He married Euphemia Saunders in 1848 in Dundee and is on the 1851 census living at Camperdown Court Dundee, occupation seaman. I can find no other trace of hi...

Re: adair and wilson

Thanks for the suggestions. I had actually downloaded then census record with Douglas and did wonder whether they had both remarried without divorcing but had not actually considered whether or not they actually married in the first place!
