I'm trying to find Janet's parents and to see if William Jack is related to Janet & Violet.

No birth/bapt for Violet Jack. Looks to be unmarried all through.

No Elizabeth Gourlay to Jack marriage and no birth/bapt for daughter Janet.

And can't find Elizabeth Jack in 1841. Janet with the Hart family.

Can't see yet how Violet is an aunt of Gibsons.

James Gibson seems to be married to Janet Crawford.

Thanks Geoff.

One Janet accounted for but not the one with Violet in 1861.

Still can't say how William might be related to Violet & Janet.

Alexander JACK & Isabell GRAHAM
14 Jan 1821 Middle Church, Paisley, Renfrew, Scotland
Batch: M119615

Alexander JACK & Isobell GRAHAM
13 Jan 1821 Abbey Paisley, Renfrew, Scotland
Batch: M119589

No baptism found for Alexander senior. Five sons:

Alexander * not found after 1871
John Lymburn * not found after 1841
James Graham * died Qld.
Graham/Graeme ? * not found after 1851
William * died Qld.

Thanks Geoff.

Probably posted banns in bride's and groom's parish.

Finding lots of stuff but not solving the problem.
