Thank you to Norma Marr for sending this nice photo and incredibly the envelope and letter still intact from 1911. Sent to relatives in Canada, this photo features High Blantyre families from that year.
The people are known to have lived in the Auchentibber area and are part of Normas ancestry line. From left to right are Frances MacFarlane, Frank MacFarlane, James Downie, Margaret Downie Patrick, Mrs Patrick and John Patrick with his pipes. The wee boy is one of Frances’s sons.
On social media:
Below is the inscription from another grave In loving memory of our dear daughter Francis Patrick who died 2nd May 1911 aged 6yrs also or dear son Edward Patrick who died 28thJan1916 aged 2 yrs also our dear son Alexander Patrick who died 2nd Sept1940 aged 20yrs MacFarlane in memory of Alexander MacFarlane with deepest sympathy from his fellow workers
Every MacFarlane seems to have Patrick as their middle name.
