Looking for Mary Devine
We are trying to trace relatives of Mary Devine who lived in Rose Bank Tower, Cambuslang.
It is believed that Mary served as a councillor and perhaps a mayor for Cambuslang and may have died around 1988/89.
Mary had two daughters, one named Marion the other thought to be Moira who it is thought worked at Woolworths in Cambuslang.
Mary also had an adopted son, Edward (Eddie) Devine who was from Sunderland, he married Ellen Gillian and together had two sons Edward and Bernard, before moving to Mansfield, Nottinghamshire.
Eddie died in 1985 when he was 47 in Mansfield.
There are relatives in Mansfield that would like to get in touch.

A class war and an act that has been criticised by human rights advocacy groups.
I’m fed up of weak SNP politicians who toe the party line and do what they’re told.
So come on Clare Haughey tell us - do you support the football act, a simple yes or no? Elizabeth-Anne Callaghan (a discriminated Football Fan) Freeneuk Wynd Cambuslang
Moreover, you ‘confirmed’ that the SNP did not say in their 2011 manifesto that they would end unfair council tax.
Thing is Mr Andrew, the quote I used in my letter dated, 30/03/2016, – “… produce a fairer system based on ability to pay to replace the council tax” - was taken directly from that manifesto.
It is on page three under the now ironic heading – “Wealthier and Fairer”. A D Moffat Rutherglen havens have led to developing countries losing some 20 per cent of tax revenues.
However, the problem is greater than this, with corrupt elites in developing countries funnelling wealth offshore, while these countries are mired in poverty.
Oxfam estimates that tax havens cost poor countries £170billion in lost revenues every year, with rich Africans having £500billion stashed away in offshore accounts.
To put this into perspective, that’s enough to save four million children’s lives and pay for education for every child in the continent.
The UK has an opportunity to change this, should it desire to do so.
By closing down our network of 17 tax havens in the crown dependencies and territories we have an opportunity to take a moral lead.
Banks must also be made to open their books and reveal the true beneficiaries of shell companies. International companies should be pursued for the tax they avoid.
The current controversy extends well beyond holding a few rich individuals and corporations to account, it strikes at the very heart of the current global imbalance and the complicity of the West in ripping off the global south.
Let’s use this as an opportunity to curtail this distortion and end a situation that sees the wealth of the few imperil the livelihoods of the many.
