Is this a Scottish Death Certificate?

In Scotland, they often use the unmarried (nee) surnames on Headstones even when they were married, I've just been looking at some Scottish M.I.

Some were not officially married and were relationships by habit and repute.

Mark
"George HOOD of Selby" Before 1812?

Born about 1785 (Yorkshire per 1841 Census)

Married Sarah RUSSELL at Selby 1815 newspaper - "both of that place".

Buried in the Quaker Burial Ground at Selby as "Not in Membership" in 1845, aged 60 years.

George HOOD of Selby was refused Membership of the Quakers in 1836.

Elected Overseer of the Poor of Selby in 1838.

Had both known (Selby) and unknown (some not stated 1846) property interests.

Possible (but unknown) links to COOK and/or PEARSON names.

I see from the 1871 that she was born Stirlingshire and on the 1861, Dunbartonshire circa 1834/36. Have you checker for a baptism?

She was in both the census mentions and the area of Dumbartonshire I think borders Stirlingshire. I have tried finding her baptism records on Scotlands people and keep coming up blank. I have a date of 1836 for her birth. I found this death certificate on Scotlands people. The informant of the death was William Devine her husband. I am completely at a loss.  :'(

I can't find a marriage for them or registrations for the children, Eliza(beth) and Joseph. Do you have anything on these events that might give some info -even a marriage for one of the children  :-\

Just wondering where you found that she'd died circa 1886 and that her MS was Corrigan?  Maybe someone later on gave the wrong info  :-\

Add - not found any Catherine and Ronald McQueen in Stirlingshire or Dunbartonshire on the 1841 - may have missed them but .......

WOW lots of questions... Both William Devine and Catherine Corrigan married in 1854 at Barrhead this is not the marriage that is recorded in Mearns on the 19th. Their children are James 1857-1859, Elizabeth 1860?, Joseph 1861, Helen 1863?, and James 1863. I have his birth certificate and the marriage is recorded as 1854 Barrhead. I have the death certificate of Catherine who died 7 April 1884 at the Royal Infirmary Glasgow. I cannot find any of them on the 1881 census. Very strange.
