Hello Margaret. Could you look up an Archibald FREW born 1857 in Lanarkshire. His Wife is Catherine born 1859. Possibly Fife. On the 1901 they were living in Northumberland but place of birth was just put down as Scotland. If I could find the area they lived in it may help me find Archibalds, parents. Many thanks for trying. Jenny.
