Searching for more information about Charles McKenzie (born 10 Sep 1824 in Saltcoats), son of Gilbert McKenzie. His mother is not mentioned on his marriage record.
Charles married Elizabeth Tyrer in Liverpool, England in 1844, at the time he was listed as a “mariner”, and his father Gilbert is as well.
I have read a couple other posts about a Gilbert McKenzie who was a sailor from Saltcoats who married either a Mary Dobbs or a Flora Campbell, but no one mentioned a son named Charles. I cant imagine there were multiple Gilbert McKenzies in Saltcoats who were sailors having children around the same time..
