I'd like a look up please for the McLUCKIE family in Lanark in 1871. In 1861 they were in Rutherglen and in 1881 in Partick.

Robert b. abt 1812 Glasgow
Jane/Jean b. abt 1813 Monkland
Margaret b. 1845 Mill maker
John b. 1852
Robert b. 1854
Ann b. 1857

Margaret is unmarried and should be there but you may or may not find the other three children.

Hello Joyce & juliejtp,

Thank you both for looking. All I can think of is that they went to Ireland to visit their son Alexander. :2fun:

Maybe they didn't but he was there around 1879, it seems without spouse and family who went to Australia.
