Thank you all so much, at least we know what happened to Edward now, it was mentioned in the family that he never married. No wonder I couldnít find details of him. It would be nice to find out what happened to him if he was cremated or buried and where etc. Thatís a task for another day though.

I canít figure out what cause of death was due to handwriting and I think it says Ballinastraw. Do you think Iím right. Can anyone decipher cause of death, where and informants name as very hard to read

Ballinastraw is mentioned on Mary Anneís baptismal certificate
Ballinakill and Bariniskey are mentioned on William and Margaretís marriage cert

Sinnan, yes he was still married, Margaret Corcoran died in Scotland as a widow on 8th April 1936 aged 80. She outlived her daughter Bridget and possibly Margaret

So what is on the 1901 and 1911 Census of Scotland for the Margaret and the rest of the family?
Was William on the 1901 Census of Scotland?
You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.

Ok thanks, looks like quite a few Bestallís on the census but sadly none of my ancestors. i presume previous census records were lost in the fire/destroyed 

Thatís probably whatís causing me the hassle of linking the family properly to their forebears
