MCQUALTER, David Marriage

  • Wife: Janet HUD
  • Marriage Date: 22 Apr 1789
  • Recorded in: St Quivox and Newton, Ayrshire, Scotland
  • Source: FHL Film 1041404 Dates: 1783 - 1819
  • Source Information: Batch No.: Dates: Source Call No.: Type: Printout Call No.: Type:

M119632 1761 - 1820 1041331 Film 6900404 Film Sheet: 00."

This is not a later marriage for David, husband of Margaret McIllwrath, as she was a widow when she died in 1830.

When I found this in BVR a couple of years ago I kept the info in case it was the marriage of an earlier son of David and Margaret.(First child we know of born 1775.)

If he is a son born of the Dec 1771 marriage then he would have been only 17 when married in 1789. Maybe he was an older antenuptual child or maybe not their son at all.
