Hello Julie,

Thanks for looking.

Hard to tell with this one as well:

Mary Hunter
Scotland, Births and Baptisms, 1564-1950
birth: 22 Oct 1846 ,​ Sanquhar,​ Dumfries,​ Scotland
residence: 1846 Sanquhar,​ Dumfries,​ Scotland
parents: Robert Hunter,​ Mary Hislop

Looks as though there are only the two to worry about.


SP has the marriage with her name as Mary Susan.

1855 onwards the index just gives the year.
Hi Dave,

Susan Mary Hunter born abt 1847 Sanquhar is with her mother Susan and siblings Jane and George in 1851, and so is the other Mary with her parents Robert and Mary in 1851.
Thanks Julie.

I did not find Mary in 1851 in FreeCEN so I looked for her as 'Susan'.

I can see no birth/baptism for a Susan HUNTER yet to fit that 1851 I posted.

The only trees I can find have her birth as 1844 and no parents or siblings listed.

I should have checked the FreeCEN coverage - Dumfries is not listed with any percentage complete for 1851.
