Sharon Brown emailed me recently saying, ” I am coming to Blantyre from Australia later this year and was interested to look at the project webpages as I’m descended from the Lindsay’s who lived at 60 Merry’s Row. I have the attached photo and information below that may be of interest.
This is a photo of Mary Thomson, BIRTH 1831 • Prestonpans, East Lothian, Scotland, DEATH 6 JUL 1922 • Blantyre, Lanarkshire, Scotland
In 1853, Mary married Walter Anderson (b1828-d1900). She died at 60 Merry’s Row living with Cecilia Lindsay, her Daughter. Mary is pictured here with her grandson, Cecilia’s son Andrew Lindsay (1903 – 1919). Young Andrew lived all his short life at 60 Merry’s Row and died as a result of a mining accident at 16 years of age a very short distance away.
