You need to use Scotlandspeople website, pay to view or search trees on here for others with his parents/ grandparents in their trees.

Unlikely that any relatives will stumble across your post.

Try searching trees on this site to see if you can get a hit. There are two with Mary McGarrity in their trees with Coatbridge.

Have you looked on friends reunited to see if the address is listed or facebook.

Good luck with your search :-)

Hi Julie,
As I have a vey large Jackson line in my tree, I had a look at yours but there is no connection.

As far as I can see Mary McGarrity and Andrew Jackson married in Coatbridge in 1899.
Were Andrew's parents Benjamin Jackson and Martha Gutteridge?
This couple were English. but all or most of their chidren were born in Scotland

There are a few trees on Ancestry with family of Andrew Jackson and Mary Hill McGarrity
According to this, son Andrew was born in 1907 and died in 1973.
He was the youngest and only son of 4 children and some of his sisters marriages are on the tree.
Is this info that you already have?

As Julie is a fairly new poster, I will send her a friendly message on how to return to her threads. :-)
