Tuesday, November 18, 2014 Marion Sneddon Lively (1905-1982)

Marion Sneddon Lively born on 15 January 1905 at 11 Park Street in Blantyre to James Lively and Elizabeth Muir Brodie. Her father was a coal miner and the family lived in Dixon's Rows, miners' housing owned by William Dixon, Ltd.

In 1906 Marion's father died of injuries after being trampled by two runaway horses and a lorry on Glasgow Road. Her mother died four years later of tuberculosis. Her three brothers were sent to England to work and Marion was adopted by John and Rachel Hawkins of Bothwell. The couple had been married 8 years but had no children. John Hawkins was a coal miner. A contact through this blog, told me Marion was called May Hawkins after she was adopted. The house in which she and her adopted parents lived had two rooms with at least one window.

On 2 November 1928, Marion married David Gibson at the Manse in High Blantyre after banns were published and according to the forms of the Church of Scotland. Marion was a domestic servant and lived at 73 Broompark Road in Blantyre at the time of her marriage. When the marriage was registered with the Blantyre Registrar, Marion used her birth name. I do not know if the couple had children.

According to a granddaughter of Henrietta (Patterson) Morrison, Henrietta was raised by David and Marion, they were her aunt and uncle.

Marion Sneddon (Lively) Gibson died in 1982 in Blantyre.
