"Mystery Photo"  -  Lizzie Jane Taylor SUTHERLAND and unknown family members
- date of photo possibly ca.1897-1899 - 
lived in North Parish, South Ronaldsay, Orkney


 special Query submitted to SouthRonaldsay.net 
(photograph found below this Query box)


      21 Feb. 2015 -
                surname  SANDISON/SUTHERLAND/NORQUAY . . . .

 Query:  I am seeking information about this photograph of family members of Lizzie Jane Taylor SUTHERLAND, a.k.a Lizzie Jane NORQUAY.

Lizzie (b. 1892) is the youngest girl in the photo taken, I believe, in 1897-1899.  The older girl to Lizzie's immediate left might be her older half-sister, Jessie BROWN (b. 1884).  The mother of both girls was Jessie SUTHERLAND (b. 1856) who died in 1899.  I am unsure if Jessie SUTHERLAND is in this photo.  The girls also had an older half-brother, Alexander Sutherland NORQUAY (b. 1881) but, again, I do not know if he is in this photo.  Alexander later married Jessie MAXWELL.

I am wondering if the older lady on the far right is Lizzie's grandmother, Jannet/"Jessie" SANDISON (married name SUTHERLAND) or Lizzie's aunt, Jane Louttit SUTHERLAND.

If you are able to help me identify any of these South Ronaldsay residents, I would love to hear from you.
