You say you are a third gr. grandaughter. Is that of Archilbald Hart and Helen Reid. If so, which of their children are you descended from. My gr.gr. grandmother Marion Barr Hart was married to Duncan McGregor Sr. just about 8 years before her death. Which seems very bizarre to me,considering all the children she bore him out of wedlock. I do not understand why they married so late into this long term relationship, especially as to social difficulties Marion as well as the children would have experienced at this time period. Considering how uptight Victorians could be,especially in such a small area where everyone knows each other.
I am also trying to ascertain if possibly Duncan was married to someone else at the time and possibly had another family, this could explain the late marriage, but so far I haven,t come across it,otherwise no logical reason for the late marriage. If you have any info.or corrections to either the Hart tree or McGregor please feel free to contact me.
