    INCORRECT:The SA Genealogy BDM Register states a clear record of a marriage of James Dawson McLean to a Marion Pearson. The thorough search of ANY EXISTENCE OF A MARRIAGE TO A Mary Ann Gravestocks or Gravestock or Mary-Ann or Maryann or Mary Anne all fall on nil records. So highly unlikely that there was this marriage at all or even a second marriage. Original SourceS need to offer clarity on WHY they thought it was a second or alternative name as without sound rationale it is HIGHLY unlikely. Nil evidence found. Sound evidence found to Marion Pearson. Researcher Lorna McLean 31.10.2017

      As no page number is offered. This has poor validity of evidence. I have found no entry to suggest this marriage at all. In over 8 different registers and Trove there appears no evidence to support this suggestion of a marriage. There is ample strong evidence of a marriage to a Marion Pearson.
