  1. Hi Chris
    Great photos thank you Hector.
    You may have wondered why the Rose brothers are commemorated at Creich when they were not born nor lived in the Shire?
    Their mother Catherine Witherby was originally Catherine Gilchrist, daughter of Daniel Gilchrist and Jane nee Reoch of Ospisdale. Catherine first married Frederick Rose then later she married Arthur Witherby.

    As you see I'm still researching my Gilchrist family
