Dear Patricia,
I posted the message about Gilbert Porteous hardly daring to hope anyone would have any information. To be honest, I didn't expect anyone to have ANY information at all, which is why I haven't checked up on any follow-ups until now. I sincerely hope I haven't left it too late.
The information you posted contains too many family names to be just a coincidence.
Mary Gregg McBride (who married Gilbert Porteous) had a mother called Mary McFayden. Her father's name was Thomas McBride, as was her younger brother's. These names appear prominently in your response.
Could you send me more information? My own father was named Gilbert after his uncle, Gilbert Porteous, but I know no more about the family.
With many, belated, thanks,
Hilary McBride
