Hi Everyone

I thought I would tell you about my Catterline connection.

My grandmother Johanna Melvin was born in Catterline in 1883, her parents were William Melvin & Mary Ann Stephen, they lived in #8. In 1915 she married my grandfather Alexander Forbes (from Cowie) and they lived in Catterline until 1920-21 before they emigrated to Canada (my father was born in Canada in 1921).

My granny had two sisters Mary Ann whose married name was Taylor I believe she had a daughter named Melvina. Her other sister Maggie never married, both I believe lived in Catterline for many years. She also had two brothers William & James.

I have enjoyed looking at the photos that are posted on the site, and am planning on visiting the area in 2009.

Cheers from Canada

Cathy
