Dear Irene-

I have been researching my mother's great grandparents-

William Muir Wards b. abt 1834 (Kirkwall St Ola- as far as I know) - and
Mary Ann Harcus b. abt 1831 ( " " )

They were married at Kirkwall St Ola Nov. 10 1853

They had 6 children- William, James Walls, John Ponds, Thomas, George and Mary Jane.
The first two were born on Orkney, the rest in Leith.

Mary Jane is my Great Grandmother. Her daughter Alison Torrance is my grandmother.

I have some different names going back from Wm Wards-- but not sure if they are correct. I'm still working on my Orkney line-- I wrote a short article for the Orkney Family History Society about the Wards-- you should see if you can see it!

I don't know if we are talking about the same people-- or from which child of Wm Wards and Mary Ann Harcus comes your line of ancestry-- but would love to compare notes.

Thank you -

Anne Rogan
