red mail Fraser, George 1854 - 1944
I am looking for any information about the ancestors of George Fraser who emigrated to Canada in 1883. George was a horticulturist who started his working life at Christie Nursery in Fochabers. He went on to become a renowned Rhododendron grower and hybridizer in Ucluelet on Vancouver Island, BC. He is connected to the McCurrach side of my family and I am looking for the connection.Help from anyone in Fochabers would be appreciated.
