Hi
James Manson came from Orkney, He met Annie Scott who was from Hamilton and settled in Govan, their first child was born, but died. They then moved to Port Glasgow where the rest of the children were born. My grandmother, Annie was the oldest and she married John O'Neil. They had 4 chidren then Annie died in 1928. Her sister Mary died in 1929 from child bed fever however the child survived and was brought up by James and Annie (grandparents). Then my mums dad died in 1930 and their children were sent to a home. Annie's siblings are: Jessie married Thomas James. Douglas married John Deatcher. James not sure if he married but he could be the one known as Murray. Mary who died after child birth. Helen married John Ross then John Tait. George who I think married Mary Docherty and Margaret who married John Nixon and William Porter. The child born to Mary was known as Nan Cooper and I think she emigrated to America. Hope this helps Rosina
