Hello all,

I'm looking for any information about my paternal great grandmother.

What I know so far:
- She is shown as 'Elizabeth' Wilson nee Docherty on my paternal grandfather's marriage certificate, dated 31st December, 1931.
- She had at least three children, my grandfather, John Wilson, who married Annie Kirk in Carmyle, Glasgow in December 1931. John Wilson was born on 7th July, 1906 in the district of Kinning Park, Glasgow. My grandfather had an elder brother (William, born c. 1898, who married a lady called Jean) and a younger sister (Annie, born c. 1908, who married William McLeary and had two daughters, Sarah and Annie )
- She is shown as 'Agnes' Wilson nee Docherty on John Wilson's birth certificate, which also shows that John's father was William Wilson and their marriage date as 3rd June 1898.
- She is shown as 'Lilian' Wilson nee Docherty on my grandfather's death certificate. Family discussion suggests that she was known as Lilian within the family (my Aunt Emily was to be called 'Lilian' when names were being discussed).

Family lore:
The story is that Agnes/Lilian/Elizabeth was northern Irish, and had run away from home before marrying my great grandfather. She disappeared from their lives around 1909 or 1910.

Any help with tracing further detail would be much appreciated.
