I'm now posting this in Scottish Resources owing to no response! Please see this link regarding an old book I've got.

Hi, well it's the Scottish equivalent of "Who's Who". It was the first publication of its kind in Scotland &  there was a copyright problem. The title of this book was going to be "Who's Who in Scotland". As expected with a book like this, the entries mainly refer to the well off members of society. Having said that, there's plenty of ministers mentioned,as the Editor of the "Fasti" of the Church of Scotland,1915-1928 advised & helped with the production .
I'll gladly do lookups of anyone who was still alive in 1938!

Hi,and welcome to rootschat!
I've had a look and there's only 2 Farquhars,neither in Lossiemouth.They are;
FARQUHAR,Arthur Murray (Adml.Sir),K.C.B.,C.V.O. of Acheron,Aboyne and
FARQUHAR,Rowland Chapel,6 Hill Place,Arbroath,Angus.
Can you give us more details on your Lossiemouth Farquhars? I'm sure someone on rootschat will be able to help.
Regards,

Thank you so much for replying.

I would like to locate any of their children. I believe that they had a son, also named James Farquhar (possible middle A). He married a Gladys Barber in Gravesend, Kent, England around 1937. They had a son, also named James Farquhar. I believed that they divorced and she came to Canada around 1947, on the Aquatania with her son.

I do know that James and Gladys lived in Lossiemouth during their marriage. No one seems to know whatever happened to James Farquhar (whom married Gladys). I will see if I can find any other information.

Thanks again for taking the time to reply.
