Notes
General:
John and Cecilia's daughter Rebecca married in Canada (she had gone out to join her brother),her husband had already 'joined up' to fight in WWI. Rebecca was pregnant and, on hearing that her husband was missing, set off for Uk (and Scotland to her mother's) to but then David Robertson died at the beginning of 1916. Cecilia with her two small children Caroline and James (Jim) plus Rebecca and William left for Canada to join her son Alex and wife Mary. There they remained and Cecilia died in the early 1940's.

Thanks for your message. Your great grandmother Agnes Gair was the sister of John Gair who was married to my wife's grandfather's sister Cecilia Ramsay. They married on 5 Jun 1885 at Rosebank, Denfield, Arbroath, Angus. We do not have the date of John's death but it was before 1894. He may have died in the USA. Cecilia then married David Robertson who was the widower of Sarah Gair (sister of John and Agnes) in 19 March 1897 and they went to Canada after their daughter Caroline was born. Sarah Gair died 7 July 1896 in Monifieth, Angus.
