Alexander Sharp
« on: Monday 14 August 17 23:56 BST (UK) »
I have Alexander Sharp from Clackmannanshire born around 1790 as my 4th Great Grandfather.

He married Christian Ross 1789 - 1869  on 4th July 1807.

I'm wondering if any member has been able to identify who Alexander's parents were?

What is the last census you have him on? 

What is the first census where Christian is shown as a widow?

i have him in the 1841 Census and Christian is marked as Head in the 1851 census living in Sauchie.  That's if it's the correct Sharps..

They married in Clackmannanshire.

You haven't answered Carole's question whether Christian was a widow?
Being 'Head' doesn't necessarily mean being widowed as they may have just been separated?

Were both 'of this parish' when they married?

Was he alone (& where) or were there others...wife/children, was he recorded as being born in that Parish ???

Can you please give as much detail as possible.

What was Christian's place of birth on the 1851?

Forgive me but could you give me time to edit and reply? :).  Struggling with an old phone and bad connection.

Christian was a widow on her death certificate.  The rest of the information is all I know at this stage.
