you should be able to get the marriage certificate.
It looks like I've found a distant cousin researching the same family.
Alex and Jean Wiseman in Aberdeen email: AWis270261@.... They are
related to John May and Jane Stephen living in Burnhaven, Peterhead
during 1851 census, children John age 22 Rathen, William age 20 Rathen,
James age 15 Rathen, Joseph M. age 10 Peterhead and Eliza D. age 6
Jean is my 5th Cousin and have been extremely helpful, I'm sure they
would look forward to hearing from you.
