Isn't genealogy a wonderful thing. I've just discovered that I was actually related to my wife before we were married. As well as being my wife, she is also
my 3rd cousin twice removed's father-in-law's grandmother's sister-in-law's Great Great grandfather's brother's Great grandson's brother-in-law's Great Great Great granddaughter
Honest. Have a look under "relationship chart" for the people with ID's 1 and 4 and you'll see what I mean.
For those from Kelty, here is a poem written by my father's cousin, John "Bearcat" Redmond.
Dreams of Childhood in Kelty
I've started to dream of all the times when we were young and each day was filled with joys
We would climb the hills and walk around the Lochs never giving a thought to toys
We would climb our nearest mountain, Benarty was its name
Or we would wander through the Weewoods, hunting all the game
The Meadows was our big swampland, and Loch Ore was our big sea
And many a raft or homemade ship was found sunk or floating free
Sometimes we would sit on the redden ash of the Aitken Bing so high
And dream of the wild strawberries at the back of the hill
And in the warmth of the sun we would just lie
We would gaze at the cooling towers, as they thundered like rain
And we would look at the grass with a mild disdain
We would talk of the great times we have had there before
Like down at the perch hole so black and so deep,
or after the big trout in the bay where they would sleep
Oh life was good when you're young and so bold
But now its just memories and dreams when you get old
