George Stewart and Bethia Campbell

I have been making small inroads into the transcribing of The Stewart Family of Glasgow onto the Family Tree page. Still a chunk to go, but it has been fascinating getting an understanding of the conditions the family lived in around 1875 - a single room with window for a George and Bethia and their 8 children.

The older lady by the range is thought to be Bethia Stewart (nee Campbell)
alongside her daughter-in-law Annie Stewart (nee McKnight).
The dog is not named in any record so far discovered.
I have looked up Flemington Farm Houses in Cambuslang on Google Earth and they still exist - the buildings probably dating from mid 1800's. 64 Mill Street in Rutherglen also exists as an address, but the 1871 dwelling has been replaced by a more modern block of flats.
