Do you have the following possible match for Catherine?

Census: 1851: ED: 23A; Page: 18; Line: 17
Address: 120 Stobcross St., Barony, Lanarkshire
-- Robt McCallum 38 Warhouse [sic] Porter born Bonhill, Dumbarton
-- Jane McCallum 36 born Douglas, Lanark
-- Catherine McCallum 11 born Glasgow, Lanark
-- Malcolm McCallum 10 born Cardross, Dumbarton
-- John McCallum 6, born Glasgow, Lanark
-- Mary Ann McCallum 3 born Glasgow, Lanark
-- James McCallum 5 mo. born Glasgow, Lanark
-- Wm McLellan 30 Warehouse Porter born Kilmaronock, Dumbarton
-- James Milligan 20 Engineer Berer [sic] born Edinburgh, Edinburgh

FYI, There are 4 other Catherine McCallums born between 1840 and 1844 in Lanarkshire, 3 in Glasgow and 1 in Avondale who may also be candidates.

In the 1861 census the most likely looking match for your Catherine [if she had not yet married William] is a 17-year-old domestic servant in the household of Elizabeth Munn, a "proprietress of houses" in Rothesay, Bute. This Catherine McCallum is listed as born in Glasgow. [Reference: ED 19 Page 9 Line 19]

If this is the right Catherine [born about 1844] then the one I gave you in 1851 [born about 1840] is probably the wrong one.
