red mail Coull/Barclay
We are trying to find the correct birth information for a James Barclay Coull born in Turriff around 1916. Perhaps 1919. His mother was Christina Pratt Coull, married to George Coull in Turriff. (perhaps 1917) Christina's parents were Elizabeth Barclay and John Barclay. Christina's birth date is not known but believed to have been around 1894. She was born in Turriff. It is believed that James Barclay was born before Christina's marriage to George Coull. We are not sure if Christina was previously married to James's father and was widowed in WW1. We believe that James Barclay was adopted by George Coull after his marriage to Christina. Does anyone have information about the Barclay family, specifically Christina? George and Christina migrated to New Zealand (Taranaki) and both are buried at Stratford cemetery.
