red mail Martin family Canonbie
My G.Grandmother stated in the census that she was born in Canonbie, I am unable to find any information relating to her. Her name was Mary Martin born about 1860/1861, she was married to Josiah Clement ( or Mac Clement). I have not been able to find a marriage certificate and rumour has it they were not married but she took the Clement name. Would love to hear from anyone that might be able to solve the puzzle.
