  • Notes 
    • Euphemia, our sister, at father's death in March 1849 (then being 28 years of age) removed to Folkestone to her brother, David, and retained at the same time the house in Arthur Street, Greenock, and continued in Folkestone until the end of that year, and returned to Greenock to see old friends, and look after the furniture etc. on the old house there.

      At this juncture, Mr James A Hardie, foreman moulder where our father had been (Messrs Scott, Sinclair and Co. Foundry, Cartsdyke, Greenock) and old acquaintance and an esteemed friend with everyone who knew him, stepped forward and proposed to marry Euphemia, which was at once agreed to, and they were married at Mr and Mrs Chambers' house at the West Breast, Greenock, on New Year's Day, 1st January 1850. This was a happy union and in the year 1853, in the month of October, they removed from Greenock to Dumbarton, Mr Hardie then having in partnership a Mr Gordon, started a new iron foundry there. After some trials at the outset of their business, years of prosperity, peace and happiness were granted to them, though not without personal and domestic afflication, and after many months of suffering from a complication of internal dis eases, she passed away from this life trusting in Jesus Christ, on the 22nd August 1866, aged 45 years, and a memorial stone is erected over her mortal remains in Dumbarton Cemetary, leaving a sorrowing husband and five sons and one daughter, whose names are as follows: Euphemia, born 27th January 1851; died 26th June 1855. Thomas, born 29th July 1852. David, born 24th December 1853; died 31st Dec ember 1875. Margaret, born 9th November 1856. James, born 24th April 1858; died 21st October 1893 in New Zealand. Walter, born 22nd December 1859; died 9th January 1860. John, born 11th February 1862. Gordon, born 2nd October 1863. Euphemia (Mrs Hardie) died 22nd August 1866. Mr James A Hardie died 14th June 1876.[Source 1207]

      Born in public house, Clyde Terrace, Glasgow. Married at Mr & Mrs Chambers house, West Breast, Greenock. Buried in Dumbarton Cemetary.[Source 1629] [3, 4]
