Adam Macleod
« on: Sunday 05 May 13 17:43 BST (UK) »
Looking for information on an Adam Macleod who was a grocer.
His wife, Isabella Laing, died in Halkirk in 1962.
Does anyone know if he had a shop in Halkirk and if so when he stopped trading.

Certainly such a shop in Halkirk in 1920 - see Caithness Field Club Bulletin (1994) on Caithness website:

Thank you.  Very interesting history of that time.  Sad thing is I can remember much of it....chaff beds, paraffin lamps, etc. !!!

Have now found that Adam and Isabella had a son, Adam, who died in June 1983.
Anyone out there who knew Adam Jnr. and can give me any information about him.
