2 Margaret Docherty, b. 18 Aug 1856
He was shown as Edward DOUGHERTY on son Bernard O'Doherty's Marriage Certificate in 1873. Edward Docherty was living at 53 Main St., Rutherglen when his daughter Margaret was born on 18 Aug 1856. He was shown as a Coal Miner on her Birth Certificate.
Edward's daugher Margaret's birth entry of 18 Aug 1856 at Rutherglen in the 1993 IGI shows her father as Edward DOCHERTY and her mother as Ann Johnstone.
Alice Donaghue (nee O'Doherty) told me that her father Tom O'Doherty had told her that his grandfather (i.e. Edward Docherty) used to work on the wharves in Glasgow. Edward's son Bernard's Marriage Certificate in 1873 shows that Edward Dougherty was a deceased Colliery Manager and his wife was Ann Johnstone. Could it be that he died in a Colliery accident at or near Rutherglen? After he died somewhere between 1856 and 1861, perhaps his wife and children moved from Rutherglen to Govan to find work. Perhaps they had lived in miner's house and had to leave when Edward died?

There were a number of other Docherty's living in Main Street, Rutherglen in the 1851 Census.
Edward is not shown on the 1861 Census. In fact his wife Ann is shown as a Widow which means that Edward died somewhere between 1856 and 1861. Ann does not appear on the 1881 Census. Did she die or perhaps emigrate to Australia? Did she remarry?
