David Jack around 1900

This is my Great Grandad David Jack of 5 Factory Lane Avoch (now called 5 Seaton cottages). The photo would have been taken about 1900.

David, there are so many jacks,it would help if you knew Margaret's date of birth and l take it she was from Avoch? I wish you well in your search.

Hi David are you on facebook. If you are please join the Avoch Past and Present site. I started it and I am your Dads 1st cousin. I could then pm you with my email address. My Dad David Jack was a brother of your GrandMother Meg. That photo above is your Gt. GrandFather. Ann Duggan that has posted here is your cousin. Her GrandMother Jean was a sister of your GrandMothers. We have done the family tree and will let you have a copy. I used to be in touch with your brother James but have lost his email address.

David your Gran Meg was my Gran Jean's sister and as I live in Australia I had met Vincent several times when he came to visit my Mum. I don't know your Dad's family though so sorry I can't help you there.

Hi David,Vincent was my father. My mother, Brenda, had met your parents a few times but that was back in the 1960s and maybe 1973. If you want I could put you in touch with her but I don't know how much she would be able to tell you.
