Alexander Blues and Charlotte Duncan
« on: Monday 13 July 20 15:19 BST (UK) »
James Blues died 27 July 1884 Arbirlot aged 82 and born Tannadice.
The SP death cert. image gives Jame's parents as Alexander Blues and Charlotte Duncan.
I am looking for any information on these parents and particularly their marriage.
Many thanks.

Thank you for these contributions. At the moment I am particularly interested in your info. Trish.
Can you give me any further detail about this tree which you refer to please. I have not yet tied this info. to my James, Alexander and Charlotte.
I have found Mary Blues nee Johnston on SP. Her death Cert. image says she died on 8 Sept. 1857 age 72 in Dundee as the widow of a shipmaster. The informant was her son J Blues of 144 Seagate (I assume Dundee)
Look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks again for your efforts Trish.
I have been digging further in parallel with you and have found that Alexander was in fact a Farm Labourer.
The SP death cert. images for two of James' siblings:

Charlotte 1815-1861 shows father Alex as an Agricultural labourer, mother Charlotte Duncan
Margaret 1824-1893 shows father Alex as a Farm labourer mother, Charlotte Duncan

Margaret's age is recorded as 64 at 17 Dec 1893 but I have her born 19 Jan 1824 which would make her 69. This in turn means her mother Charlotte b 18 June 1775 was either 48 or 53ish when she had Margaret??

A quck look at the index as Scotland's People sorts that one out.

Alexander was born in 1816, not 1818.

Always best to go for the original source.
