Extract from guestbook Feb. 2003, Betty Davie (nee Simpson ) Toronto, Canada  (email tba )
 
" I was born at 587 Dalmarnock Road , we then moved to Allan Street and were there when the building was bombed on March 13, 1941. My mother (Greta, nee Thompson), brother George (4) and I (19 months) lucky to have escaped with our lives, were evacuated to my grandparents' holiday house at 25 Castle Street, Port Bannatyne, Islay. 
Our next home was at Farme Cross, Rutherglen where my father Bobbie Simpson had a shop, Farme Cross Emporium. I attended MacDonald Public School and eventually Rutherglen Academy. We moved to Richmond Drive after my father returned from the army.
I have some cousins that I have lost touch with, Irene (nee Simpson) Henderson, last heard of she and her husband Kenneth were living in Africa. Also the Donald family, May, married name McCue, Alastair, Robert and Brian. It would be nice to hear some news about Rutherglen.
Thank-you Wull, for making this amazing web-site available to the many Glaswegians scattered around the world and awaking many wonderful memories of their childhood."
