red mail MacLeod - Stornoway
I'm new to this site and wondering if anyone knows anything about my grandmothers family. Her name was Flora MacLeod & was born on 3rd November 1917, her parents were Donald & Annie MacLeod. The address i have from her birth certificate is 28 Builnacraig, Stornoway. Donald's Profession/Occupation on the birth certificate is Cooper (Journeyman). My Grandmother had 5 sisters & 5 brothers they were, Anne - no information known Margaret - got married but had no family Carrie - Possibly lived in Glasgow in late 60's 70's with sister Anne/Margaret? Katie - Died young of what i have been told was Brain fever, she fell in playground Dena or Dera - Died aged about 16 of galloping consumption/ TB (not sure if name correct) George - known as Geordie who was a Seaman Donald John - known as Dolly John father to annette, George Wm & Morris/Peggy Callum - Died 1947 he was burnt badly in a ship fire in Melbourne (possible ship name Minneosa) Kenneth/Kenny - Chief Steward on boat at sea, when he got home one day he got to the front door and died sadly. 1 Unknown name brother died young possibly? My Gran had a daughter called Joyce who now lives in London. Sadly for an unknown reason my Grans parents were told that she had been killed in a train crash that happened in Crewe, England. My Gran found this out when she came back to Stornoway in 1973 as old friends were totally shocked to see her as they thought she had been killed. Whilst back on the island she stayed in a relatives Hotel or B&B i think but do not know the name of it. My gran married Frederick Woodroff and lived in Swindon Wiltshire, they had a son David & a daughter Maureen (my Mother). My Gran, Grandad & David have all died now and my mother & auntie Joyce are the only living relatives. If anyone is part of the family or knows anything about the family please could you contact me i would love to find out more about this part of my family as this is all i really know. I have been in contact with George William MacLeod about 4 yrs ago and he gave me some good information, but not in much detail e.g dates of birth, death, adresses, marriages etc.
