Hi

Valuation roll for 1925 has an entry for a James Retson in Eastriggs and there are various articles which come up for a James Retson in the Dumfries and Galloway Standard for a farmer of that name at Gardrum, Eastriggs.

Article 26 Sept 1917 has a William Retson Watt up before the JP'S for the theft of garden produce-article titled "Dalton Raids".

Hello ev and Rosie17

Thank you very much for this information but this these are the wrong people.  They are relatives to these children, not the ones that I am looking for.

Hi I know the family you are looking for William Watt is my mother's father. We have his birth certificate which reads William  Retson born June 10,1899 place of birth 82 Alexandra Parade, Glasgow. And his sister is Elizabeth and brother is James. I can't seem to get registered here so please contact me at my email address until I can figure out how to use this site.

I don't know how to get a message to you. This is definitely my grandfather you are looking for and his siblings. William changed his last name to Watt I have a paper saying that's the name he grew up with. If you are on Facebook I go under Linda Smith Simpson. I am wondering why you are trying to find them. My mother knows all about the family. I live I Deux Montange Quebec as did my grandfather until he died.  I pray this message gets to you.  Linda

Hi Linda

Welcome to Rootschat  ;D

Your email address has been removed from your reply for your own internet security.

Oletta has been online today, most probably as a response to receiving an email notification that you have posted a reply on her topic.

I'm afraid you must be patient and wait for Oletta to reply to your post.

Maybe she needs to find some paperwork.

If she has not replied in a few days you could try sending her a personal message.

There's more information here
