My gt gt grandmother was jane Bell born 1829 in gavingill, Kirkbean, Kirkcudbright. She married Thomas Toolan on 30/6/1850. I have drawn a blank trying to find out more about her parents or where she lived. Any info welcome!

From the Scotlandspeople web site a Thomas Toolan was born in Scotland in 1828. I have run out of credits but you can find the detail at scotlands people.
