I have a feelin'a/k/a/ "sightin' that I'm gonna' get lucky tonoc and have
lots of responses to my quest:-))))))))))))

I want to find my cousins--wherever they are.

A few weeks ago tonoc I wrote a poem on the SI list;
I just know I'm gonna' get as many responses to this
as I did to the poem.YAH!!

My search is for REID's------born in Lanarkshire--maybe-some records say so.
#1.What did the REID name mean? Or what was it ages ago? Lots of 'em I know.

William Duncan REID b. 28 June, 1835 in Holytown, Lanarkshire
My Great grandpa.

Margaret REID b. 28 Feb. 1833 or 34--My GG aunt. Born in Tollcross. Married Robert Graham 10 Dec. 1854 in Scotland.

Matthew Gilmore REID b. 9 March 1842.

There's also Elizabeth, James and Mary --all 6 came to America.
But.....There's that Alexander--if he really existed--and I want to find his kids.
Any takers?? Not "important" people, just hard workin' miners.
I now have photos of most of them and they are REAL to me.
Can someone help find my cuz's???
Love and Hugs,
