Great Site, I continue to look for information on my great grandfather who was born there in 1841 his name was also David Shaw and his wife was Agnes Wallace who died April 1 1897 , My son and myself as well as my sisters visited Catrine in 2010 and totally enjoyed it. Beautiful place and very warm inviting people. Great fish and Chips

Greetings Rab,
I truly enjoyed reading and viewing your site. You have done a wonderful job!
I am searching on behalf of Valerie Wilson for information on her grandfather, Thomas Campbell, who lived at 18 Riverside Crescent, Catrine in 1946 (for sure) and was still alive in 1956 when his daughter (Valerie's mother) died at age 29. Valerie was aged 5. We do not know her grandmother's name whom we believe died years prior.
If there is a newspaper archive would it be possible for you to find his obituary or provide me with a contact? He was born around 1900 and assume he is deceased.
Thank you so much for any information or links you may provide.
Ellen, Ontario, Canada

Hi Rab,

Not sure if you can help, I have discovered that most of my Ancestors on my father’s side were born in or worked in Catrine ,

I believe that my Grandfather “James Anderson” nickname Tartan Anderson worked on the railways as a carter, I think this is a horse & cart delivery for the railway station.
He was born in Wood Street Catrine in 1892 and died in Catrine on 1928.
When he died his wife moved to Darvel with Mary her daughter and her two sons James & Hugh were brought up by Michael McCluskie in Catrine.

Any info or details about Tartan Anderson would be great
Thanks

Jim Anderson

Hi Rab
Great site.The 1928 school photo has * * * Roxburgh named.* * * was my father and I'm sure thats not him.* * * would have been 7 in 1928.
I'm almost sure it's George Roxburgh my fathers elder brother who died when he was 20.
Brings back memories seeing the old faces.
Keep up the good work.
Brian

Admin reply: Thanks for the info Brian. I changed the name. Must try and see Bob Meikle to see if he has any memories of your uncle.
