This refers to Jim Houston managing the farm for years as his father before him did.
     

Jim Houston was my uncle. My mother , his sister, Dorothy Agnes Houston . She immigrated to New Zealand.

Ancestry DNA test results tell me I'm quite closely related to this family!! And certainly they seem to have lived around Kirkcudbrightshire, Scotland, where I come from and still live near! I'm researching as many of the older people as I can to try and ascertain what the link might be. I seem to descend from the couple who are Mary Mundell Houston and Peter Little, Mary being the daughter of Jane Houston d 1911 ( only a few miles from where I was born 43 yrs later! Delighted to find this thread and all the information. And I'd love to hear from any one of this family.

Thank you so much, that's great. Amazing how they started here and have spread out across Canada, NZ and goodness knows where else.
