I am your first cousin, and am glad to find you! My mother was Elizabeth Thomson Tevendale (born 1908) and my father James Main Stewart (b. 1903). My mother's little brother was Tom , your father, who died in a drowning accident. I was a little girl when she got the news and remember how sad she was when she heard the news. The two had fallen out because a dispute over their father Charles Robbie Tevendale's will, so she hadn't seen him for a long time. But she always spoke of how fond she was of him.
I have an elder brother, Charles Main Stewart, who would also be glad to get contact with you, I'm sure. My elder sister, Pat, died last year. Charles has two children and several grandchildren, as do I. Pat who lived in the South of France had also two children and several grandchildren.
I've just begun to make a family tree online, but was mostly concentrating on the Stewart side of the family because that's the side where I have most information, but just completely coincidently I found messages by you online.
I was also born in 1947.
Hope to hear from you.
Iona (formerly Pamela)
PS. I see that your message was from Feb 2002, so I hope you see this!
