Surnames: White | Magill | Carter | Ashworth | Arrowsmith
Andrew says, "Hi! My Great Grandmother is proving difficult to locate and wondered if anyone could help. In 1901 she is living in Denton, England with my Great Grandfather (William White).
"My Great Grandmother was called Minnie White, aged 28 (1873ish) born in Scotland. I have copies of some of her childrens birth certificates and they state her maiden name was either Magill or MacGill, depending on which one you look at. I have found her death certificate which was in 1950. It said she was 76 (1874ish).
"In the 1911 census it says she was born in Falkirk, Scotland and was aged 37 (1874ish). One of her children was born in Ireland in 1890.
"After a lot of work I managed to locate the childs birth in the Belfast workhouse no father named so I know she wasn't Williams and no father named on the childs marriage certificate either. While searching in Ireland I managed to locate Minnie's marriage to William. However, this says her name was Mary Magill and her father was John Magill, this also says in 1892 she was 22 (1870ish).
"I guess she lied about her age for the marriage as if the earlier dates are correct then she was only 18 or 19. I have checked Scotlandpeople but haven't located anything. If anyone needs more info please feel free to drop me a message."
