Elizabeth Clayhills Herd married John Kerr Weir supposedly in 1865.  Cannot find the record anywhere.  They were apparently married in the Kingston area & ordered a rather expensive book several years ago of marriage records trying to find her.  

Elizabeth Herd returned to Scotland for the birth of her first child & on her birth certificate it shows she married her husband in 1865 (very unusual).  Next you can find in them in Manhatten Census (1870?) with her husband.

Later she is shown on the Tweksbury deaths with her correct parerts name.

I'm going to guess that they got married in the same location that their first child was born, Barry, Angus, Scotland.

Thank you so much.  Will check out Scotland's People site to see if they are listed there.   Did not do that originally because we believed they were married in Canada around Kingston, Ontario.  Could not find them.   My girlfriend & I both looked for them on this side of the pond on every site we came across.  Always thought they married in or near Kingston, Ontario & Elizabeth returned to Scotland to have the child before coming back arriving in Manhatten (2nd child born in Manhatten).  Thought she returned home as her mother was not well.  Off to check out Scotland's People.  Thanks again.
