Thanks Mary that is great...A step forward to solving this mystery. John Clarkson was my Great Grand Father. He married Elisabeth Penman in Dollar.They had quite a few children mostly in Inverkeithing, Fife where my Grandmother Marion Miller Clarkson was born. They then moved to Bathgate West Lothian where my Granny Marion married Walter James Hamilton.They had 4 daughters, my mother was the 3rd daughter. When Elisabeth Penman died my mother Marion Miller Clarkson Hamilton looked after John Clarkson. He was the Burgh Foreman in Bathgate. My mother then married George Roberts, a policeman in Bathgate.I have had emails from 2 other relations through genealogy sites who also were trying to solve this mystery. Do you know of any other ancestors of Grace Frood/Fruid Thomson and what about William Clarkson Who was he???
Any other help would be extreemly helpful. And if you want more details, please let me know. Thanks again Marion Millar Clarkson Bennett(nee Roberts)
