    Hello. We use the walks around Newtyle quite a lot and congratulate the Footpaths Committee on their work. However we were dismayed last week to note that, as part of the clearance of Rosebay Willowherb, whoever has been involved has practically destroyed the only population on the Railway Walk of cowslips (?by spraying) and has come close to doing the same to one of the two populations of Yellow Figwort. Would it be possible in future to take advice before clearing scrub etc?

    My name is James Black. I am a descendant of James John Black b. 9/18/1841 and Alice Watson Drysdale b. 1848. John James siblings were Marion Campbell, Barbara Simpson, Jemima Aikman, Julia Victoria, Alexander, John, Hutchison, and William. I believe James John Black is a descendant of John Black b. 1793/4 & and Margaret Aikman b. 14 Nov. 1811 – 1855. Married 1831. Possible siblings of John Black were Alexander, Margaret, James and Thomas. All may have been children of Alexander Black and Barbara Simpson. Possible siblings of Alexander were – Mary, Jean, David & William and all possible children of David and ??
    I’m trying to reach anyone who may be related or know of my ancestors. I reached this site by internet searching references in a journal written by my gguncle Cunningston Black who visited Scotland October 1921. The journal refers to “fathers farm homestead 14 miles East of Dundee at Alyth Junction, Newtyle.” And the “Black burial ground at a small old church near Nevay.”
    Thank you for your time.

      I have often heard my mother refer to Uncle Cunney. He would have been a brother to my great great grandmother Alice Black (daughter of James John and Alice Watson). The farm Alice purchased after the death of husband James in Montague Sussex County NJ abt 1890 is now preserved by the US National Park Service. The names you list as siblings were definately passed down my direct bloodline. My great grandmother was Jemima, my grandfather’s sister was Marion and my mother is Victoria.
