Thanks Emeltee.

I didn't have that 1861.

That is one of the 2x Walter abt same age.

Looking at the deaths.

MCLUCKIE
WALTER
62
1875
487/ 66
Polmont

No other death to 1920 with an age that fits.

So, if the one born 1813 Shotts died in Polmont in 1875 then witness Walter in 1860 marriage for the John in my tree is ... ??

2x Walter and both with father = Alexander

Only one found in census and only one death in Scotland that fits.

So Walter the witness to 1860 marriage remains a mystery. Not John's 13 year-old son.

Currently revisiting 'M' in my tree so back to this one.

I would expect the witness to be John's brother Walter born abt 1814, not John's 13 year-old son and not the Walter born Shotts.

However only one Walter born abt 1814 in census and only one death found that fits.

Back to 'M' in my tree.

I still think the witness has to be the brother but only one Walter seems to exist in the records.

Another Walter not in my tree.

Walter b. 22 Jul 1813 Shotts, Lanarkshire
Alexander McLUCKIE & Janet LIVINGSTON
MCLUCKIE ALEXANDER & JANET LIVINGSTON/FR792 (FR792)
06/09/1812
655/
30 300
Shotts

If that Janet died before John's birth, assuming his father remarried [another Janet].. Walter and John would have different mothers. Have you got the marriage for Alexander Mc and Janet Allan?

Walter transcribed as Natter/Netter in one census but still only one found. Should be two deaths after 1860.

Death 1875 McLUCKIE WALTER 62 Polmont 487/ 66

That's the one born Shotts.

Yes it is. I only had someone's transcription that a witness was Walter. I wanted to be sure the name was Walter so I just spent some credits.

As I've said, I don't think the witness is John's 13 year-old son and is probably brother not the other unrelated Walter.

Problem is there is no death for Walter, brother of John, in the index after 1860.

How many Walter McLuckie's born 1813 +/- 2 years can be found in 1861 census?


1861
Redding Muir, Polmont, Stirlingshire
Walter McCluckie 48 Coal Miner Shotts Lanarkshire
Mary McCluckie Wife 40 Old Monkland
Alex son 20 Coal Miner New Monkland
Mary dau 18 Dressmaker New Monkland
Isabella dau 16 New Monkland
William son 13 Coal Miner New Monkland
Robina dau 12 Polmont
Jane dau 8 Polmont
Agnes dau 6 Polmont
Margaret dau 1 Polmont
Thomas Hutchins Boarder 0 Lanarkshire
