Another of my Scottish Women;s Hospitals members.  Sarah was a Nurse in France and Salonika in ww1. Born in 1888.  Seems to have enjoyed travel and after entering the USA the trail goes cold. I am really just wanting to know when she died.    Many thanks Alan

Hi CaroleW,  sorry i should have added that in.  Found her on a couple of sites heading to the USA via Canada in the late 1920.s.  I have her being born in Sprouston.  She was living in Innerleithen in 1922.


Looks like she might of returned in the 1940s as i can see a Sarah Dempster Allan living in Glasgow. But she appears to be in Vermont USA in 1952.  And that's as far as i can get.
Regards
Alan

There is an online tree for this lady but unfortunately no death record. However the address 18 Ormsay Crescent, Bearsden, Glasgow is where her parents both died.

No death on SP which includes her middle name so as she was 70 in 1959 - perhaps she returned to NY and died there
