Researching relatives of Dempster family

Share this article

SIR, - I would briefly like to use your columns to seek/make contact with any relatives and friends of Joseph Black Dempster, born Athelstaneford 1898, died Eyemouth 1981, and his daughter Catriona Dickson Ghillie (nee Dempster), born Haddington 1940 and who married James Edward Ghillie in Eyemouth in 1979. I am currently researching the short lives of Joseph’s elder brothers, my great uncles, John and William, who perished in Flanders in 1916 and 1918.

I am hoping to capture any additional information or anecdotes that may still be in memory.

I will be happy to share my research with any relatives of Joseph Dempster.

My contact details are: Mail - 20 Monota Avenue, Shelley, Perth, Western Australia, WA 6148; Tel: +61 8 9354 1954; Email: .
