Winifred Margaret MONTROSE

:Margaret's previous address was; Mr & Mrs. Trevor Davies, 17/6 Jaffne Street, Port MacQuarrie, NSW, 2444, Australia. In a letter to Ronald Caseby dated 09/02/1992 she gave their new address as; 8 Attunga Close, St Hubert's Island, Central Coast, N.S.W., 2257, Australia. Her letter said the following;
"Dear Eveline and Ron, It was indeed a surprise to hear from you. We were sad to hear about Uncle Sandy - Margaret had informed us of his death but we are happy to know that you are continuing his work on the Caseby Clan.
Last week Trevor and myself went into Sydney to the Federal Electoral Offices. There it is assumed that everyone over the age of 18 years is listed on their rolls. As everything was on computer it did not take us long to come up with the fact that there does not seem to be any "Casebys" in Australia. Of course, the female members of the "clan" who would have perhaps have changed their names would be a bit hard to trace.
I have enclosed the information which I sent to your father, or which you thought might have been destroyed.
As you can see we have changed our address. we decided to move closer to the family. We hated leaving such a beautiful place as Port MacQuarrie, but the distance was too great and we were not seeing people as much as we wanted to.
Sorry to hear that Aunt Minnie's sight is not too good. Please remember us to her when next you see her. We still fondly recall her welcome we were made to feel during our holiday over there.
We hope we have been of some help in trying to trace the "Clan" members. Please let us know how everyone is from time to time. Love Margaret and Trevor."

Letter dated 22/05/94. "Dear Eveline and Ron, You will be pleased to know that "Going with God" arrived safe and sound, for which I thank you very much. After Trevor and myself have read it I shall pass it around the family. What a stroke of luck finding a kindred spirit in James Caseby! He will be a great help to you, particularly living in Edinburgh, which I should imagine, would be the main Genealogical centre for Scotland.
I managed to fill in the sheets of "missing information" as best I could. There was a "Margaret Caseby" listed in an old Birthday Book belonging to my Mum, so I assume that it is the date of birth of "Margaret Brown". I also have my Mum and Dad's marriage certificate which is where I found the information on the marriage of "David Caseby" to Margaret Brown.
I have a great curiosity to know more about Mum's side of the family. If you have anything at all concerning it, I would be interested to hear of it.
The "Marjorie Petrie" which you mention in your letter, was known as "Margaret" - for what reason I don't know! I cannot remember the address to which I used to write, but if I do happen to come across more in that direction I'll let you know. I do believe she served in the W.A.A.F during the War. During both of our visits to the U.K I asked what relatives we saw, of her whereabouts but no one could give me a clue.
I find it strange that your Mum wasn't consulted about the celebrations in Malawi and can understand her being rather hurt and puzzled by it. I hope she will be happy in the Nursing Home where I'm sure she will be well taken care of - it will be a wrench for her leaving
Glenrothes after spending so many happy years there.
I remember very vividly our visit there and how we were made so wel come. I also remember your Dad's first word to me - it was "WINNIE!"
He obviously saw a likeness between myself and my Mum - I was very touched by this reaction.
Hope you are both well. Poor Trevor is suffering with sciatica and has to have X-Rays tomorrow - hope they can do something for him - it is so painful - old age can be a nuisance sometimes! Our love to you both. Margaret XX

The Postcard enclosed (which is on file) was addressed to Margaret's mother i.e. Miss Winnie Caseby, 8, St John Street, St Andrews, Fife, and was dated May 26, 1905, sent from the U.F.C. Assembly Hall, Edinburgh and had the following note, "Dear Winnie, Happy to learn you have passed your Welfare and Youth Exams. With congratulations - your friend, J.R.G."
The picture on front of the card was headed, "United we Stand, Divided we Fall." On the left was an inset oval photograph picture of Rev Principal Hutton, D.D., on the right one of Rev. Principal Rainy, D.D., Moderator, in centre top an outstretched white dove, in the centre two hands clasped with 1900 to the left of them and 1905 to the right side, underneath this was the "Burning Bush" emblem with the Latin motto, "Nec Tamen Consumebatur" (it burned yet was not consumed) on a flying pennant, and across the bottom of the card was printed the message, "United Free Church of Scotland General Assembly, Synod Hall, Edinburgh, May 1905." (genealog\caseby01\282).

The following message was on Margaret's Christmas Card to me for 1999: "Dear Eveline and Ron, Hope you are both well. Have just sent your Mum a Christmas Card, hope she is O.K. Trevor is managing his prothesis O.K. and is able to drive the car. We had a short holiday at Port McQuarie earlier in the year - a well deserved break for him, Margaret."

Alice CASEBY

Alice telephoned me out-of-the-blue on Friday 22/11/1996 at 4-12pm
from her home in Erin, Toronto. Her brother Andrew had lent her "Going
with God" and she had been enthralled reading it and just had to ring
on finishing it to say how much she had enjoyed it. She took my
Internet address and promised to send me a message for she could not
recall her own one accurately. I told her that Mum was still alive and
she sent her love. She was also surprised to hear that Alice was one
of the really famous CASEBY Christian names in the history of our
family.

Before Christmas 1998 Alice asked me to find two copies of "Going with God" as Christmas gifts for her daughters and she would pay all the costs involved. I obtained the books which cost me 15, plus postage of 2.50, each. The wrapping and postage to her cost me 6, total 41. I heard nothing more from Alice and so I wrote in January 1999 to discover if the books had arrived for her Christmas Card had a different address on it in Ontario, Canada. She phoned to thank me for them and promised to send a "generous" cheque to cover all the bother and expense I had gone to find the books for her brother in Edinburgh had said none were now available in bookshops. She said the new address was just another of their homes near to their Ranch. Alice phoned three times more in the year from Florida, another of their homes, and each time apologised for not reimbursing me. With her Christmas Card for 1999 there was a Postal Money Order valued at 30 sterling, leaving me 11 out of pocket for my generous actions, and with the following note added;
"Hope you are both keeping well. Sorry I have taken so long to send money order, but just do not know where the year has gone. Business has been very hectic, the economy is booming here just now, long may it last. Still not having much luck with the email, but I have seen your sites, very good. Wishing you all the best in the year 2000, Will give you a phonecall soon. Alice" (I have made a Millennium Resolution not to do business with Alice CASEBY in future unless the money is upfront first! It is easy to understand why her economy is booming! Ron.)
