William McLaren Perth
« on: Monday 22 June 20 00:30 BST (UK) »
I have attached a picture of a gentleman who I believe is William McLaren. My grandfather was born illegitimate to Jane Kennedy in Stanley, Perth in 1877 and I believe William is possibly the father. Has anyone seen this picture before? My guess is William was born about 1851. Jane was born in Redgorton, Perth in 1854. Trying to find the father of an illegitimate child is somewhat challenging and I am hoping someone has seen this photo and can positively identify the gentleman and perhaps give some info regarding his birth etc.
Regards
David
