Margaret O'Neill and a very young Isabel Moir

This is a photo of Isabel Anderson Moir, daughter of Davie and Jessie Moir, and 16 year old me, taken in the Moir's back yard in 1956.
Somehow, I missed picture #545 when I first discovered this site and only recently came across it. Davie and Jessie were very kind to me and I admired their relationship to each other and to Isabel (the apple of her father's eye - he was so proud of her).
Thanks again Liz Taylor (nee Askew) for responding to my query under picture #545. Give my regards to Jessie.

Nice photo Margaret, I too have a photo of Isabel. She was a very popular wee girl and her parents were well liked in the town. Her mother, Jessie, used to work in my Uncle's shop (Big Dave) and I always got on so well with her and Davie.

Margaret Weys nee O'Neill have just seen the photo of yourself and Isobel Moir. You have solved a question I had re children of Davie and Jessie. Davie and his brother Donald were second cousins of mine. I would like to know if Isobel had a sibling

Is her brother Fraser Moir picture #1336 and picture #720 ?

Anonymous 24 Jan. I had pondered the possibility of Fraser Alexander Moir being Davie's son but not able to ascertain his mothers maiden name of Murray. Probably a very good bet though. Thanks for the prompt

Isabel Moir's brother is Fraser, who also appears in picture #373 (right in front of me). Talked to them both last year in Dornoch where they run a shop/tearoom together.

Isabel and Fraser are indeed the children of Davie and Jessie Moir. Jessie's maiden name is Murray, Brian
