Emma Macrae, my maternal grandmother, was born c1885 in Ireland, spent some of her childhood in Ireland, and later lived in Scotland.
Her father may have been a church minister and her mother may have been a Stevenson.
She married Rev'd Robert Fairley Strathern, c1910, in Lochee, Dundee. They had 4 children, 3 of whom survived to adulthood: twins Kenneth and Kathleen and youngest son Michael.
She later lived in Argyll and Edinburgh, where she died, c1972.

Could anyone help me find her ancestors?

Hello Mary,

I'm Michael Strathern's niece, Clare. My mother was Vera, sister of Lorna Strathern. Is your mum Kathleen? I knew your mum and used to chat to her a lot on my visits to Benderloch when I was little. I am living in Vancouver now (my whole family are here now). Today, I was looking at photos of the castle where Emma Macrae lived (my mum told me about this history and that she lived in the house with Uncle Michael for a while when she was old). I did some research tonight on the Internet and happened to come across your posting. Anyway, I hope you find out some information on your ancestors. I am so interested in family history especially my own mother's side of things - the MacLachlans in Oban. Anyway, just thought I'd say hello. If I come across anything for you, I'll email you again if ok with you.

Clare Byrne (nee Robertson)
