William was born abt1838 in Ireland.
He married Agnes Merchant (b abt1843) on 9 September 1869 at Dunbarton, Scotland. Census returns identify three children.
- William Andrew Reid (b1870)
- Annie Merchant (b1871)
- Adam (Addie) (b abt1873) – a sugar beakers clerk (1891)
The 1881 census return records Agnes, a teacher, living in Greenock West, Renfrewshire. I have not identified William after the 1881 census return. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
