William Telfer, Cummertrees.
« on: Tuesday 25 July 17 15:01 BST (UK) »
I have a William Tellfer b1814 (approximately) in Cummertress. He died 29 Feb 1888 in a place called East Middles? I think he was married to an Isabella Scott.
I would love to find out who his parents were and siblings are.
I do have his children etc.
