This is going to be a hard nut to crack I think.

I wonder if your g/dads' forename Alan is the clue?

Do you know why the MI is in Lochmaben, did the man come from there, was Alans' mother still in a relationship with him at the time of his death?

Any clues at all may help?

Mairi, do you think if you saw the name you would recognise it?

We donít believe Janet and the father of her child maintained any relationship however, Alan G Smith had contact with his paternal grandparents until they died. He moved from Gorbals to Mouswald when he was quite young (5 ish) and Janet remained in Glasgow. I think looking at Alan as the surname may be helpful. Also other possible names are Andrew and Alexander. They just appear on the family tree for no reason whilst other names like Robert and Graham appear often.

Mum or I might recognise the name, yes, possibly.

We think mystery manís parents were from Lochmaben and were buried in the cemetary also.

I have only been going throught the Minor Records on SP using;
Birth 1907 +/- 5 (1902 - 1912)
Death 1939 - 1943
Age 29 - 39

An awful lot of 'could be's before I narrowed it down with surname Allan.

These might be worth scrolling through, I don't know how many are there but one never knows?

Not sure if this could mention your mystery man as the yr is out from what you thought as well as not being scottish papers?

Did your g/father not give his father's name on his marriage & was it not recorded on his death?
