I am seeking the maiden name of "Mary" who married William Walter Anderson in NYC (probably Brooklyn) about 1866.
William was born in Scotland (probably North Street, Dalry East End, Ayrshire, Scotland) in Dec 1840. Emigrated to US in about 1866, settled in Brooklyn, NY. Married "Mary" in about 1866. Died 26 Sep 1902 in Brooklyn, NY.
Mary______ was born in Scotland in March 1850. Emigrated to US in about 1852 (per April 19th 1910 Census). Died uncertain.
Two possible maiden names surmised from records but basically guesses:
1) Mary Stirrat; Maiden name assumed from David Stirrat age 80 on same 1841 Scotland Census as William Anderson - unknown relationship. If true age at birth of Mary approximately 90 could have been great grandfather.
2) Mary Mitchell: In same 1870 US Fed Census as William Anderson is William and Catherine Mitchell with daughter Frances Age 30 listed but no Mary. Very loose connection. Have seen some other trees with some support
