Two marriages for a Walker Stevenson:

21 Jan 1849, Borgue, KKD to Agnes Houston

17 April 1854, Kirkcudbright, KKD to Marion Sharpe

It looks very much as if Anne/Agnes might have died in childbirth or something and Walker remarried - conjecture but looks strongly possible.

  Hi Gadget,

Yes it looks like agnes died in childbirth or just after

I have a copy of Dorothy;s marriage cert and could not make out the maiden name of the her mother.

now I know it was Agnes Houston.and John Walker Stevenson her parents.



Once again my many many thanks


Ecclescake.
