I have found more information and am hoping someone can lead me further on the path to recovery...(I am working on several other avenues but this has been my best source to date for reaching others)...
Anyhow here is the basics -
My Father is Frank Francis Duthie.
My Grandfather is Frank Francis Duthie, Senior, and was born in either St Cloud, Minnesota or somewhere in Scotland on July 02, 1882.He married Annie White of Utah and then later Audrey Finch of Montana.I have documents that reference naturalization 1886-1891 from Canada.
I have found a reference that shows Frank Duthie Senior had several brothers and sisters from his fathers first marriage.They were:
Mary Duthie who died in Wisconsin and married a Delebraux; Robert (Bob) Duthie who died in 1956 in South Dakota; William F. Duthie born December 16, 1870 in Mary Kirk, Scotland and died February 20, 1940 in Idaho; Bell Duthie born in 1875, died in 1942 in Wisconsin and was married to Brodie.
My Great Grandfather was Francis Duthie, first marriage was to a Catherine Cargill and then later to a Mary Smith (this second marriage had four children - Linden, Oliver, Etna, and Flora).
What I am attempting to do is find any and all references to both my Grandfather and Great Grandfather and establish where in Scotland we came from since I will be traveling there in the spring of 2002.
Any help would be greatly appreciated and also names of anyone who could help me in Scotland narrow this search down.I want to find my roots for both my father who did not know any of this information and my four sons...thanks in advance for any assistance given....Shawn Duthie
