any help grateful
« on: Saturday 09 June 07 08:36 BST (UK) »

Im trying to trace the decendants of a Sarah Jane Stanners b1882 (motherwell) who married (19/06/1908) Robert Hardie c1882 (Ashkirk, Selkirkshire)

I know who their children are -
George 1906,
Margaret 1909,
Robert 1911,
James 1914,
David 1917,
Christina 1920,
Isabella 1923,
Jessie 1924,
elizabeth 1925

What I am trying to find is who these people married and what children they had.

They were all born in motherwell.

The reason I am trying to do this is I have been tracing my family line for sometime and the Hardie name appears alot up to present day. My grandmother was Margaret Hardie Walker Cunningham and she married into wallace, and my direct decendants all have Hardie/hardy as a middle name.

She was one of 10 children others were -
Thomas =Jessie
Marion=John Mlroy
Eitha(Isia)=Jock Weir
Agnes=David Allison
Mary=Ian WIlson
Margaret=James Wallace (MY grandparents)

This is the only link I have where christian names seem to match and they are all from Lanarkshire area. My family grew up in Shotts, Whitburn, Lanark etc

So hopefully I can find some march via decendants
thanks in advance
