Re: John Crockett Caesar Tinwald Scotland
Fascinating to get your reply!
So, it seems that your Grandmother, Dorothy, was my Grandmother's cousin. Her Father, William who died in 1923, was a lawyer and lived in Bathgate, Scotland. His relatives on the Caesar side all seemed to think that America was the place to be, and I can only guess that Edith Winifred thought that too after her husband's death. Sam Caesar had gone to Denver ( and amazingly there is still a living daughter of his, living in Denver, Colorado called, funnily enough, Winifred), Robert Caesar went to LA ( thus perhaps the reason for Edith Winifred making her way there), as did Henry Caesar, who was a chemist. David Caesar went to Newport, Rhode Island and Jo caesar went to San Remo. !!
William Caesar's brother, my Great GrandFather John Crockett Caesar, was a banker and ended up as the Chief Cashier ( director) of a Scottish Bank. My Father remembers him clearly, as does my uncle - both remember him as a warm, intelligent and very funny man.
My Grandmother, Margaret Caesar ( your Grandmother's cousin), married my Grandfather, John Walker in 1930 ( died 1979), producing my father in 1931 and Uncle ( whose middle name is Caesar) a few years later. My Grandfather was a business man, running an Iron Foundry. The rest of the family have now moved to various parts - England, Australia( where my cousin lives and whose middle name is Caesar) and of course America, but I remain in Scotland and am a lecturer at a University here. there are branches of the Caesar family still in Scotland but I have no direct connection with them.
I think that I should photocopy all of the family tree on the Caesar side for you, so that you can fill in some of the gaps. How fascinating to hear of Edith Winifred, her children and subsequent generations!
