Anyone have Photo's
I am shooting a long shot here.
If anybody has a photo of any person belonging to any of my family names or
the places where they lived
I would like to arrange for a copy to be sent to me.
If a cost is involved then I will cover any expenses.
In Perthshire, Scotland the CRICHTON family lived in Alyth,
My 3x great grandparents were William & Margery (called May) and both
are buried in the Local Cemetery. William was a well known farmer and from what I have learned
a very well educated man who did good work through his local church.
Most of their children emigrated to Australia. John to Williamstown, Victoria
Sons William & James settled in the Tumut/Adelong district of NSW.
Sister Jane lived in Tumut then married Stephen Fisher & settled out around the Bourke area of NSW.
Sister Jean married John HENDERSON in Sydney NSW and they had 6 children, 4 girls & 2 boys.
