Margaret Jane Ballance was my grannys aunt. Her dad was called George Ballance, his wife was Mary(known as Minnie.)George's parents were James and Sarah Jane (nee George).

Between them George and Minnie had 14 children. Minnie had 5 to her first husband, John Scott who died around 1905/6/7. Alexander, Mary, Samuel, Jane and Sarah (the Scott children).
James born 1907 died 1909, Agnes born 18/12/1909, Isaac born 1912 died 1913, Annie 06/05/1911, Martha 25/05/1914, Evelyn{my granny)01/02/1916, Charlotte 20/04/1918, Dorothy31/03/1920 and Letitia16/07/1923.

My aunt Charlotte Mckee is 93 and in very good health. Minnie died in 15th Oct 1948 and George died 5th May 1969. My granny died 05/02/1995, then Agnes a few years later, Annie a couple after that.

My Aunt Dorothy(Dora) died on the 12/12/2007. my wife(Julie) and Aunt Letitia (Letty)and I where with her in the Mater Hospital.

My Aunt Martha died on 14/03/2008. My Aunt Letty on the 11/12/2010. Again, my wife and I were present together with my mum(Rita,) her cousin Joan(Charlotte's daughter) and Joans Husband Victor where with her in R.V.H hospital.

The Scott and Ballance children never saw themselves as step brothers/sisters. They where just one happy big family. Minnie always had a large pot of soup on the hob and often fed the street. She looked after everyone in it.
Minnies sisters lived in the same street as did Georges dad and his brothers. One of Georges brothers, Albert married Minnies sister Annie(LIVINGSTONE).
