Researching the family of Laurance Taylor b. Milnathort circa 1822, m.1854 to Mary Saunders b. Milnathort circa 1830. Laurance and Mary had about 6 children born in Milnathort...between 1855 and 1869..Alexander, Robert, Euphemia, John, George and Laurance. I am particularly interested in the descendants of Alexander b. 1855 who married Helen Glassart Fraser in Airdrie, Lanark in 1879, and whose descendants are buried in the Ballingry Cemetery in Fife.
Thank you.

In response to your query regarding Helen Glassart Fraser and Alexander Taylor of Ballingry, I am their Great Great Grandaughter, Helen McKean (nee Jackson). My Grandmother, Margaret, was the youngest of the 9 children.

Alexander died in 1909 and Helen in 1943. As well as 9 children, they had 11 Grandchildren and 18 Great Grandchildren. The last person to be buried in Ballingry cemetery was Douglas Wallace in 1998, husband of their grand daughter Helen Fraser who was died in 1994.

If you want any additional information please get in touch, I have a family tree which my father gave me in 1998 which may be of help to you and I do know the whereabouts of most of Helen and Alexanders decendents. My father often spoke of growing up in Ballingry House when he was a child so I may be of interest.

Are you related?

Hi, have sent you several emails but haven't heard from you. Have you changed your address? I have found a cassette of my father's where he is talking about everyone on the family tree. Let me know if you would like a copy and also your new email address.

My Fathers Father (my Grandfather, Laurance Taylor) is the brother of Alexander.
I am seeing my Father later today I will ask him if he can help you in any way.

Kind regards, Trevor Taylor
