John Anderson & Elizabeth NICOLL
24 May 1823 Gorbals, Lanark,

John Anderson & Elizabeth NICHOL
25 May 1823 Old Monkland, Lanark

Only death I can see which can't fit:

1907 ANDERSON Elizabeth (NICHOL) Age 68

Daughter Margaret ANDERSON 12 Sep 1824 Old Monkland, Lanark

married in 1847 but I can't find Margaret with either parent in 1841.

John Newlands WARK & Margaret ANDERSON
2 Apr 1847 Barony, Lanark
2 Apr 1847 Dunoon and Kilmun, Argyll

I'm curious why they married in Argyll because they were both born in Lanark. John's parents were both born in Lanark.

1851 census has Margaret born Old Monkland.

One tree has Margaret's mother as Elizabeth BLAIR. I'd say that tree is wrong because a descendant has a middle name of Nicol.
