Re: CRAIGIE / Couper, Orkney

Classification: Query
Surnames: Cooper / Craigie / Scott
My great grandmother was called Helen (formerly Ellen) Torrance Cooper and she lived in Port Glasgow, Scotland. She was the daughter of James Manson Cooper & Annie Cooper (nee Scott.) Helen was the grand daughter of David Cooper & Douglas Cooper (nee Craigie)

I know that Helen had 2 sisters (Maggie & Jessie) and 1 brother (Murray) As far as I know David Cooper was a farmer up in Orkney before he moved to Greenock where he was a manager in one of the shipyards.

Jessie married a man called Tommy James and stayed in Govan Glasgow. Maggie stayed in Fleetwood. Murray may have moved to Luton but I'm not sure.

I also know that we had a relation in the US Navy who used to visit my great grandmother. He was quite important re security at Polaris Base at Holy loch and believe that when he retired from the Navy he may have gone to work at the Whitehouse.

Any further information you can provide would be much appreciated as I am having trouble finding out birth / death dates etc.
