MARGARET SHANKS DUNLOP I was in work when I requested this look up and didn't have all the relevent papers with me. I am home now and the one you found me isn't her. I now have parents names for her - John Dunlop & Mary Dunlop (Johnston). Hope this helps. According to marriage cert her father was a Farm Foreman. Sorry for wasting your time before.

Please could you do look up for Thomas Whelan married to Margaret and lived in Larkhall, Thomas was a coal miner. They had a son James b 1877, he would be aged about 3 or 4. Sorry but I do not know how old Thomas & Margaret was at the time of the census. If I discover anymore information, then I will update. Thanks so much Debbie
