Hi Scott. Thanks for adding photo. These are my great-great-grandparents. Their daugher, Isabella, emigrated to SA and married a Bill Alexander. Their daugher, Ethleen Alexander, was my grandmother. Comment left on 04 July 2011 at 10:52 by Alastair Deakin
Think you have the wrong family, their children were Nellie, Margaret, Christina, David, Annie, Donald, but no Isabella. Comment left on 06 July 2011 at 15:19 by Scott J Mackenzie
Alasdair- I know who you are talking about, But these are not the right people. Found you people on census and they aren't the same. Sorry :)

According to the Cromarty album that photograph is Yankee Watson and his wife which is my great great grand father David Watson. Comment left on 12 July 2011 at 20:48 by Alan Pike
I know the photo says Yankee Watson but it is not. These were my great gran's grandparents. She had this photo and said it was her grandparents. Comment left on 14 July 2011 at 20:13 by Scott J Mackenzie
Thanks for the comments Scott, hard to know, isn't it? From the 1891 Census, I found they lived at 59 Gordons Lane. Obviously not far from where this photo was taken. Comment left on 17 July 2011 at 04:14 by Alastair Deakin
Not at all, this was taken at 65 Gordons Lane, where they lived. I have another of them so will put it on here as well :) Comment left on 29 July 2011 at 20:00 by Scott J Mackenzie
