Thanks Geoff.

Yes, remarried.

Burial Book: Grace Walker West aged 56 died at Clay House 5 July 1896.

-----------
Catherine Mc Kenzie Hastings b. 7 May 1870 Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland
Alexander Hastings & Grace West
Batch C116853

That middle name accounted for.

Found more than I expected so now have bits to follow.

HASTINGS
HENRY
CATHERINE WEST/FR2396
19/06/1846

Who is that Catherine? If the spouse of William West then she would have remarried as McKenzie.

No birth/baptism found for the Catherine West who married Henry Hastings.

The marriage of James Walker & Catherine West ??
Using Walker by 1911, emigration date to the US. Looks to be traveling with a Wilhelmina West [27], trees have her as a sibling. No sign of a James, maybe he went there first [1920 census has his emigration date as 1911 also]

This has to be the Alexander who married Grace West in 1869.

HASTINGS
ALEXANDER
HENRY HASTINGS/CATHERINE WEST FR9947

So his mother is a mystery. I can't find a baptism so have no idea if part of same West family.

If I found the death for that Catherine then ... ?? Or if I found her in 1841 before she married. ?

Must be that to explain the middle name Hastings. You don't get middle names at birth when siblings marry 20 years later.

If Catherine born abt 1823 was third daughter then named after her mother.

Mary as second ? daughter then William's mother's name.
