Hello,

From the IGI, (www.familysearch.org) using the 'search' facility and entering only the names Alexander Wilson and Agnes Young, you come up with 5 children - listed below - includes your James Stuart Wilson.  I hope that's of some help.  You're in good luck as all the children have middle names.  Now it's over to to others, the IGI and Scotlands People (www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk)

Have a good day.  REgards,   Steve

Had a look on Scotlands People just now.  Can find no record of Alexander Wilson and Agnes Wilson marrying in Scotland between 1863 to 1867.

Looked for Agnes Wison death - to see if she was a widow what her husbands name was - came up with 20 between 1855 and 1956 Scotland wide.  I downloaded a likely entry of an Agnes Wilson (nee Young) died on 03 June, 1909 in Parish of Eastwood, County of Renfrew - aged 65.   This Agnes would have been born abt 1844 making her abt 21 on marriage.  However, that husband is an Alexander Stewart Wilson (Commercial Traveller) - he signs as her widower.

This Agnes Wilsons mother was a Margaret Forrest (or so it looks to me) - which is also the name of the female child of Alexander Wilson and Agnes Young.  I can post the death entry here, or if you PM me I can send to your own e-mail address.  I have also copied the list of all the Agnes Wilsons (but obviously not the entries)- should this not be your one.

Over to you.  Regards,   Steve

Agnes Young married A.S. Wilson 20 Oct 1865 Anderston Glasgow.

From Scotlandspeople you can download and print their marriage certificate.
This will give you their occupations also the names of their parents and father's occupation.
