Some Colour plese for my Great Granny Mary Malcolm
« on: Tuesday 08 January 19 12:08 GMT (UK) »
Please could someone give a bit of colour to my Great Granny - Mary Malcolm - She was born in Dundee in 1860 and died there in 1945. I was given this photo by a cousin last year and it was the first time I knew what she looked like.
Thank you all.

Thank you very much it certainly improves her.
She had a very hard life. Married at 19 in 1879 and had 13 kids by 1903. By the time she died only 6 were still alive. Mary could not read or write.


Can't thank you enough.

Thank you so much Carol. Both versions are lovely.

We could never make up our minds who my daughter looks like but there is definitely a resemblance
to Mary - her 2 x great grandmother.
