Biographical notes

Little is known about Magdalene apart from what is recorded on her birth and marriage certificates. She married James Robertson at Dennistoun, Glasgow in 1878. Further research is needed to ascertain if there were children from this marriage (Census records for 1881, 1891 and 1901).

She died in 1942 but some details on her death certificate are incorrect. Her husband James Robertson, is described as a Slater (retired) and presumably outlived his wife. Her age is correctly given as 85. Her father is given as William Pettigrew Gardener deceased (whereas in fact he was a shoemaker, but his son William was a gardener). Her mother is given as Mary Pettigrew M.S. McConnachie deceased (whereas the correct name was Margaret Pettigrew MS McConnomy, and Mary McConnachie was the maiden name of Magdalene's sister-in-law). The informant was Magdalene's son-in-law, David Shark.
