The McLeish Family of Dunning
« on: Sunday 15 May 11 21:43 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find family of George McLeish b abt 1836 in Dunning Perthshire Scotland who married Isabella Angus b abt 1838 in Fortvoit (I think) and married George McLeish 13 June 1862 in Perthshire Scotland.

I know they had one son George b 1869 in Dunning,and possibly a daughter Isabella does anyone have any further information on this family as I seem to be stuck, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Viewing the 1862 marriage cert will give you both sets of parents names plus mothers maiden name

www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk

There is also a submitted entry on the IGI which may be him - have you checked?

I had a wee peek at the Marriage Cert ....

Isabella Angus, Domestic Servant, age 23, living at *Pickletulm? Path [Perth District], daughter of George Angus, Farm Servant & Isabella McPherson.

After some Googling - the address is perhaps Picketullum
