Just looking to see if anyone else has looked into this history.  Can't find when she married and moved from Scotland.

Have you looked for census records to see when and where children were born?

If married in Scotland then Scotland's People will have the marriage certificate- see www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk

Not sure on how to look on census records.  Also I now live in New Zealand.  I have done some stuff on Ancestry.com but find some of it a bit difficult to find.
