Curious

Death 1924 CRAIG JEANIE [CURRIE] 50 Kilbarchan 568/1 5

Three possible marriages for Jeanie's parents.

Several Currie and Carruth families in Kilbarchan in 1871.

FreeCEN has no coverage in 1881.

Thanks Geoff.

Issues with Jane/Jeanie as well with Currie for some and Carruth for other records.

Dave
 
Yeah, would be useful to find a tree for guidance, no luck yet. Makes it twice as laborious looking Currie and Carruth, though it is slowly coming together.

Geoff
 
Daniel Craig's parents are Janet & John and the two children born after the 1895 marriage were named Janet & John so no help there.
 
This must be a contender, no obvious father..

I can't find that Currie family in Kilbarchan in 1871.

The only Jane/Janet is aged 20. And the only Isabella is aged 20.

A different family at 5 Steeple st in 1871.
