I have a relation called Moses Pettit who after some years I am fitting the pieces together but I have hit a brick wall and I don't know how I can get over it. His wife is known as Ann/e from UK census 1861 until 1901 birth place has been recorded as Glasgow or Lanarkshire or Scotland NK. I now know that Moses was a soldier in the 24th regiment of Infantry/Foot 2nd Warwickshire 1st Battalion and that they were stationed in Glasgow in 1843 where in Glasgow i do not know. Ann would have been born 1825/6. I have tried looking everywhere for a marriage to findout her maiden name which once got I would be able to research her line.His regiment was stationed in Ireland and they had a son called James Pettit born in Rathkeale, Limerick Ireland. I cannot find them in 1851 census either.Moses was discharged out of the army in 1850. So would love tofind out more about this regiment in Scotland and did they get married in Scotland or Ireland. Any ideas would be grateful.
