Robert Wallace Urie 1854-1937
I am researching the family history of this railway mechanical engineer, from his parentage as far back as his great grandparents and forward to his grandchildren.
RWU was born at Ardeer in Ayrshire, educated in Glasgow and then worked for various companies in Leeds, Glasgow and Kilmarnock, before moving to the London & South Western Railway in 1897. He retired on railway grouping at the end of 1922 and about 10 years later returned to Scotland, where he died at Largs, Ayrshire.
Any relevant information would be greatly appreciated.
