Hi John

Sorry, I have just realised that I can't send you a PM until you make at least aother two posts.

I can tell you that your grandfather, John, was my mother in law's brother, so I would be able to pass on a great deal of information.  Have you seen a photo of William or Jane?  I can also email or PM those to you. 

Hope to be in touch with you soon!

Hi there,

Can i take an educated guess that your mother in law was known as Nan?

I have never seen a photo of them no, i do have a couple of John though. I think your husband and my grandmother Marion were cousins.

would love to know more.

John

Hi Gordon and John

Just came across the correspondence you both had in 2011  and 2012 with Mary regarding William Stevenson and Jane Robertson.  I am the Great Grand-daughter of William and Jane.  My mother was Marjory, daughter of Ann.  I don't know if you are both still on this forum, if you are I would be delighted to hear from you as this side of the family is a bit of a mystery to us. 

Mary is my auntie, however, due to ill health I am assuming she is no longer using the forum.  Sadly none of the information she gathered was shared with us.  My mum, Marjory, passed away in 2013 and sadly didn't really discuss the family background with me and siblings.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Jackie

Hi folks
I have just been reading the posts about William Stevenson and Jane Robertson.
They are also my Gr Grand Parents.My Grandfather was John Stevenson and my Mother was Eleanor Stevenson Daughter of John.My Mother,s middle name is Jane after her Grandmother Jane Robertson.
I spent a lot of my Childhood at Headrooms of Ord with my Grandparents  and can remember briefly Anne Stevenson my Grandfathers Sister and after my Mother past away I have often wondered what became of that part of the Family.I seem to recall a Family visiting us when we stayed at Orden,s Farm (just down the road from Headrooms) back in the 1960,s and that they may have come from Aberdeen and that the name Marjory rings a Bell.
I have been able to find much of the Stevenson Line of my Family but I too have had difficulty in getting clear Information on Jane Robertson and Elsphet Norrie.
I also have a Photo of William and Jane,s Headstone as they are Buried at Marnoch Cemetery.My own Parents are also Buried there.
I would welcome any other information and can possibly help other,s as well.
                          Thanks
                                     Kenny
