Daniel Hossack 1871 - 1934
My great grandfather and the last of a very long line of fishermen. To those with a passing interest in tracing your family here are some of the pitfalls with particularly the Cromarty fishing families; Daniel was Christened Donald, married as Donald but was buried as Daniel. To his family he was Daniel but most Cromarty folk would have known him by his nickname "Strecht". There are also numerous marriages between cousins as was Daniels to his wife Jane Hossack (nee Hossack).
The shot is taken outside the old school in Shore Street facing the Cross House. Note the old buildings in the background which have now gone.
