Thanks Geoff.

I dunno. :) Yes, I did find that 1851 census.

This still points to 1853:

Death 1921 Elizabeth ARROL (WITHERS) Springburn, Lanark Age 68


Can William be found in 1871 as a furnaceman? I presume that info came from the 1874 marriage.

Also if FINDLAY is correct I'm thinking Scotland not Ireland.

Thanks Geoff.

So Elizabeth is pretending to be younger from marriage onwards?

Iron moulder would fit with furnaceman.

In 1881 we have a William not a James aged 26 - does not say bro-in-law.

James Withers
birth: 11 March 1855 HIGH CHURCH,GLASGOW,LANARK,SCOTLAND
father: William Withers
mother: Eliza Mcilroy

That's the only one. A copy of that birth should list date of marriage and number of children.

That points to Ireland.
