Info re James Martin's death comes from the family gravestone in Parton churchyard.

Note on Wife: Isabella CORSON

15 year old Isabella appears in the 1841 census living with her brother, Andrew, in Balmaghie.

Corson surname is spelled Carson.

I have calculated Isabella's year of birth from the 1841 and 1851 censuses, this is different than that calculated from her age on her death certificate (79 in 1901).
