I have been looking at our family tree and found your request for info about your grandfather. My mother was Mary Croy who I believe was your grand father's cousin. I have the old family bible that my great grandmother had in Stronsay Orkney - It shows the birth dates and names of all her children - One of which is William who moved to Canada (Brandon Manitoba) had two girls Jean and Ingrid and two boys Willian (Bill) and John (Jackie) William Sr. was killed in a horse and sleigh accident in the early 20"s I think . Jean married Sam Chalmers and moved to Vancouver, Igrid married Walter Wakefield and stayed in Brandon, William (Bill) moved to Vancouver and worked up north somewhere. John (Jackie) moved to the US and ended in Palm Springs. All have since died as far as I know. Hope this helps. Dolena
