Another attempt to solve this puzzle.

Catherine BLACKLEY b. abt 1839 Ireland d. 23 Nov 1915 Elderslie, Renfrew

married 1. 14 Oct 1864 Paisley, Renfrew

Adam McNAUGHTON b. ? d. bef 1871 - a school teacher

married 2. aft 1891 probably

William JACK b. ? d. ? - a general merchant

In 1871 Catherine is in Durham, England, listed as a widow.

In 1881 & 1891 Catherine McNAUGHTON is at 23 Broomlands Street, Paisley with her mother.

Catherine has not been found in 1901 as McNAUGHTON, JACK or BLACKLEY.


Sarah BLACKLEY b. abt 1837 Ireland d. aft 1863

(Second daughter Janet was born on 7 Sep 1863 at Paisley)

married 8 Aug 1861 Paisley, Renfrew

William JACK b. ? d. ?

William should be in 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881 and 1891 census. Possibly 1841 and 1901 as well.

Looking for a widower who is a merchant if that helps. Lots of William JACKs. :D

Please see if a few bricks in this wall can be removed.
