Francis Danks and Catherine Orr - Shotts, Scotland
comments powered by
I am descended from Elizabeth Orr whose sister Catherine married Francis Danks about 1823 in Shotts, Lanarkshire. (Their banns were proclaimed 13th April 1823 in Shotts parish church).
Elizabeth was my GGGgrandmother; she married Daniel Robertson, a blacksmith in Calder Bank Iron Works, originally from Perthshire.
The Orrs had been farmers in Shotts area for several generations.
If you want more info about the Orrs, just say so.
