Mabel YOUNG (1906-1998)
Notes by EP.
I have researched as much of Mabel's granny's family as I can through the Scotland's people's web-site. Her granny was Mary Ann Banks, nee Cormack. She died in 1924, not 1922 as Mabel's notes suggested, at the age of 70. She seems to have lived at 27 Trinity Crescent after the death of her husband. The 1901 census shows her with boarders.
Their eldest daughter was named Helen, but seems to have been called Nellie - certainly that's how she appears in the census. Henry was called Harry.
There appear to have been 5 children in the family - Mabel refers to 4, but then names David as a fifth. David was born in 1885, but doesn't appear on the 1901 census. I can't find a death record for him on line, so I don't know what happened to him.
