Mary b. 28 Sep 1844 High Church Paisley, Renfrew, Scotland
John HOUSTON & Sarah Nickel ANGEL
Batch C115736

1860 HOUSTON MARY NELSON - COCHRANE WILLIAM 573/1 64 Paisley High Church

1862 HOUSTON MARY - YUILL WILLIAM 573/2 29 Paisley Low Church

I've only included the marriages in Paisley.

I have nothing on Mary after 1851 so don't know if she died before 1855 or if she lived to marry before or after 1861 census.

Yes, sorry about that Geoff.

I usually put a note saying '1871 see parents' but didn't for Mary.

If I have the right death for her father John then one of those might fit. Will get to John later.

Thanks Geoff.

I didn't look that far because I didn't remember I had Mary in 1871.

Thomas living in London Road Glasgow as was Matthew.

Several died in Camlachie.

Windows did a major update last might that took 30 min to install. All my fonts have reverted to tiny and my keyboard has been re-set to English with £ instead of $ and with " and 'at' no longer above the 2. Damn them. Why can't they save existing settings instead of overwriting them?
Now I have to remember how to change keyboard layouts.

It's only listing one keyboard in settings so I can't choose one and hit delete yet the icon on bottom right shows two.

Yeah, it's a damn nuisance when that happens, having to reset everything.. Fortunately not had similar problems lately..

I can't even find where you can add a keyboard layout or delete one that is installed.

I solved the issues with the size of fonts and the size of scroll bars etc by creating a .reg file with my settings and I just use that to overwrite the default registry settings. Not sure if I can create a .reg to do the same for the keyboard.

Dunno, Dave.. It looks as though those executions are carried out through 'Control Panel'. Had a quick look at mine, they appear to be carried out automatically.
