Mary Jane McMaster born in England
Gretna Green does not have record of marriage that I could find.
Have birth record for Andrew Mair.
Andrew came to Wisconsin in 1849/1850 with his father, William Mair.
Mary Jane remained in Scotland/England with her ill mother who died shortly after. She joined Andrew in Wisconsin in the early 1850s. All but one child was born in Wisconsin, the last was born in Eskridge, KS where Andrew and Mary Jane are buried.
Family lore is that Mary Jane McMaster came from a family tied to a royal family, not sure if English or Scottish. My question is why the family changed name from Mair to Mears after 20+ yrs of marriage and multiple children?
I have a photo of Mary Jane and her mother but no name for mother.
any assistance greatly appreciated!
