We would like to add to our family tree.

David Wilkinson was 76 years old when he died in Cape Town, South Africa on 1 October 1915.
Place of birth is stated as Aberdeen Scotland.
Date of birth is thus estimated as 1838/1839.

Noting her complexion, I wonder if this is the son and wife.

Thank you, so much, Carol. Outstanding repair of the pic.

We have found this portrait in the family loft. The pictures of David's son Frank David was recognised by his grandchildren. I have realised that it was pictures of an older person.
Noting her complexion, I wonder if this is the son and wife.

Malky
We know that he was in WW1 and have received several medals.
He was 42years old when his father died in 1915. Could the portrait be a younger Frank David?

Is it possible to see if there is a resemblance, if I loaded a pic?

My pleasure...I would say it is highly likely...they both have the same downward turn at the tip of the nose.

Of course, I am interested.
I'm very thrilled about this.
The years actually coincide with my dates. The young 13year old David is very likely the family member I'm referring too.

I am now contemplating the possibility that they came to South Africa as a family.
