Family Events

Event Type Date Place Description
Marriage 3 MAR 1850 Glasgow


In the 1881 census they were living at 31 Scotia Street, Glasgow. Visiting them was one Jane MC Sweet aged 58 probably Jane McCulloch Sweet, James' sister.

BUT interestingly, Samuel Sweet who was the informant for the death of Catherine Sweet (Robertson) reported his address as 31 Scotia Street, supposedly her son , perhaps he mumbled grandson! But still I have no sight of him on the 1881 census or a birth /death for him.
