Thank you Forfarian. Yes we have my wifes maternal grandparents certificates from SP as well as names of their parents, marraiges, deaths.

Unfortunately she does not know the age of her mums sibling who was killed only that she believes it was a girl.
A long shot but worth a try.
thanks again

Hi, I am trying to help my wife find out a bit more about her mothers family.

My wifes mum was Pearl Sinclair born 1931 died in 1960 (in the TB Sanitorium Bridge of Weir) aged 29. My wife was only 2 when Pearl died.
 Her (Pearls) father was George Alexander Sinclair and her mother Margaret Black. They lived at Highholm St. Port Glasgow.
Pearl had one sister for sure, called Elizabeth known as Bessie, now deceased.  My wife knew her aunt but had little contact.
My wife thinks there were more siblings of her mothers, almost 100% sure. She was told the storyr that one of her mothers siblings was killed in an accident involving a Tram.
Sorry this is all she has to go on, perhaps some of you good people can find out more.

thank you inn anticipation

Hazel, thank you for your message. As far as I can be certain the relations posted on rootschat are my wifes relations. I believe other members of her extended family have also researched the Rowe connection and found it to be accurate.
Edward McCafferty (born in Scotland) 1864 married Fanny G Rowe (born 1873 Newton Abbot England) in Greenock Renfrewshire Scotland 30th Dec 1891. Fanny died in Greenock 8th April 1912. it would seem Fanny Rowe had four siblings, all males. 3 born in Plymouth and a younger sibling born in Greenock. PM me if I can be of further help
kind regards

thank you for your reply. I had completely forgotten that I had posted on this subject before, your link referring to my previous and your mention of Tait and Brass has confirmed much.

Hi, one of my great grandmothers was born in Orphir Orkney 1850. She died in Greenock 1904

Her father was John Bews (Seaman) born 1819 Stenness and her mother Eliza Wishart Tait born 1824
they married in Firth and Stenness 1849'

I have a lot of names for Eliza Bews siblings, however, I am not sure how accurate they are.

Can anyone provide more information on my great grand mothers family?

kind regards

Hi seaweed,

thanks for the info. I see my uncle Ralph (the photo subject) has medal ribbons on his uniform, so I assume he served during the 2nd WW.  :)

He was born in Greenock, Renfrewshire. His surname Clarke was his stepfahers name. (at birth he may have been registered as Cairns or Hamilton).

Looks like this photo was taken October 1953, by the calender.
