Squizzy and George were good mates as well as being, we assume, 'business' partners. Our family is now trying to fill in some of the gaps left from the information given to us from my grandmother, Lillian Geddes McCrae Williamson, Lily Taylors daughter.
Hope I haven't bungled up any dates or names. Does any of this ring any bells to any of you????? We would be extremely grateful for ANY info and help, and we would be happy to supply further details of our family if you are interested. Thanks for your time reading this.
