Title: Peter Sutherland and Elizabeth Gunn
Post by: Anjimiller on Tuesday 19 June 18 06:40 BST (UK)
Iím trying to find living relatives of my great grandparents that came from around the Latheron area.  They had 10 children (I think!) - Alexander, Donald (my grandfather), Jane, Margaret, Peter, George, Elizabeth, Jessie, William and Alexina.  They were all born between 1877 to 1896 in the Latheron area.  I know that a few of them went to Canada but I do not have anymore info on them.

The name Peter Sutherland is also my gg grandfather and ggg grandfather.

I would appreciate any response from anyone that recognises these names.

Many thanks,
Anj
