Dunfermline Masseuse married descendant of Edward III in Dumfermline
In 1923 Mary Helena DAWSON, a Dunfermline resident married an Edmund Frederic Herbert SMITH who was a direct descendant of Edward III of England. He was a Petroleum Engineer from London. I have their marriage certificate of 12 Jan 1923. The marriage took place in Mary's family home on Headwell Road. I am thinking that the marriage might have been reported in a local paper, but I can find no mention of it in the Dunfermline Weekly paper. Is there somewhere else I might search? I have searched on Ancestry with no success. The couple fairly quickly emigrated to the U.S.A. where they both died, along with a daughter, conceived several years after the marriage. I would welcome contact with anyone else who is working on the DAWSON tree. Thanks
