Christina Nicol (1874-1959)

Born Rosemarkie, Ross & Cromarty, Scotland.
Died 1979 Inverness, Scotland.
Great Great Granddaughter of
David Nicol & Janet Bremner.

Christina was born to John Nicol & Christina Cameron on 14 December 1874 in Rosemarkie, Ross & Cromarty, Scotland.  The 1891 Census lists Christina as a general servant living with Isabella Junor, aged 80, born in Nairn. The address was "The Shore" Rosemarkie - a house with 5 rooms with one or more windows.

Note:  Christina's older step-sister Isabella married William Junor circa 1880.  Further research could find that the above Isabella was William's mother.

Christina married John James Fraser McBain in Rosemarkie Church on 12 December 1895.  They had children John Angus, who died aged 17 from osteomyelitis of the cervical spine, Catherine, Christina, Dorothy & Donald Alexander McBain (b 1917).   The loss of John Angus, known as Jack, was a great blow to John & Christina.

John James Fraser always had Pan Drops in one pocket and pennies. or threepenny bits if you were lucky, in the other. As grand children, we were always given a coin and a sweet when we visited.  We then went to the corner shop in Duncraig Street and bought some more sweeties.  Christina, known as Teanie, had a wonderful sense of humour and loved to laugh.

Teanie died in 1959 and is interred in Tomnahuridh Cemetery in Inverness together with her husband John and their children John Angus, Catherine and Donald Alexander.
