Could you have a wrong name? Has the person who has transcribed the above information into the database got it wrong? Or, maybe, there is no connection to your lady?
I am a distant cousin of John Beveridge, and the many Beveridges of the Stevenston area. My great-great-great-grandfather Samuel Smith married Elizabeth Beveridge in Stevenston in 1821.
You did ask, didn't you?

I'm back to Henry Beveridge 1773 and Janet White 1774.

The Agnes you are researching is my paternal Grandmother. Agnes married my Grandfather in 1920- together they had 2 daughters, and 2 sons. William raised Agnes and John Beveridge's daughter - Margaret H. Beveridge. Their son Edward died at age 5 while my Grandfather Wm. Breckenridge was working in Canada in 1925. He returned to Ardrossan, and moved them to Detroit, Michigan where my father was born. I have all of the information on Agnes but was not informed of the sad details of his death, but excited to have a picture of the man my Grandmother loved first.
