Jane Ann Emslie was the sister of my Great Grandfather, Francis Watt, they were the children of George & Jane Watt. They were raised in Lumphanan. She married Alexander Emslie 13 May 1876 & they would spend the rest of their lives at Balfluig. They had seven children. Jane Ann 1878, Peter Alexander 1880-1887, William 1883, George Francis 1885, James 1886, Alexander 1890, Patricia Alexina Isobel 1893-1984. Can anyone tell me what happened to these children?

Patricia stayed on at Balfluig running the farm with the help of her grieve Geordie Watt. Her son Alec was a contemporary of my parents Alec & Chris Gray. Mum's Dad (William Stewart) was blacksmith at Lonenwell at this time. In the 40s I remember Patricia (or Auntie Na as I called her) Baby- sitting for Mum. Patricia and Geordie were guests at our wedding in 1965. David Adam her grandson still lives at Balfluig.

Brothers of Jane Ann Emslie nee Watt. I am stuck with my Family Tree. Jane Ann had two brothers who simply disappeared from history. George Watt born 4 August 1843 & James Watt born 1853. They were like Jane Ann both the sons of George Watt 1822-1901 and lived in the Lumphanan area. If there are family historians who could help me I would love to hear from them as I am in Australia and it has become impossible to go any further with the research. Cheers Iain Watt

Patricia Emslie was my grandmother. I never met her. She had my father but he was put up for adoption immediately after he was born. It would be interesting if any knows who the father was.
