I've just checked all the names I have so far on the snedden tree but I don't have them at the right age to be these witnesses. My Janet would only have been 3 years old then. Have you had a look through the link Alan put up for Douglas Grant's tree in a previous post? If you click on the father's name it takes you back a generation and you can see all the siblings names.

Good luck,

Helen

All you Stanners descendants - you've even got your own registered tartan.



http://www.tartanregister.gov.uk/tartanDetails.aspx?ref=10096

This tartan is for the use of the Stanners family who lived in Grangepans, Bo'ness, West Lothian, for 200 years. It is for family members, relatives and anyone linked to the family by marriage.

Meggy & Helen,

You mentioned James Stanners, the son of Thomas and Christina Stanners, brother of Janet Williamson Stanners and Margaret Stanners, and that he emigrated to the US.

I think I've more info on that, have sent a PM to both of you.

Hi,

Does anyone have any information on the stanners/keenan family?

I have researched back until Malcolm Stanners in the 1700's until Jeanie Stanners (born about 1880) who married my great grandfather Hugh Keenan.

Hi, welcome to Rootschat!

I've had a quick look at my information,but can't find any mention of Keenan. One of Malcolm Stanners's descendents was James Finlay Stanners Bell who was my relative.

I'm sure somebody out there will be able to help you further!

Good Luck
