  General Notes:

No baptism or birth record has as yet been found for Margaret Marshall in the online Scottish records, though this does not mean one does not exist. Not all non-conformist records, for example, are publicly available.

When William Russell died at Dykehead, Shotts parish, in 1861 his death certificate recorded him as "Engine Keeper married to Margaret Marshall".

The 1861 census for Shotts parish recorded Margaret living with her daughter and grandson in Janet Polack's Houses:

When Margaret Russell died in 1863 she was recorded as aged 72 years, and "widow of William Russell Iron Furnace Engine Keeper". Her parents were deceased. James Black, a neighbour who had been present where the death occurred, was the informant of Margaret's death. 3 4
