Re where did the lair 132 come from,

Wheech research:  OPR Deaths Glasgow 644/1/65/71
1820: May: 9: George Murray: [Age] - : [Cause of Death] - : [Lair] 132: 1s. 6d.

In 1841 census a likely Mrs Margaret Murray, 75, an independent, resided at Campbell Street, Barony, Glasgow, with Jane Murray, 20, possibly a granddaughter, and Margaret Smith, 25, a female servant.  Margaret Murray nee Davidson, 76, died in January 1845 of old age and was buried in the same Lair No.132 on 17 January 1845.

OPR Deaths Glasgow 644/1/67/174
1845: January: 17: Mrs Margaret Davidson or Murray: [Age] 76: [Cause of Death] Aged: [Lair] 132: 2s.6d

Phillip, likely these would show no details on burials but just checking whether you have seen them. From Scotlands People:

George Murray
10/5/1821
wright in Glasgow, spouse of Margaret Murray Davidson
Trust Disposition and Settlement
Glasgow Sheriff Court Wills
SC36/51/1

John Murray
1/2/1780
wright in Glasgow
Testament Dative and Inventory
Glasgow Commissary Court
CC9/7/71

I mostly find that death notices in the Glasgow Herald are simply that with no detail on cemetery. Might be worth checking nevertheless... The Glasgow Herald is on google. You cannot search by key word on google but you have dates to work from.

http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=GGgVawPscysC - simply add year for search to see what issues may be available (insert a year in 'Date' box).

Could this reference and legal debate regarding Widow Murray relict of George Murray, wright and glazier of Glasgow, relate to your Margaret Davidson Murray? From google books, link shrunk http://www.rootschat.com/links/01nap/

How much info do you have on the wider Murray family for John and George?

I ask because there are a number of Murrays buried at Ramshorn Cemetery www.happyhaggis.co.uk/lanark-ramshorn.htm

1442 The property of Archibald(?) Murray, wright(?) in Glasgow, Helen(?) Mar#### ###...###, E### Cr##### his spouse, died on the #th of March 18#2 aged forty two years. Sacred to the memory of Maurice Murray(?), late wright in Glasgow, who died on the 18th day of ### MDCCC##### aged seventy-seven years. John Murray ###...### 1841 aged 38(?) years and 3(?) months also(?) sacred to the ###...### Archiband(?) Thomas(?) who died on the 1st(?) day of May(?) #### aged ## years.

I think this is the Maurice mentioned there. From Wills section on SP:

Maurice Murray
9/12/1817
wright in Glasgow
Inventory; Extract Disposition and Settlement
Glasgow Sheriff Court Inventories
SC36/48/13

Unfortunately, I cannot find any online lair info for the cemetery on Family Search (as mentioned by Batfruit earlier). Their databases are easy enough to find if you follow Batfruit's notes earlier.

This family group is just a possibility really.

There may be no surving stone for your Murrays and therefore monumental inscriptions to help further. Lair books are certaintly the way forward as you are doing.

Thanks Monical,
                       The poor law ref was a great help.
At this stage i haven't found any Archibald Murrays linked to our tree.

John Murray & Ann Scott had 4 children
1  John m. Janet Hunter who we have researched.
2 Mary b.1762 we know nothing
3 James b.1765 we know nothing
4 George & Margaret Davidson who we have researched, but know nothing of there other 8 children,except George.

So the Ref to Margarets Daughters was great to get.

Many thanks to all that so far have replied.

Cheers Phillip
