2 January 1865, Isabella McDONALD married Philip Hutton; after Banns according to the Free Presbyterian Church. They are listed in the Civil Register for Lochee, 3rd index of District 282 (Dundee). She listed her residence as St. Anns Street, Lochee, while he lived on South Church Street. Her parents are listed as John McDONALD and Elisabeth BRODIE, both deceased. The IGI data base listed the marriage of her parents on 24 December 1838, Dundee Parish Church, where her husband's parents also wed on 22 November 1833 (Alexander Brodie and Agnes Peebles). Isabella resides in Liverpool by 1871, living next door to her sister Elizabeth (age 20) and brother-in-law James Wadsworth; who married on 2 February 1870, when Elizabeth was listed as age 19. Ten houses down the lane, brother George (10 August 1840-31 January 1906) and his wife Sarah Ann (nee Wadsworth) live with 5 children. The census shows a neice, Isabella McDonald age 1, in the Hutton home. Isabella's sister, Mary McDONALD (1846-1911) is unaccounted for. It is possible that there was yet another sibling, Robert McDONALD, who died in 1848 (26 Oct-3 Nov) of scarlet fever. George McDONALD had an Uncle Neil, perhaps Neil McDONALD. George married on
21 June 1863, in Liverpool, and listed his father as a contractor, deceased. Elizabeth listed her father as a platelayer, deceased. I am trying to trace Elizabeth McDONALD (1850-1929) who lost her parents at an early age, and was raised by two elderly women in the "wilds" of Scotland. When they died, she went to live with her brother in Liverpool at the approximate age of 17. There, she married a man 32 years her senior.
