Mary Ann STEVENS

Born at Bothwell in 1843. Her parents were John STEVENS, a carpenter, and Elizabeth SCHUMACK. She married George DENHOLM, the younger, in 1863 at her father's house in Elizabeth Street, Bothwell. They had eight children, but her husband died in 1884 when her youngest was only 4 years old. She lived in a house in Elizabeth Street, on land originally granted to her father, until her death in 1912. Her parents died in 1890 and 1893, so I hope they helped each other. Her youngest daughter was widowed in 1904 and lived with her mother and two small children.
