Yes Yvonne, Harold is the son of Alick Cameron, Shoemaker.
Added by Grace Mackenzie on 14 June 2013
is this his son as my grand dad was born in 1911 which would mean a big age gap ?? And do you know of any other siblings? thanks again for your help as my granddad was killed in ww2 so there are no one to ask any more,
Added by Yvonne Hopwood on 19 June 2013
Yvonne - The Camerons were a big family. As far as I remember the brother who died in WW2 was Tom but I'm not sure about this. The others were Ian, Hector, Finlay, Eric, Harold, Jessie, Chrissie, Elgra (Elizabeth Grace), Hermy, Vivienne, Rita and Catherine. I can't put them in order of age but Harold would have been second youngest, followed by Hermy. There is a page on Facebook "Avoch Past and Present" where you can see some old photos of Avoch. I can remember your great grandfather - he was also janitor in Avoch school.

Hi Yvonne, my name is Allan Cameron, Harold is my father, sadly he passed away three years ago next month aged 81,
Hermy still stays in the area and Vivienne is in America . Tom was killed in WW2, I think he was married to a Madge and they had one daughter together . I am sure Hermy will have photos of yor your great grandmother , her mother which I might be able to copy and send to you.

Hi people, my name is Andrew Noble. My forefather originated from Avoch. Unfortunately my Father and I parted ways when I was quite young and as such have very little to go on when it comes to tracing my ancestry. My father Andrew had is several brothers, 1 was William whom I remember vaguely, possibly John and a sister Margret (Peggy) who was a school teacher and passed away approximately 10 - 15 years ago and may be buried locally. Any assistance would be greatfully received.

Andrew George Noble Cape Town Rep. of South Africa.

Hi, Andrew. There is a Peggy Noble in more than one of the school photos from the 1920s on this site. I am not sure if she is the Margret (Peggy) whom you mention. She was a great friend of my mother (Maimie McCartney/Sutherland). Peggy lived in a cottage up the Braehead and was, as I remember, a great advocate for Scottish independence. I'm afraid that that is all I can remember.

Hello, Andrew. My mother, Maimie McCartney, had a greaat friend, Peggy Noble, whom I think may be your aunt. She lived in Avoch up the Braehead above the village in a bungalow. She and my mother are in one of the school photos in the archive from the 1920s. She is named in that one. I remember that she was a great supporter of Scottish independence but have no other information.
