Trying to find Young

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Hiya I'm trying to trace Elizabeth Young's family. Elizabeth was orginally born in Ireland, not sure where. Her parents were John Young and Jane Scott. Elizabeth married Alexander Lowry and moved to Scotland in 1872 approx with a few children in tow. Elizabeth was born approx 1840, but I have no idea who her parents were. Having trouble locating any record of her marriage with Alexander Lowry. If anyone thinks they may have Elizabeth Young in their tree, please contact me. Thanks.
