Thanks Ellie.

I don't see how 1857 could be correct for his death with Elizabeth remarrying.

The 1851 newspaper notice says the late James ...

Charles Batchen & Elizabeth Anderson
25 Aug 1851 Alloa, Clackmannan, Scotland
Batch: M119543

Charles died 9/5/1859 aged 27 years they were living in Glasgow at the time 2 children from that marriage Elizabeth born 1854 Edinburgh died 1936 Glasgow and Charles born 1855 died 1857.

Re the names of Elizabeth's (Keltie - parents John & Margaret) children we have a bit of a problem. Possibly missing some children.

Known children: John, Margaret, James and Andrew:

1st son - ?
1st dau - Mother's mother
2nd son - ?
3rd son - ?

I have no info re James parents so can't confirm David and Grizel/Grace.

If that is James Flockhart dying in 1851 then there is no Civil Registration of his death. May be lucky that it was recorded in Parish records.

Elizabeth ANDERSON's mother was also a KELTIE so I have another connection there.

KELTIE is in my direct line.

Lots of gaps and baptisms and deaths/burials that can't be found.
