John Dewar and Wilhelmina Penman: son

John Robert Dewar
born 22.10.1869 Glasgow
(I think Alexander was brother, and he went to Canada, children Thelma and Ralph)
JRD was in Queen Vic's household cavalry, under the name of John Robert Wilson (we believe there was an unrequited love involved)
He was in the Boer War, then went to Australia and was in WWI as an Army adviser. He married Gardella NEICH. He is related to the McKnight family (William McKnight and Cathrine Penman of New York) and the Napier family, although we havent worked out how exactly. died 1937 Eugowra NSW, owned Central Hotel there.

Anyone having links with the above, pls contact me urgently.

kind regards
Lina Moffitt
