red mail Andersons of Knockderry, Cove, and Auchengower, Cove Cove
Knockderry House, now Knockderry House Hotel. The current owners tell me that an Anderson descendant visited them in about 2004 & gave them photos which are now on the hotel website. I would love to make contact with him. The first owner was David Anderson (1793-1879). His wife was Anne Blyth, sister of my great-greatgrandfather. He bought (or built) Knockderry House in 1846 as a summer residence. His main residence was in Glasgow. His son, John Anderson (1827-1911), inherited Knockderry in 1879 & extended it in 1897. His main residence was in Park Circus, Glasgow. 1881 census - 3 children of John Anderson & Jessie Harvie were at Knockderry, with 2 servants, while their parents were at 3 Park Circus. He had two sons, David Blyth Anderson (1872-1944) and A (Alexander) Harvie Anderson (1873-1939). I'm fairly sure DBA was the elder brother, and I don't know how he ended up at Auchengower rather than Knockderry. A. Harvie Anderson and some of his seven sisters lived at Knockderry - by 1904 he was listed at this address. He is in telephone directories to 1938. The Misses Anderson were still there in 1940. Ida Katherine Anderson & Norah V Anderson both had some art exhibited (several mentions on the web). I am also interested to know about Auchengower (built in 1850?) My greatgrandfather Blyth & his family spent 6 months there in 1895 and again in 1896, but I don't know who owned it then. David Blyth Anderson was living there by 1926. Any information would be very welcome, thankyou.

red mail Divert Farm Gourock
Hi My great-uncle has his place of death on his death certificate as Divert Farm, Gourock, in 1918. His usual place of residence was in Glasgow. Does anyone know of Divert Farm? I assume it was in the Divert Road area of Gourock, but I can't find any reference to it. I am curious as to why he was there when he died. His cause of death was TB, so I had wondered if it was a sanatorium of some kind. Thanks
red mail Cumming- Twins or name change? Rosneath
I have a curly problem in that I (well with lots of assistance from newly found family members)have traced back to a Walter Cumming, Rosneath, born about 1665, who had a son Patrick in about 1696. He married Mary McFarlane and they had a son Patrick in 1731. Patrick jnr married Janet Crawford and they had at least 10 children. I have record of Thomas being born in 1772, but after that no more record of him, until I came across a distant relative who has an Andrew with the same birth details and parentage as Thomas. I cannot find any official records of Andrews birth or baptism, with my relative's info coming I believe from family letters and alike. I can find marriage and death certs though. On the other hand I cannot find any further information on Thomas, apart from the Could they have been twins? Could Thomas have become Andrew between birth and marriage? Any educated suggestions (even wild guesses at this stage) would be welcome. Everything else fits except the name. Twins definately run in the family, but then there should be a record. I know there is probably no definative way to solve this, but I wonder what an experience genealogist would do? Thanks.
red mail McInnes Census 1851 Dunoon
Does anyone have access to 1851 Census of Dunoon? A long shot but possible Donald and/or Ann McInnes may have moved there from Coll around 1834/5 and deceased by 1859. Son John married in Bute 1859 stated from Dunoon on marriage cert.
