My Great grandfather was Alexander Taylor from Cowie Stonehaven. Originally a fisherman from Stonehaven he moved to Glasgow to become a docker on Clydebank. He was blacklisted for union activities and therefore worked in Canada for a while. He returned to Scotland and ended up in Newton Stewart. My father remembers his grandfather well - sandie Taylor. A keen fisherman and and claims he was related to Donald Dinnae!
Would love to hear from you
Ps took my dad on a visit to Stonehaven harbour museum. Saw a toolbox with the name dan Taylor - my dad was convinced this was an ancestor!
