Robertson Family History Glasgow Scotland

This evening, I am posting a short video clip of a Robertson family memorial stone located at Cathcart Old Cemetery, Glasgow.

The inscription records the deaths of:

  • Robert Robertson, Ironfounder of Glasgow, who died Jan 31st 1895 age 58 yrs.
  • R.R's daughter, Lizzie Crombie on Aug 12th 1894 age 25 yrs
  • May Neilson McQueen, wife of R.R., who died Nov 19th 1921 age 82 yrs.

Robert Robertson is my great grandfather and I was given my great grandmother Mary's family name, McQueen as my middle name but spelled MacQueen I now use it as my last name. One of my father's cousins became interested in family history and told me Robert and Mary and one of their daughters were buried here. Sadly, my father's older brother, Robert but usually called Roy, died in a meningitis epidemic at the age of six and is also buried here. So wonderful to find this online!
