  • I enter these records for Claire Cooper, Grand daughter of Henry McNeish, with whom I made contact with in 2013 when researching our McNeish Family's History & Ancestors. She was a lovely person that I communicated with her often, until her death. She remembered and loved her Grandfather, Henry McNeish dearly. This is for you Claire, my distant cousin Lorraine
