Moody Blue Report 11 Sep 2012 10:31

Anne, I do not know just how much to believe and that is why I am trying to prove/disprove whatever.

On Thomas marriage certificate 1855 on previous page it says that both Allan Mark and his wife Isabell are deceased.

On Helens marriage certificate it does NOT say that Adam Mark is deceased but that his wife Mary nee Phillips is.

On Janes marriage certificate 1862 to James Reid her age is 23yrs making year of birth 1839 which connects to the census both in Scotland and in Utah.


I dont want to give any untrue info and that is why I try to check on it.

Some of the info has bits that are correct but a lot more is sort of twisted around the truth but have found that before with many Lds info.

Hi Moody Blue,
The info posted above looks right.
Allan Mark and Isobel Brown were both on the 1851 census but are not found after this.
Son Thomas Mark married in 1855 staing both parents deceased.
Therefore Allan and Isobel both died between 1851 and 1854.

Helen Mark daughter of Adam Mark and Mary Philip
This looks right too
Adam and Mary were both on the 1861 return,
Mary Mark maiden name Phillip died in Calderhead, Lanarkshire in 1863.
Adam and some children only appear in 1871.. (no Mary)

Therefore, when daughter Helen married George Scott in 1867, the info is correct.
Father still living and mother deaceased ( in 1863)

There are too many threads here and although relevant info is beng posted by us all, it is being missed in the long list

Yes Moody, that's the one from 1871 where NO wife in household and concurs with death of Mary in 1863
We were both posting our info at the same time

Ignore previous query, have just got this from Support at Genes Reunited:-

"Unfortunately it is not currently possible to link the same individual so they only appear once in your tree, eg you have cousins who married each other, or 2 sisters who married 2 brothers. You will need to add these in as separate individuals"

James,
I found a bit more info:
Family of Alexander Mark and Mary Jane Allan
They arrived in Townsville, Queensland, Australia on 24 Oct 1883 aboard the
Eastern Monarch from Glasgow
The party consisted of Alexander, his wife Mary Jane, son Adam age3, and daughter Mary age1 ( guessed she was Scots born)

EDIT: MARY MARK was born 8 SEP 1881 FAULDHOUSE, WEST LOTHIAN

Interesting:
Look at the dob for the 1st Australian born child Isabella.
16 Oct 1883 !
This child must have been born en route, 8 days prior to arrival.
The birth was registered in Queensland but does no neccessarily mean she was born there.
( I have a birth in my own tree registered in NSW. but I also have the birth record ....Place of birth "Atlantic Ocean")

Son Adam b 1880 definitely arrived in Australia with his family.
There is no trace of him on any Australian electoral roll, nor can I find a death?

Daughter Margaret b 1885 was married to someone called Palmer but I cannot find a marriage for her

Australia Death Index, 1787-1985 about Margaret Palmer

Death Place: Queensland

Mother's Name: Mary Allen

When I found Alexander and Mary Jane on Australian Electoral rolls they lived in Kennedy, Queensland

Son Allan b 1894.
I am certain that his is his marriage.
This couple lived in Kennedy Queensland

Morning James.

This thread is getting more complicated as we go along..

I looked athe Irwin link you posted and it just doesnt make sense to me

"Marriage (1): Jane Mark on 1 Dec 1866 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake, UT, USA then
Marriage (2): Mary Mark on 7 Jan 1857 "

How can the date of the 2nd marriage be earlier than the first..??

That being said I have been chasing after the PA Sagar's and have had some slight success..and a couple of nightmares after finding some Scots Sagars .."Samuel and Eliz".in the same area as Samuel and Malinda....its as well we had the 1900 Cenus with Ann E Scott to clarify we were on the right track or it may have been the case of screaming and yelling back to the drawing board.

The 1910 Census PA shows Malinda (Wid) living with her g daughter Jennie Miller (16).

Jennie is the daughter of Phillip Miller (1874 Germany) and Angeline Sagar (1877 PA)

Phillip (Coalminer) and Angeline married in 1894...The 1900 Census shows them living in Elizabeth Twp.

Remember the Henry Glancey and Mary Ann Glancey ( ?Clusker) who were witness' on the MC.

Well I found a Henry Glancey who travelled out to his brother James 1923 living 93 Mary Street NJ..
Henry was aged 36yrs married and a Bricklayer he was still there without his wife 1930..
On the Ship's manifest (The Celtic) he gave his wife as "Helen" Glancey living New Stenhouse Street C/Beath

Dont know if he was the same Henry who married Mary Ann Clusker beath 1910..??
