Re: About time!!
Yes, it is about time!I am descended from the REIDFORDs of Banffshire, as well.My mother was a REIDFORD and descends from William born 1697 and Isabel Lourance.They married in Grange, Banffshire on 23 July 1724.
All information I have was sent to me by my 4C1R Alan Morrison, who lives in Glasgow.Alan is doing a one name study of Reidford.
In checking the files, I do believe your Maggie Reidford ....born 8 March 1891 daughter of William Reidford (1863-1942) and Maggie Wilson (1870-1953), who married (5 Dec 1908)George Wilson born 1866, son of William Wilson and Annie McGregor .... to be my first cousin twice removed (1C2R).That would make her first cousin to my grandfather, John Reidford born 1900, died 1974.She is 3C1R from Alan Morrison.I have no descendents listed for Maggie, unfortunately, so Alan may wish contact with your wife to list them.
William Reidford and Maggie Wilson married 21 June 1890 - other children: Lizzie (no spouse listed), Elsie (married Frank John Calder) & Helen Robertson (who incidently also married a Norman Wilson!).William's father was also William and his mother was Elizabeth Tough.Have a little more information regarding them too.Also am in touch with some other distant cousins who descend from the Reidfords, with connections to the Pirie, Ingram and Gammie names.
I am in Canada.Are you in Scotland?I lived in Scotland many years ago and was just there for a holiday, June 2001.Any Reidford in Scotland ... (and England??) ... is a relative of ours' and there are many.Have also found quite a few in Alberta, and British Columbia, Canada, who are positively related, as well.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
