I have recently discovered that two of my grandmother's sisters emigrated from England to Alameda in 1908/9. Their married names were Margaret Ann Waldie and Rachel Straughen. The Waldies had a daughter (Rachel Minnie) and a son (John Ernest). The Straughans had two sons (Thomas and William Lloyd) and two daughters (Dora and Vera) The daughters married two brothers caled McClelland! who were from Scotland. I have a little information about these families, but I wondered whether anyone could illuminate further.
