||Elsie Hutchison's father, James H. died in 1901 when
Elsie was aged nine. She went to live at Berrymoss with Alexander Hutchison
(brother of her grandmother Elspet).
Elsie left Berrymoss when her
Guardian and Berrymoss tenant, Alex. Hutchison, died in 1911; or rather
about a year after his death. Elsie had no means of support, so she did the
sensible thing, got a job as housekeeper to a widower with (I think) six
children, and then married him. He was Alex Fowlie.
Elsie bore him three daughters, Lucie, Jean and Betty.
Betty married John Strachan, and became our close friend, Betty Strachan, of
Alford. Jean Died about 18 months ago in Glasgow; Lucie lives in Mombasa.
The Fowlies were residents of Peterhead,
where Betty was born.
