Nancy Loe is related to daughter Mary and has provided the additional material for this family and the link to James + Esther Nicol [J11] as Thomas' parents. See under J11 for a copy of the full information she provided on this family.
I have found Thomas' death registration on the Scotland's People website. This confirms his parents and lists him as a retired fireman.
John Cowie sent details of son Alexander, his marriage to Elizabeth Cowie and their family.
Nancy Loe has since done more research on the information she was provided with for this family and has written the following:
"...I find no evidence of the phantom Jane, with whom he (Alexander) supposedly fathered a daughter, Jane in 1861. I did find an illegitimate Jane Mutch b. in Oct 1860 in St. Nicholas, who is the daughter of Ann Mutch. Alexander had an older sister, Ann, but I suppose there is no way to prove this is our Ann for certain, but I think it's more logical than Alexander as the father."
This seems likely as a Jane Ann Mutch is living with her Grandparents Thomas and Elisabeth in the 1871 census.
Nancy Loe has revisited this family and decided that the information on a son George born February 1851 in Old Machar is incorrect.
I have removed his record from the database.
