I’ve just uploaded a page about the Cran & Kirkwood people on my family tree. These are not “blood relatives” as Susan Cran born about 1819 was the second wife of Robert Strachan, and I’m descended from one of his children with his first wife Margaret Haggerty. However, Robert and Susan had six children so they are on my family tree, hence Susan and her mother deserve an honorary mention.
Robert Strachan, due to being married twice, had a total of 15 children. A awful lot to bring up on a coal miner’s wage. How they managed in two roomed houses is truly amazing.
