I am trying to find more information about James Dunlop b. 1812 in Glasgow, Scotland. His parents were Thomas Sheriff and Marion Malcolm or McComb. He had at least 2 sisters and probably more siblings. The sisters I know are Marion b. 1804 and Mary born 1806. I don't know if they married.
James married an Isabella Montieth (nee Brown) - her 2nd marriage - in 1846 in Edinburgh, Scotland. I don't know if they had any children. Her parents were Thomas Brown and Jane nee Monteith
In the census for 1861 they have a Mary Ann Dunlop aged 6 living with them and she is listed as a niece. Her parents are John Dunlop and Mary Ann (nee Nisbet).
On the death certificate in 1859 for Mary Ann Dunlop the undertaker is a James Sheriff - is it the same one?
On the death certificate for Isabella Sheriff the informant is a John Dunlop - 2nd cousin. Again I wonder if it is the same John?
Any information relating to James and Isabella or their parents/siblings would be great.
I am also interested to learn the connection between the Sheriff's and Dunlops as the middle name Sheriff has been given to many of my Dunlop ancestors.
