If possible could someone give me info on a marriage between

Joseph Vine & Margaret McAlpine Oct 1879 South Yorkshire
I'm hoping to find out Margaret's fathers name ??

I've got 2 Margaret's trying to prove they are 1 and cousins marrying each other

Thank you

It is looking more like the 2 Margarets are the same person
but until I get her fathers name I can't prove it

As this is sideways in my tree I didn't want to spend money on a certificate

Yes that is my family

Thomas & Helen had a daughter Margaret 1859/60 Linlithgow

Helen's brother James had a son Joseph 1860 Lincolnshire

These are the two that I think married and are cousins
1911 census Margaret states she was born in Linlithgow
and according to scotlandspeople their was only 1 Margaret McAlpine born then

1911 census Margaret McMeechan Niece 7

looking at my tree I have a Margaret McAlpine McMeechan born 1904 Linlithgow

Thomas & Helen's Granddaughter although it is more like 2nd niece to James & Margaret I'm thinking it looking positive

I think I'll go with it but put a note on my tree until I can Verify it more

According to a tree on Rootsweb Joseph Vine's father was James Vine also born Linlithgow. Joseph's mother was Jane Lawson born Gainsborough, Lincolnshire.
