They were my Grandfather James Thompson's Grandparents on his Mother's side. Their daughter Isabella Crerar married Andrew Thompson.
I don't have many photos of them, but here is a link to one I posted when I first started blogging.
James was born in Methven, Perthshire, Scotland. Isabella was born on the Isle of Islay, Scotland. They met while James was a teacher in Blackrock where Isabella lived.
James & Isabella had 12 children; Isabella was the first born in Canada:
David (1865-1869), Margaret (1866-?), Jane (1868-1869), James (1870-1938), William Marshall (1872-1872), Walter (1874-1905), Isabella (1876-1954), Mary Ann (1878-1948), Flora (1880-1947), Sarah (1883-1979), Bertha (1885-1949) and Catherine Winnifred (1894-1966).
