Hello,

Robert MALCOLM & Agnes MILLAR
Marriage: 30 Aug 1860 Hutchesontown, Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland

Mary Robertson MALCOLM b. 30 Oct 1860 Hutchesontown, Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland
parents - Robert MALCOLM & Agnes MILLAR

Ok, this may seem a curious question. Robert's sister Margaret married Archibald ROBERTSON in 1855 in Hutchesontown. There is no ROBERTSON family on Robert's side, parents or grandparents. Would it be unusual to give a middle name that was the family name of an uncle (by marriage)?

I'm sure I can give similar examples from my tree for other MALCOLMs and related.

Regards,

Dave
