Thanks Geoff.

It's all new to me. I've not looked at possible marriage and death for Janet until now. Not sure it's the right Janet yet.

Any info from tree re her birth and parents?

I have three possible marriages to check.

This is the one I'm chasing:

Thanks Geoff.

Well that's the one but now to verify.

16 Jun 1843 Abbey (Paisley), Renfrew
Batch: M119591

Rev. D. Macnair
Both residing at Charleston, Abbey Parish.

BUTCHART has about 6 variations.

Jean BUTCHART c. 22 Aug 1824 Polmont, Stirling
George BUTCHART & Christian HANNAH
Batch: C114874
Death 1890 MANWELL Janet (ARROL) Paisley, Renfrew Age 34

It confirms the marriage. The Janet I'm chasing was aged 7 months in 1851 census and listed as 8 in 1857 Index to Paupers Statement. Age is not a good fit.

Death 1868 WILSON Janet (ARROL) Abbey, Renfrew Age 19

Age a better fit for these two.
