I'm not sure if we are tracing the same family. I'm having trouble tracing the family of John Bell, who were shoemakers in Perth. His father was James Bell (born abt 1788)and James' parents could be Peter Bell and Elizabeth Maxton. I have found 3 marriages for James Bell at present(all say shoemaker as his occ), but I think John Bell's mom on his marriage cert to Mary Isabella Thomson in 1867 was Mary Karachare (on James' marriage cert it is Mary MacKerracher). They moved to Liverpool after 1871. Any help would be appreciated.
