Jean Report 26 Mar 2006 03:06

Looking for the children or possibly step children of John Dykes and Jessie Paterson. John was born in Newmilns Ayrshire in 1880 and Jessie was born in Patna Ayrshire 1888. They were married in Glasgow in 1919. John was previously married to Annie McKelvie and had 2 children, John jnr and Jean. They all lived in Darvel Ayrshire. Jessie was previously married to James Jamieson and lived in Glasgow. At the time of her death in 1941, Jessie had been living Prestwick Ayrshire and her death was registered by her daughter Jessie Martin. Jessie snr possibly also had another daughter. I would be gratefull if anyone out there could give me any details on Jessie's [and possibly John's] daughters Thanks Jean
