I am in the same position as Kele-Jane. I have a Mary Ann Morgan who married
David Young. On her death certificate in 1887, her age was given as 76 and
her father was given as George Morgan. The mother's name was unknown.
Mary Ann was born in Longside. At one time I thought that she was the
daughter of Peter Morgan and Isobel Sangster who were married in Longside in
1807 and I have a note to say that Peter Morgan was possibly the son of
George Morgan and Margaret Logan and was christened in Longside in 1786.
There was a George Morgan christened there in 1779 and I wonder if he might
be the brother of Peter and the father of my Mary-Ann. What a mystery.
