Hello, Trying to find some history on my great, great grandfather (William Gavin Laing- son of Dr. William Laing- born in Aberdeen Scotland, not sure of the year). Here is a little history that might help. William Gavin had a son- William John Laing who married to Eliza Ann Hick. They had 4 sons, all born in Scotland- John Gavin (my grandfather, born Feb 5,year unknown), George Edward, Frank, and Arthur. John was married to Leora Pollock, George married Ella Stockdale, Frank married Alice Knolty (?sp), and Arthur married Nora Hazel Cameron. The 4 boys moved to Belmont, Canada and then on to Montreal. My grandfather, John Gavin, eventually moved to Atlanta,Ga. He had two children-Claudia Anne and William Gavin(my father-born Feb 5, 1932. I do know his Uncle Arthur Laing moved to Toronto, Canada where he was the import/export comissioner. Can anyone help me put more together on my great, great grandfather or any of the others too!!!
