    WebHighlight 1868  [3, 4, 5, 6, 7
    • Scotland and Beyond shows this John as married Q3 1868 to Rebecca DRYDEN, then a Margaret.
      Further investigations showed that Margaret was Rebecca's sister, and that it was more likely that the John married to these sisters was theson of Thomas & Alison (CURRIE) RUNCIMAN. So the marriage cert. subsequently proved.
      Some trees have John as dying in 1868. As this wasn't in Scotland or England as far as I can currently determine, it is possible that this is a misinput into a database from Scotland and Beyond where the 3-1868 marriage has been interpreted as his year of death.
      John's death cert. has also now subsequently been found, fully confirming the conclusions above
