Margaret Ann WATSON , Macduff, Scotland
« on: Sunday 10 March 19 13:22 GMT (UK) »
Hello everyone on this snowy Sunday. I am in need of a little help regarding the above named Margaret Ann WATSON, my maternal Great Grandmother. I know she was born in 1886 in Macduff, Scotland and that she married twice. Firstly, to Innes McKay of Macduff in 1912  and from this marriage my Grandad, Innes McKay was born an only child in 1919. Following the death of her husband in 1927 Margaret Ann Watson married again in 1929 to a John Mair of Macduff.

What I would dearly like to know is something about Margaret Ann Watson's parent's, grandparents and any siblings? I would greatly appreciate any help as this would be the final pieces in my family history jigsaw as regards my Great, Great Grandparents.

Many thanks to all in advance,

Jason.

Hi Rosie,
I don't have the certificates. This information is what I have from my 95yo Grandma who passed away recently and from visiting Margaret Ann Watson's grave in Whitehills,
Regards
Jason.

The 1912 marriage cert says that Margaret's parents are George, fisherman deceased, and Jane - maiden surname looks like Louie.

Her second marriage in 1929 shows the same parents but with the addition of Grant after Jane - Jane Grant Watson MS Louie.
