Donald Ross


From on Monday, 18 February 2013
Elizabeth
My son forwarded me the info on your "Pioneer Families" website and a pleasant surprise to see Donald Ross featured. Donald, as you correctly stated married Clementina Fraser. Later Clementina Ross married Edward (Ned) Williamson at Wedderburn and they had 4 children - Donald, Andrew, Elsie and Jack. Elsie was my mother and passed away in 1988. Mum was born at Wedderburn in 1897.
Donald Ross was born at Rosshire, Scotland in 1822, marrried to Clementina Fraser at Ardmore, Scotland in 1851. Donald passed away in 1894 and Clementina in 1903. They had 8 children.
The original farm where is still farmed by Ross Williamson, now in his eighties and in true Scottish tradition still breeds Clydesdale horses with bloodlines going back many years. I have a good deal of information, but it was interesting to see your site. As a matter of interest my son was looking up material on Donald Williamson, who died on the Western Front in France during WW11 and is buried over there.
Regards, Fred Wilkinson
