John McDermond V.C. - Family buried in Greenside?
« on: Sunday 13 December 15 10:49 GMT (UK) »
John McDermond V.C. is alleged to have married Margaret Watterson at Alloa on 22 Oct 1863, but unable to find a marriage on Scotland`s People.
John died in High Church, Glasgow in 1866 and had a son John and daughter Joan.
The birth certificate for son John is Statutory Births 644/02 0607 and on this certificate the marriage date can be found.
There is no record in Clackmannanshire for a burial for John but I believe there is a burial for a Mrs. John McDermond at Greenside in 1873 and also for a Janet McDermond in 1869. Don`t know if this Janet is part of the same family though.
Any further information on the burial or marriage would be much appreciated.

Poorhouse Paisley under name John McDiarmid
Buried Woodside Cemetery Paisley Section 26  grave unmarked
Deed Service Commemoration saved the life of Colonel who was wounded and surrounded by the enemy bringing him back to British lines ..
Might not be the same John  as you have his death certificate

Thanks Rosie. I have seen these before and also his military records. Just trying to tie up his relationship with Alloa and Clackmannanshire.
