Grace, if I remember correctly Davie was born 19 July 1946....so that would put this photo around 1950. Ali

I have another photo of Willie McLeman(Welcome)where he is sitting next to little Lorna Wilson.... which I will post when I get back to Holland....Willie's mother Ann Jack....(married to Lewis McLeman)was a first cousin of my grandfather James Jack(Slake)married with Bella MacLeman (Goody). Ann's sister Catherine Jack, married to blind James MacIntosh(Goulse),was the village midwife. Please contact me if you need more details and dates of these Jack and McLeman (Scooty) branches.

Willie's father Lewis Macleman was my Gt. Grandfather Donald Macleman's older brother making Willie my Grandad William Maclemans first cousin. It is a wonderful photo. Thank you so much for sharing it with us Grace.

Ali, I always knew Willie MacLeman as "Willie Lewie". Was Lewie part of his name or was this just the Avoch way of tagging ones father's name onto the Christian name? My Bouba Lewie (Patience) was known as Lewie Ellen, Helen being his mother's Christian name.
