Where was William DAVIDSON in 1911?
« on: Monday 26 November 18 22:29 GMT (UK) »
William Davidson was born about 1870. On 8th February 1892 he married Martha MCCULLOUGH at Broughshane. He was of full age, batchelor, living at Ballygelly, and his father was named Hugh.

In 1901, William and Martha were living at Govan, Lanarkshire, Scotland, with 2 children, Willie H, born about 1894, Govan; and Jeanie, born May 1st 1895, Govan. (I have Jeanie's birth registration).

On 19th November 1905, Agnes McCullough DAVIDSON was born to William and Martha at Larne, Antrim.

On 6th January 1907, Martha died at Larne, Antrim.

On 3rd March 1908, William Houston DAVIDSON, Full age, widower, living at Larne, father Hugh, married Rose Mary MCMULLAN at the Independant Church, Larne, Antrim.

On the 1911 census, Agnes DAVISON, age 5, is living with her great aunt Nancy MCCULLOUGH at Slemish, Racavan, Antrim.

Of William, Rose, and the two older children, I have found no sign in 1911. I've checked deaths in Ireland and Scotland, censuses, and shipping documents. Where could they be?

Was Rose a widow or a spinster on the marriage cert?

If a widow - what was her fathers name

Champion, Sinann! I've just checked the birth of the youngest child, James, on that census, and his mother is Rose Mary MCMULLEN! Thank you.
