Mary Eckford (ms Wilson)
« on: Thursday 02 February 12 16:21 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to trace a death cert for my GGG Grandmother, Mary Eckford (ms. Wilson).  She was born at Galashiels on 1.5.1816, and maried Thomas Eckford.  Thomas, who was a shepherd, died 7.2.1894 in Edinburgh.

Their daughter (and my GG Grandmother) Mary Eckford (later maried as Mary Stark) was born c.1850 in or aound St Boswells, and died 28.1.1933.

I'm pretty sure she lived beyond 1855, but can't find any death cert in the Borders or Edinburgh.  Any ideas??

Thanks ev - that's definitely the right one.  Cannot find a death cert though, and I know she was deceased by the time Thmas died in 1894 which narrows it to 1881-1894?????
