Hi Jean

I am descended from your James, sister, Marion and share the same interest in researching the McLarty’s.  So will therefore keep a close eye on this thread.

Best wishes (cousin)!

Yes, I have googled an image of St James and think that you are onto something there.

So the 'O' could be 'Order'.

St James ... Order

Thanks

Add, just noticed there is a definite shape on the hat which I think is a cockleshell which he is associated with wearing on his hat

Hi,
This mid 19th century button has the letters St (saint) J S O.

I thought it would be easy to find out what they stood for, but am struggling, any ideas gratefully received!

Thanks

I see you have undertaken some research on the McLarty's in the US as well, I just saw the reply on the disappearing McLarty post first.  Nice to see our research matches, including the discovery of the presidential nomination, how cool is that!

I am descended from James sister Marion McLarty who married Anthony McCall and they owned a couple of bakeries in Ayr.  I believe one of James son's another Malcolm worked in the bakery, for his Aunt and Uncle.

Scotland / Re: The disappearing McLarty..

I dunno how you found that, but I am very impressed and pleased to make acquaintance with a distant cousin!  ;D

I have undertaken a lot of research on Malcolm and all of his sons in the US, two of them Samuel and David served in the Union Army.  Samuel was a captain and David was a prisoner in Andersonville.

Great to get the generation back another step, thanks for posting.

The Common Room / German Poem ? (Translation help needed)
« on: Tuesday 03 July 18 12:15 BST (UK)  »
Hi,
I was recently given some old family docs and this was amongst them, which I think is very beautiful.
I would love to know what it says and have tried typing the words into a translator but several variations are coming up and its difficult to know which is the correct phrase etc.

If anyone fluent in German ever comes across this, would be v grateful for your interpretation.

Thanks

Hi,

Please could anyone get the word that follows 'Honest and .... ' towards the end of the writing?

Thank you
