Fife / Anne Wemyss ms. Valentine
« on: Tuesday 29 December 20 15:08 GMT (UK)  »

I am hoping someone can help me find where Anne is buried or her obituary .
 All I know is that the cemetery is somewhere near Dunfermline as I visited it as a child .

Anne died on 17Th June 1948 at 15 Kirkgate Dunfermilne  which was her home address .  Her husband James Wemyss was the manager of The Abbey Public House and I believe this is where she died .
James did remarry and died many years later .
I have contacted several places in Fife trying to get this information including their bereavement services but they have never ever replied to my requests.



Hi ,
   I am trying to find more about Henry  born 1885 and his brother Young born 1881 in Liberton Midlothian sons of James Marshall and  Margaret Davidson.
I believe Henry went to Illinois --  did Young go with him?
