"Her parents were a an Andrew Swanson and her mother was jessie.Sutherland"

Does the info. on parents on Christina's marriage &/or death give Jessie as Jessie Swanson, M S Sutherland or Jessie Sutherland?

Possible birth on SP;

SWANSON CHRISTINA 1878
041/ 60 Thurso

This will give parents date & place of marriage.

You don't say what info. you're looking for?

Parents marriage;

SWANSON ANDREW to SUTHERLAND JESSIE 1867
038/ 10 Latheron (Caithness)

The marriage will give both sets of parents names including mothers maiden names, occupations, addresses & witnesses.

Have you checked any census records for siblings?
