Hi again,

I am in California - the other side of the world to you!
But I grew up in Fife, my dad was born in Auchterderran
and most of his family's descendants still live there. I was over
in July/August for 6 weeks with the family.

My gran's sister Beatrice married Edward Walker Herkes and they
emigrated to NZ in 1925. I am in contact with their only
surviving son and his family in Auckland.

I've traced the Fleming side back to Thomas Fleming and
Christian Harvey who were married in 1802 in Markinch Fife.
However, I've managed to trace Christian Harvey's side back to
Robert Horseburgh born abt. 1650. The name Shank(s)
actually came from the Patterson side of the family.
Shanks Patterson was born in 1765 Auchtertool,
the son of John Patterson and Christian Turnbull.

Anyway, don't want to write too much on here. Will give you
everything when I hear from you.

All the best,
Eaine

Hi Kate,

Me again. I just realised why I knew that name - he's in my tree!!!!!

I have Shanks Fleming married to Marion Millar 1851 Abbotshall, Fife
They had 10 children.
Their daughter Christina Fleming married a Andrew Clark who was born in
Auchterderran.
I found 4 children for them:

1. Shanks Fleming Clark. b. 1885 Auchterderran m. Mary Walker Herkes on
16th March 1906 in Dundonald.

2. Jane Clark no other info

3. David Fleming Clark who was killed in action in France 25th June 1918 WWI

4. Marion Clark b. 1881 Abbotshall

My connection is with the Herkes side.
My grandmother's sister married Edward Herkes who was Marion Herkes nephew if that makes sense.

Let me know if any of this tallies with your info.
Look forward to hearing from you.
Elaine

Hi Christine,

Wow! We seem to have opened a can of worms here!

No, David Herd is not a relation of mine but I may have
a photo of him somewhere.

Where do you live?

Dont mean to intrude here, between Christine and Elaine, but Ive just noticed the name Herd crop up, in Auchterderran? Almost all of my Herd ancestors come from that place and I also have a branch of the Herd tree who were the Patersons. I have a guy in my tree called Shanks Paterson. This sounds like quite an uncommon first name and if you have it in your tree, along with some Herds, makes me think there is a link somewhere!
Look forward to hearing from you both
Regards,
Matt :)
