Trying to find McKay

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Fiona Report 4 Jun 2003 09:32

I am trying to find any information on the brothers of Gordon Howard Alker McKay, who was born in 1914, and married Joan Barlow. His brothers were called Ray, James Douglas (he served in the army in WW1) and Stuart (served in the navy). I believe they were all older than Gordon. At some point James was in Tokyo, during the mid-sixties. Their father was Frederick Harris McKay, who had 2 sisters, Constance and Edith. They would all have been born during the 1860 - 1880 period. I don't have any date of birth for any othe brothers - can anyone help?
