Leaves From My Family Tree
My grandmother, Mildred "Pip" Knox Brown Pollock, gave me a family manuscript many years ago; it gives details of how our family came from Lesmehagow, Lanarkshire, Scotland, in 1832, and lists the descendants of our ancestors, James Brown and Janet Jamieson, and tells about their migrations.
I believe that the manuscript may have been sent to my grandmother in 1966 by a cousin or aunt in Canada. I have no idea who did the reasearch or who wrote the paper.
The copy I have is a photcopy of a mimeograph. If you have a copy of this in your family files, please contact me.

Pip was given her nickname because her younger sister, Margaret (Peg) could not say "sister" - it came out "pipper".
