Hello
I am a decedent of Lillias Lorimer and Matthew Walker. My grandmother Jane Mackintosh Walker (Jean) immigrated to Canada from Lochwinnoch, Scotland at the age of 19, married Frank and had three children - my mother was daughter number two. My grandmother 'Jane' died in 1999 at the age of 91.
My grandmother was one of 10 (or 11) children - Hugh, Agnes, James, Lillian, Robert - I can't remember all the names (though I did write them down many years ago)- wish I could find the list.
My grandmother often told me stories about her GG Lillias who fled France to avoid the guillotine during the French revolution (though why someone would end up in Scotland at this point in history boggles the mind).
My great uncle Hugh died a few years ago (he also emigrated to Canada). We've lost touch with his family - his grandson's last name is Woods. Aunt Lil lived in Galt, Ontario for many years then went back to Scotland. We have relatives in Paisley but haven't seen them for many years.
Cheers,
Kathryn
