I do not have a marriage certificate for Agnes/Mary Holmes AND William McCulloch (they were married but she retained her maiden name). No idea where they were married. This is why I haven't been able to find out more details of Agnes/Mary's parent's. Bit of a mystery.

I have (a few others as well) the marriage/death certificates for David Holmes McCulloch/Jessie Young and a death certificate for William McCulloch stated in this forum above.

I would definitely like to speak to people that are my McCulloch family members. There are still some McCulloch descendants related to me living in Scotland (for privacy reasons I will just put X). Some of these descendants who live in X may have the information I'm looking for. However, genealogy isn't easy, it takes someone who understands the subject that can help people find their ancestors. My DNA tests were rather disappointing. They did come up with some family members that gave me some useful information but I have never got past my paternal 4 x grandparents.

William McCulloch and Agnes/Mary Holmes were married but she retained her maiden name. I have also been looking for information on their son named as: David Homes McCulloch (b. Ireland 1858
d. 1912 in Glasgow...

...I do not have a marriage certificate for Agnes/Mary Holmes AND William McCulloch



How do you know that David Homes McCulloch (b. Ireland 1858
d. 1912 in Glasgow) is the son of William McCulloch and Agnes/Mary Holmes?

Is the information from David Homes McCulloch's birth certificate? What does Davids birth certificate state?

There is no birth certificate for David Holmes McCulloch born in Ireland in 1857 0r 1858??.

Death certificate states that for David Holmes McCulloch who died in 1912 aged 54, his father was William McCulloch and mother Agnes Holmes. However, on his marriage certificate to Jessie Young in 1877 it states that his parent's were William McCulloch and Mary McCulloch (nee Holmes)

There likely won't be a marriage certificate then, as the Civil registration of births, marriages and deaths started in Ireland in 1864 and in Scotland in 1855

I think I will have to go back to my DNA results. They were VERY disappointing. Left more questions than answers. Anyway, thanks for your time,

Cheers,

 Elwyn Soutter and Rosinish have both given some good information from records, posted earlier in the topic.

Yes I have most of the certificates they mentioned, it's always interesting chatting to other people to see if they have something you missed. The details do change a little bit on the certificates so it's a bit confusing when trying to find records on Genealogy sites.

William McCulloch had a second wife called Rosanna Fox. They had a son named John born in Ireland in 1871. They were married in 1874. He would be 46 and she would be 40. He died in 1900 at the age of 81.

"William McCulloch had a second wife called Rosanna Fox"

As you have no birth/baptism for William, no marriage to 'supposed' 1st wife Agnes/Mary then the 2nd marriage is a must as it's William giving 1st hand info...unlike his death cert. which is info. from someone other than himself i.e. may not match the info. given by William which should state whether he was widowed/single & witnesses may help too but it will/should also state whether his parents are alive/deceased?
