Can somebody with better eyesight than me transcribe the below death certificate.
Daniel McFarlane -Iron Stone Miner, Married (first colum is ok)
Died March 1857 (unsure of date and address)
Parents were: Daniel McFarlane (Iron Stone Miner) and Janet McFarlane (M.s Smith)
Cause of death???
In the Southern Necropolis in Glasgow (sadly this is the book with severe water damage - although I'm assuming he is in the lair with his father and siblings at this point - the lair he himself owned).
Informant ? McFarlane, ? Servant... Possibly Marion McFarlane (his step mother?)

Happy to hear opinions with someone with better eyes than me.
Thank you in Advance, Joanne forum.jpg

Joanne, this site reduces the resolution of all images posted. I saved the image and it's only 395Kb and I can't read it. Images from SP are usually 3-4x that.

The images needs to be on a site where you can post the link to the image. Eg save it to Photobucket or any similar site or cloud or whatever.

Marian shows as a widow in 1851 ?

Marion appears as a widow as her husband had passed. See my prior post titled - Daniel McFarlane - Paisley, Renfrewshire, abt 1794. So his 1841 Census date where he lists his Birth year 1804 was out by 10 years.

This Daniel McFarlane was the son of Daniel McFarlane and Janet Smith.
His address on the burial registers show he lives at 26 Society Row, and and appears in the census 1851 at 26 Society Row - although there was a typographical error and his name is transcribed as David.

Last time I asked they said they could not rescan and gave me the 6 credits back.

Anyway, this site still cuts the images to about one quarter of the original.

I have the same family in my tree but different branch.

Looking at the names of both sets of children and assuming a rough following of the usual naming pattern there are no birth/baptisms on SP for Daniel that look to have much chance of fitting - none of the following: Andrew, Dugald, Ann, Elizabeth.
