Risk Ancestry Glasgow Scotland

This morning, I visited Glasgow's Southern Necropolis (near to the Gorbals) and took a video clip of a memorial to Christina Risk and her four children. The latter all dying at relatively young ages although not untypical of that period when Glasgow was experiencing a population boom and was rife with disease and poor sanitation.

  • Christina Risk died May 18th 1876 age 74 yrs
  • Daughter, Christina Jan 24th 1837 age 13 yrs
  • Daughter, Elizabeth May 20th 1843 age 11 yrs
  • Son, William Sept 27th 1843 age 9 yrs
  • Daughter, Ann on Oct 28th 1848 age 23 yrs
