  1. Hi there
    Congratulations on a great website!

    I wanted to let you and your readers know of a book I’ve just published “In the Shadow of Feathertop – a History of the Lives and Legacy of George Jones and Margaret Hardie”.

    A number of Staley family members are mentioned, as well as Daniel Blythe, because they were closely connected to my ancestor William Cadzow, who was also a Whitburn native. Blythe was William’s sponsor for his trip out. And William and his family travelled to the Forest Creek goldfield with a Staley family after spending a few nights at Blythes house. One of William’s brothers came out on the Reaper with several Staley family members, too. So they get a few mentions in the book! Of particular interest are some original letters reproduced in the book, and transcribed, which were written home to Scotland by William and his wife Euphemia telling family at home about life at Forest Creek. The Staleys rate a mention or two in the letters also.

    You can read more about my book here: http://craig-fullerton.com/in-the-shadow-of-feathertop/

    There is a Names Index you can go to from there to see which of your Staley ancestors are mentioned.

    Kind regards
    Craig

  2. Hi Noel. Great work! Are you aware that Beryl Joyce Doran was the SECOND wife of Matthew Dick Aitken? His first wife was Agnes Gina Boyle 1896-1934. They were married 4/4/1923. They had a daughter Nancy Aitken 18/1/28 – 20/11/2002. Keep up the great work, Pat Stearn.

    • Thanks Pat, I do know that, I have his Death Certificate and it says that there were 2 children, if you’d like a copy, contact me
