red mail ALLAN, Euphemia
seeking details of GG Grandmother who was born in Glasgow in 1830, appears on the 1851 census then appears on marriage to James Thornton in melbourne, Australia in 1852. She is listed on the Scottish census of 1851 as a Dressmmaker living in Claythorn street with a sister and a friend. There do not appear to be any emmigration records or details. We are wondering if perhaps she went to USA first and then to Australia. Euphemia and James had a large farm in Victoria, Australia, gave birth to 13 children, 3 of whom died as infants. She is buried in Navarre, Victoria, Australia. Any information on her departure from Scotland and arrival in Australia would be much appreciated.

Does Capt Isler ring any bells with anyone? I don't know his nationality, where he was born, lived or died. I also don't know if Capt refers to a Naval or Army rank or from what country.

red mail Rennie Mary/James Cochrane
My Grandmother was Mary Rennie born in Creetown around 1900. The story I got was that her mother became with child due to an involvment with a gypsy and well, Mary was on her own at 12 in Glasgow. She used to attend the Spooks (spiritualist Church) and claimed to be a medium. I believe her..she was my grandmother. She Married James Cochrane, year unknown. James worked in a foundry and later became a bookie and did very well, having a car and a driver and all. Mary had six children with three surviving. Jean, My mother, her sisters Catherine and Elisabeth. Apparently James was a bit of a ladies man so Mary took her daughters and moved to Toronto Canada. I think Mary's friend Mrs. Mac Hudson came with them. I remember her,she stayed with them for a while, great big woman. My mother said she hads cousins in Austrailia, lifegaurds, and in Canada, soldiers, and in the USA. must have been from her Cochrane/Walker side, of course. Mary and her youngest daughter Catherine were pastors at a Spiritualist Church in South Western Ontario until Mary could no longer keep it up. My aunt Ina still is a pastor there. Did I give too much info here? cheers!
red mail Cochrane James
James Cochrane was my grandfather born about 1900. He worked in foundries then later as a successful bookie. He wed Mary Beattie , orphaned, originally from Creetown, and had three daughters.

He had brothers or sisters as my mother said she had cousins in Austrailia, Canada, and I met a relative from the USA. about 30 years ago. Not much to go on ..but I don't see many Cochrane's listed. I don't have information going back further than that.Thanks!

Parents - Charles and Mary (nee Hill) Nordell.

red mail four sons born 1781-1794 to William Forman & Barbara McDougall in Glasgow
I'm searching on the possible half brother of a gggg-grandmother. The best candidate so far is Alexander Meldrum Forman who was born 1794 in Glasgow to William Forman (stocking maker) and Barbara McDougall. William and Barbara had married in Perth in 1781 -- I think it was William's second marriage, and that he'd had at least one daughter previous to that, Jane Forman or Foreman, in Shilbottle, Northumberland. Three other sons were born to William and Barbara in Glasgow: John (1784), Robert (1789) and George (1791). I don't know what happened to them. The family seem to have been weavers and to have lived in a series of weaving towns/communities including Calton, Callander, Barrhead and Neilston. Alexander started out as a weaver but got his medical license in 1820 or so and practiced as a surgeon and chemist thereafter in Glasgow till his death in 1869. He married twice (Anne McIntyre in Calton in 1817, then Catherine McDonald, b. Callander, in Glasgow in 1832). None of his children seem to have survived. He was president of the Swedenborgian church in Glasgow till his death.
The Glasgow German Club circa 1900
My great-grandfather, Alexander Thomas Assafrey (b. Reval, Livonia, Russia - now Talinn, Estonia -, in 1844) joined the Glasgow German Club some time after his arrival in about 1870. He must have spoken Estonian and Russian as well as German (his brother Christian, who remained in Livonia, printed books in all 3 languages), but presumably there were few Estonian or Russian speakers in Glasgow at the time. I assume it was at the German Club that A.T. Assafrey got to know his much younger German-born friend Eugen Schultzen. Does anyone have ancestors who belonged to the German Club? I'd like to know more about it.
Eugen Schultzen
My father Eugène Watson Rodger (b. 1910) was named after Eugen Schultzen, a German Jewish immigrant to Glasgow, who was a friend of his mother's family, the Assafreys. The 1901 census shows Eugen Schultzen living in a boarding house at 7 Abbotsford Place in the Gorbals, and working as a stockbroker's clerk. Subsequently he made a lot of money and was well-known for befriending young men, to whom he was known as Uncle Eugen. I believe he lived in London during the 1930's. When the Second World War broke out, he rashly decided to return to Germany, although he had been naturalized in the early 1900's. As far as I know, he was never seen or heard of again. Can anyone help to fill in the details of this story? Or even explain Uncle Eugen's decision to return to Germany?
red mail Drummond

Gemmell family
My great aunt Ruby Assafrey of West Bank, Partick Hill, Glasgow, was married to William Hartl on the 12th September 1899 at Saffronhall Church, Hamilton. One of the witnesses was Jeanie Gemmell.
