition says suicide.
Bessie took her own life at her place of residence.

I have found the information that was written on Scotlands People on the death certificate and also on the precognition.
I have offered to send Anderson them by e-mail in a personal message to him.

Yours,

East Lothian (Haddingtonshire) / Re: SIVES - East Lothian - 1650/1890

Lilias Marion Sives and Andrew Johnston had a son called Alexander Sives Johnston. He was born 1885 and he later became a shale miner/platelayer.
Alexander married Mary Jane Marshall Thom on 27th September 1907 at the Manse, Kirkliston, Linlithgow.
Alexander died on 3rd April 1940 at 52 Front Street, Mossend. It also has Mossend, West Calder. Not sure if it's meant to have two places.
Mary Jane was a housekeeper and she was born on 25th July 1882 at Meadowbank North Lodge, Kirkliston, Edinburgh.

I have the following Sives in my family tree:-
Alexander Sives, Farm Servant. Born 1822 Gladsmuir, East Lothian.
Married Christine Simpson who was born 1822 Haddingtonshire.

Alexander and Christine had a daughter, Lilias Marion Sives born 14 September 1856. Gilchristian Parish, Salton, Haddington.
Lilias married Andrew Johnston who was a Farm Labourer/Ploughman.
Lilias died in 1907.

I wonder if they link into your Sives ancestors?

Hello Don,
I have ancestors in the Oakbank, Kirknewton area whose surname was Davies. He was an Oil Still Headman in 1904 and his name was Elijah Davies. He was born in 1853 in Kidderminster, Worcestershire. He had a son called William Mowbray Davies born 1884 Kirknewton who was an apprentice wagon builder.
Elijah married Elizabeth Bell Mowbray in Lincoln in 1876.
Elijah and Elizabeth also had a son called Frederick Willetts Davies who was born 1896 in Oakbank, Kirknewton. He later became a fruiter and confectioner who ran two shops in Broxburn. Frederick married Mary Purves in 1921 in Addiewell.
Frederick and Mary had a son called Frederick Elijah Davies who was a librarian. He was born 1921 in Leith and he married Williamina McHardy Johnson Meek in Uphall in 1945. Williamina died 1969 Broxburn, after which he re-married Esther Bell Moore in Broxburn in 1970.

Apart from Elijah working in the oilworks as a shale worker in possibly the same premises as your Davies family. And having the first names of Frederick and William in the family. I think that is the only links and I do not think they are related to the same Davies line you are tracing. Apart from showing up on the oil work factory. 

Yours,

Hello Moira,
thanks for the reply on Arthur Abel. I will check out to see if it mentions his occupation on some of the census records. Then we should be able to establish when he started his fishmonger business.

Hello Forfarian,
Since it was me that did the initial request and it being part of my family tree. I decided to follow up the last request that you made.
David Cull, Coal Miner, married Elizabeth Wilson, Domestic Servant at Burngreen Hall, Kilsyth on 25th March 1910. David's parents were William Cull, Coachman and Elizabeth McCulloch. Elizabeth's parents were William Wilson, Labourer and Elizabeth McBurnie. 
David Cull was born on 18th October 1888 at 41 Burnside Street, off Garscube Road, Glasgow. It lists his parents as William Cull, Stableman and Elizabeth McCulloch. David's parents were married on 18th March 1881 at Milton, Glasgow.
It also lists Margaret Leggat, Maternal Grandmother, as being the informant of the birth at the address in Burnside Street above.

Hello Aghadowey,
Yes that is my cousin, John Shaw, who lives in Utah. We both work on the same family tree and lines.
As you say, it could be worth pursuing the County Antrim area for a birth for both of them.
