Monica,

You will not believe it....................found what I assume to be the connection which is Null & Void   :o ;D

My grandfather's 1st wife was Isabella Bethia M(a)cFarlan/e/d  ???

I'm assuming my grandad didn't tell my grandmother what the connection was & she would be oblivious but my grandad had a sweetshop in Belfast within their house.

The shop was downstairs & living quarter's upstairs.

I wonder if MacFarlane & Lang delivered to the shop?

I will put that to my aunt as she was only a kid herself  ::)  ;D

Not going to inherit any shortbread now am I  ;D

Maybe not  ;) Follow it through as you said though...amazing how our elder family remember the detail, whilst not clear to us...leads you somewhere else!

With your aunt and the memory of the Lorry...was this when she was a child in Ireland, from what she has mentioned to you?

My mum's memory of her early life is sharper and clearer than what I did 10 mins ago... ;D

Absolutely. My aunt was born 1933 & her mum (my grandmother) died 1948 so it was within that period  ;D

Will ask her next week & put it to her regarding 1st wife as they had a son together & my grandad was a widower when he married my grandmother.

I know this is an old post, but my great grandfather was thr rev. John Macfarlane, a relation to Macfarlane & Lang ...im just not exactly sure where he fits in(son/nephew/other). I suspect he would have been born in the 1880s as hos wife was born 1890, they married in 1914 and had their 1st child in 1915

Alexander McFarlane and Jane McNair Graham were married in Row in 1879. Jane died in Row in 1928 aged 76, so she must have been born about 1851/1852.

Go to www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk, invest in a few credits, and use some of them to view the marriage certificate. This will tell you the names of Alexander's and Jane's parents including their mothers' maiden surnames, and the occupations of Alexander and his father.
