Hi James,
Your tree is missing Felix Clusker.
He married Agnes McMahon in Uphall in 1890

Not sure about this as his age is out, but this appears to be the family of Peter Clusker who married Maggie O'Donnelly in Denny, Stirlingshire in 1896.
( I suspect Maggie was married before?)

Thanks Anne,

I have most of the information for his siblings, somehow there is little information on James, I only discovered him when I was looking at other Clusker marriage on SP and noted who his parents were on his marriage certificate and thought I have those parents on my tree so decided to look further into James.

Wishing You A Very Happy & Prosperous New Year

Can anyone assist, I am trying to find information on the birth of a James Clusker, he married a Mary McDade in 1884 in Fauldhouse in Scotland, the marriage certificate shows his father as Patrick Clusker and his mother, I can't read it clearly, I think is says she was a Susan MacLare.

On the 1901 Census for Scotland he is living in West Lothian and his birth place is given as Ireland. I am trying to confirm his date and place of birth and that his parents were Patrick Clusker and Susan MacLare.

Best Wishes & A Happy New Year to all of you who voluntarily give your time to help us amateurs :-)
