Have records of census for 1861, 1871, 18881, 1891 and 1901

Will that help you?

Hello, Olaf.

I believe that my father, Donald Hugh Macleod was Catherine Rae's son. He came to Canada in the early 1900's and married my mother, Anne Langley Dewick, from Manchester, UK. Hugh must have been his father-in-law. This is based on the information
on my father's death certificate which I located today. (Sept. 15, 2012) This needs to be substantiated, though.

Hello Alan,
Thank you for your reply, I have had nothing at all on Catherine, I have found out that my grandfather Edward Rae was not a son of Hugh but a son of his daughter Janet. On the 1891 Census it shows Edward as the son of Hugh and Jane Young, it lead me astray as on Grandfather's birth certificate there was no father just Mother Janet, on a lot of postcards only signed by Janet so I was really sure he was a child of a single mother. The only info I have on Catherine is born in 1880 in Cumberland, Carlisle. England and died 1931 Vancouver, Canada. I hope this will open up more info on Catherine. Looking forward to hearing more. My contact is [email protected]
Kindest Regards

Hello Alan,
Due to a fall at work, breaking my wrist, Lyn and I have returned to our home in Buderim Queensland. The new email address is [email protected] hoping to hear more on Catherine Rae. It seems like I have cracked the Gretna Green connection with Hugh Rae. Hugh was a crack engine driver but could not have been the driver of the troop train that collided with two other trains on the 22nd May 1915, firstly he died in 1910, secondly if he had been alive he would have been 79 years old, too old to be driving trains. But, by putting all of the info together, Edward my grandfather was not the son of Hugh but was the son of Hugh's daughter Janet. Janet my great grandmother was referring to Frank Scott, engine driver of the troop train at Gretna Green, Janet must have married Frank Scott and after the death of Frank, married Andrew Johnstone. Anyway looking very forward to what you can send me on Catherine.
Kindest Regards

Hello Naomi,
This is a great surprise to me and what I have hoped to find for many years. I have found it very hard to find the parents of Hugh Rae, my GG Grandfather. I would love to swap information with you, I will send you an Email as well as this reply.
Kindest Regards
