Selkirkshire / Re: Auld family farmers
« on: Saturday 25 February 17 14:33 GMT (UK)  »
Hello alan14578.
Thank you so much for your information. I do know of this death, it was my uncle David Auld.
He was the first one of my new found relatives that I met when I started my family search, he was my late fathers youngest brother. David lived in Macmerry and we have been up to Scotland to visit him as often as possible. I also have met up with uncles Tom and George and Aunties Margaret and Betty plus six cousins. I have visited my grandmothers grave and have found the memorial grave of my great grandparents and their two sons killed in ww1.
For the record, David Auld is now rests in Gladsmuir cemetary
Thanks to Rootschat and kind folk like yourself I now know a lot more of my family history.
Thank you again for your post
Kind regards
Miss milly

East Lothian (Haddingtonshire) / Re: census look up for william young

Thank you so much for such a fast reply, sorry I did not have any dates but I am trying to work out if my uncles memories of him are of a old or young man.
This is a great starting point as I can now see if he remembers a Mary Young or if the address is familiar  to him.
Uncle Tom did say he had seen a old photograph of a relative up on a horse and cart so it could be him.
Thank you again for your help, if I find out any more details I will post them here.

Hello , I have not been online for a long time and I am still not very good with websites so sorry if I am in the wrong place or if my request is a bit vague.

I have had some poems sent to me by one of my recently discovered uncles , on the top of one of the poems is written " this poem was about my grannies brother " . I have telephoned my uncle as we live to far away to visit as often as I would like . I asked him if he could tell me any more about this part of his (my )family history . He is 91 and gets very excited and confused if I ask to many questions and I wondered if anyone on rootschat can help me.

The real name of the man in the poem is William Young and he was a scaffie ( i looked it up to be street sweeper ) in East Linton but I do not know the dates. My uncle Thomas John Hunter Auld lived in the upstairs rooms of a house in East Linton and his granny and grandad lived downstairs .

The poem is called the presentation and was written by Robert Anderson.

Any new information would be great.  The worst thing to hear was my uncle Tom was given a family tree , he can not remember who gave it to him but sadly he said he thought it was full of "tinkers" and he destroyed it.  :'(

Hello again, I have some more information on great grandparents and would now like to find how many children they may have had and who they were ect. Please  can somebody point me in the right direction so I don't waste more credits looking in the wrong places.
So far I have:
John William Auld married Catherine Hunter Johnstone????
Thomas Auld married Marion Denholm Young at Cramond in 1891(05 June)?
Thomas Auld married Ann Leitch in Bathgate in 1963(20 March)?
Thomas Auld married Elizabeth McKenzie in Colinton 1837 (09 June)? 2nd marriage.

Any information on these people and there offspring would be very much appreciated, or any clues as to where to look for them.
Many thanks in hope.

Hi , Thanks for the information so far.
I have found out  John William Auld was born 26-02 1899 & died in hospital of throat cancer in 1965 but can not find a date. John is said to have had a shop in Edinburgh  sometime after 1955 but I do not know what sort of shop. He was cremated so I need some help to find where his ashes ended up.
John & Catherine Hunter Johnstone married in 1922 on 22nd February, again I can not find out where.
Also would anyone have any idea as to why Catherine had not taken the name Auld ? ???

Thanks ev, wow that was fast!!
I think it may well be the midlotian  one, as I think john remarried & some of his family disapproved .
It was not spoken about so it has been hard to get any information.
Thank you again , it looks like I may find some ancestors at last. ;D :)
