I was so happy to see your post re Alexander Sandison. I have been trying to find out more about the Sandisons of Portsoy.
My mother was Mary Sandison, daughter of Alexander Sandison. He was born in Portsoy and died in Johannesburg, South Africa.
I recognise all the names in your post. Bella, Jean and Thelma were my aunts, and "Teddy" was my uncle.
"Fever Dorp" should read "Vrededorp", I think. Then it was a little mining town, now a part of Johannesburg.
We knew Lily Jane as "Jean". She subsequently married Fred Hack. They had two daughters, Barbara and Daphne
My mother Mary married Harry Pearson and they had two daughters, myself and my sister Beryl.
Thelma married George Turner. They had one daughter, Maureen.
I'm very interested to know about my grandfather's family in Portsoy, and would be pleased to hear from you and to answer any questions you may have about the SA family.
