Looking at the "W" in the word woman, I'd go with Cowan.

Is it James Milne for the man and James Cowan for the woman?
Agree with Milne

Suggest perhaps Cousin for second surname

Regards Crowsfeet
Thanks, that sounds more likely :-)


I agree  :)

Now I'm agreeing with you  :D
Lawrie name in Fife (and elsewhere) with all its various spellings.
