New article: Crookedholm, Cowans Row and Wellington Pit

My great grandfather Joseph Strachan moved to Crookedholm to work at Wellington Pit. It’s where my grandfather Henry Strachan was born, where he started working as a coal miner, and where he and his wife Helen McCrae lived after they were married until they moved to Lanarkshire in about 1910.
