Mary O Neill write, “Hi Paul, I am hoping you can help me find some photos of my mother’s family, or any descendants from Robert and Elizabeth Henderson (nee Neillans) or Andrew and Agnes Allan (nee Scoular).
My mums name is Agnes Allan, born 1926 at 53 Auchinraith Road. She moved away from the Blantyre area over 50+ years ago and at the time due to circumstances she lost all of her family photos.
Her parents were William and Charlotte Allan, nee Henderson. William had a younger brother Andrew who married Margaret MacBeth (had 3 children Andrew, Margaret and Richard?) and Charlotte had 3 older half siblings Annie who married John Walker Carlyle (had 2 children), Samuel and Robert (not yet found who Samuel and Robert married) and her younger full siblings were Jean who married Andrew Toole (had 4 children Andrew, Ian, Mary and Robert), Elizabeth who married James Reddiex (they emigrated to Brisbane and had 4 children Robert, Helen, James and ??), Agnes who married Mark Brownrigg (had 1 child Mark) and John who married Margaret Murphy (had 3 children Jessie, Robert and ??).
My mum turned 90 this year (gave her the Blantyre Project Vol 3 book, the perfect present) and I would desperately like to find at least a photo of her mum (Charlotte Jane Allan , need Henderon) who I never got to meet as she passed away in 1953 several years before I was born. Hope this is enough info to lead to something. kindest regards Mary.”
