My granfather Alexander FORREST was married to Jane BAXTER.
Her father was the sunday school superintendant at Ferniegair for 30 years .He lived at Riccarton Cottage,Ferniegair,Lanarkshire and there were three other daughters who in my youth I called the Bombazine aunts because of their long clothes.Mary a nurse died in the first world war.The two others Sal and Agnes Baxter were to live with Jane in Barncluth Road,Hamilton where as the only child of the family I was the centre of attraction with my great aunts.Agnes Baxter was housekeeper to a Bob Wilson in Jordanhill during the second world war and a landmine came down that house chimney forcing them to move out, not unnaturally!We had a painting of Cadzow cattle those reared on the Hamilton Estate the keys of which were kept in the house at Barncuth Road.I believe great grandfather Forrest was head forrester there.I'd like to hear of any links.
