Kate Ann McKinnon born 1890 (on journal). My g.mother Kate wasn't discussed within my hearing as she had a child (Donald) born 'the wrong side of the blanket'. A family disgrace at that time.

Naughty girl or not I am trying to find if she had more children after my Mothers birth (Elizabeth Morrison Ogston, 1915). To date I am unable to trace either her or any family she may have had. She seems to have disappeared after her new marriage to Alexander Robb Christie in 1917.

Bet the answers are out there somewhere.................

Thank you, Elizabeth8

Looking for descendants of Kate Ann Christie. ms McKinnon. Previous marriage to J Ogston.

Kate was born in Elgoll, Isle of Skye, Inverness, Scotland in 1890.

She married James McNabb Smith Ogston about 1913/14. Kate had a son, Donald and my mother Elizabeth Morrison Ogston (born 1915). James was killed 1916 at Mametz.

Kate married again in 1917. This was to Alexander Robb Christie.

I am unable to trace further information about Kate. It is possible Alexander married again in 1944 to a Margaret Reid. Kate may have died by then or they may have divorced.

I would be so pleased to hear if anyone has information about Kate after her marriage to Alexander.

Thankyou.
