Hello

Hello

I've been told that I have quite a few family members in Eastlands cemetery, the Laidlaws and the Templetons.  Alexander Laidlaw was born 27 June 1879 and died 23 April 1948.  His father was William Laidlaw and his mother was Mary Alexander.
Also Jane Tweedie Laidlaw who died in July 1945 aged around 60.  There may be a William Laidlaw her son there as well.
Also Jack (John) Templeton born around 1917 and Adam Templeton born 10 December 1892 and he died in the 1950s.

Hope you can help.  Thank you.

After Birkel's kind offer in his post in May there doesn't seem to be any replies to these queries - unless they have  been by personal message although I didn't receive one. Perhaps he is no longer looking at this site?

Hello

I just received a personal message from the poster.  I believe that you will get a response if you send a personal message rather than posting a request on the forum according to the message that I received.

Hope this helps.

Hello Josephine,
  I wrote to you on 15 January abt. your inquiry on the Oliver family. I  am wondering whether you and other people are receiving my emails.
  On the above date i wrote:
  I viewed the Old Ladhope Cemetery CD. The names with the dates you gave me there are no listings of them. This CD lists only people that have headstones. There are four people listed with the last name of Oliver ; Edward (1801 - 1882), John  " no date listed", William ( 1836 - 1880) and Robert (1838 - 1910). I have been to Galashiels on three occassions and have been to Old Ladhope, it is a very cemetery.
  I viewed the Eastlands Cemetery CD. There are 25 people with the last name of Oliver.
  Please let me know whether i can help you further.

          Kevin

Hello Mike,
  I am writing to you in response to your 11 November 2010 inquiry of the Paterson family. I believe my email on the same date did not was sent to you.
 The email read:
  I viewed the CD on Old Ladhope Cemetery. Thomas Hislop Paterson (12 / 27 / 1809 - 1 / 16 / 1877 has a headstone there. He is buried with his wife Helen Bearup.
  There are other Paterson members which have headstones at Old Ladhope.
  Please let me know whether i can help you further.

Thanks for your offer! I have a grandmother that emigrated to the US in the early 20th century. I have no information on her past only that she gave a burial site to her sister, Agnes Weir Allan, in 1961 in Galashiels, Scotland. I don't know which cemetery and I don't know when she died. Her maiden name is Weir so I would assume she is buried in some kind of family plot with other Weir's.

Any information you might have would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much for your time.

Hello,
    I checked the CD's of Old Ladhope, Eastlands and Saint Peter's cemetery. Did not locate any Agnes Weir Allan by her maiden or married name.
    She may still be interred at one of the cemeteries since these cd's only show people that have headstones.
