  • Apparently an uncle of my father Robert John Pitcairn. My mother provided the only known photo of him to a writer/researcher a couple of yrs ago for a book. Curious about how we could find/buy a copy of the book to add to our family history. If some one has the details and where to purchase the book, please email me.
    Regards
