Apr 14, 2008: Stephen found

Updated GRAHAM chart to reflect all the newfound cousins. I'm even more convinced that this David is the son of Mary as I've now eliminated another David of about the same age from my enquiries.
Tonight's find was David's son Stephen. Family anecdote had him as going to work one day and disappearing, with rumours of long running feud with his boss, and talk of going to America. Couldn't find him there. The answer was much simpler, he'd merely moved across the Border and settled in Minto as signalman at Hassendean, dying in Hawick in 1924.
Still need lots of dates and places on the more recent descendants of David and Jane, but I've caught up with what Gary had, and checked off what I can.
