Thanks Wayne. I had posted this earlier but did it incorrectly.

Joseph was married twice. Once to Ann R., she died, then within ten years he married Jane Carney.
 I don't belong to Scotland's People so can't view the document.

 I also want to say thank you for the help on Jane Carney and her marriage to Joseph.

If you come across Ann R's name and her marriage to Joseph, it would be greatly appreciated.

I am using the internet to search but it comes up with nothing. I was hoping to find a free family tree posted with names but no such luck.  Living on a pension does not allow me much latitude for paying for information from places like Scotland's People.

With your assistance I now have more info for my wife and her siblings.

Much appreciated

Thank you Wayne.  I have all the census information from 1841 to 1901 on Joseph.  Do you by chance have any idea what the last names of both his wives were?  He married an Ann R. and had two children then she died between 1871-1881. By the 1891 census he married a Jane and had three more children.  Their last child Alex C, in the 1901 census, was my wife's grandfather. His wife was killed in the bombing of London. I am trying to find any info on the family line as they had nothing here in Canada.

I have tried to find any family tree info for them but nothing is available.

Again, thank you for what you sent already.

There are 4 marriages too a Jane on Scotlands People,i looked at original

marriage record and none are the right Joseph Duncan.

On 1891 census,Joseph 62 , Jane 36 .26 years younger.

I am puzzled.!!!!
