I'm hoping someone can help me obtain the death record of Jane Walker Nelson from the Paisley Poor House, if there is one. She was born in 1815 and died on February 19, 1900 at the poor house according to Scotland's People death record. Jane's parents are William Walker and Margaret Scabbie.

I believe Jane's first husband was James Murray (married in Bothwell Parish) and then she married Daniel Nelson (also in Bothwell). I am a descendant of her daughter Margaret Murray who immigrated to the U.S. in 1867-8. At some point Jane Nelson returns to Scotland and Daniel disappears.

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
