Hello dave,

Thanks. I'm not sure yet.

After a few more census listings I might be in a better position to answer that.

He married Effie McDONALD. ;)

Please see if you can find John in 1881. He might be in West College street, Glasgow.

I'm starting with a marriage certificate and no information about his place of birth.

Regards,

Dave

Hello dave,

I just searched for a John born Lanark and found this one:

John Finlay - parents John & Catherine HANNA.

Parents of the one I'm after are Samuel & Catherine LAWRIE.

I'll look for the marriage. No luck yet.

Regards,

Dave

Hello dave,

Perhaps work back from 1901:

45 Blackburn Street, Plantation, Glasgow, Lanark
Euphemia CLEMENTS wife 36 born Inverness

John is a dock /quay labourer.

The problem is that I have fragments of the census relating only to Effie and minus the reference.

Regards,

Dave

Hello dave,

Yes that is one family I'm after. Thank you very much.

This is another fragment I was going to post next:

14 Tap Lane, Inverness, Inverness
James MacDONALD son unmarried age 19 cattle sales attendant born Inverness
It's complicated because I have an Euphenia McPHIE who married a James McDONALD and they had children named James and Euphemia McDONALD.

I don't have that John CLEMENTS, grandson, in my tree. There is a John CLEMENTS b. abt 1868 who married the Euphemia (in blue) :2fun:

How can we do this?

James senior died in 1892 and spouse Euphemia died in 1898.

Regards,

Dave
