Hello, my name is Kimberly Ashley. My maiden name was RAE!! I am looking for any information on my grandparents and their families from my fathers side. My dads name was William Andrew Rae (bn 06-22-32 in Quincy MA and died in Las Vegas NV on 12-19-88). My grandfather's name was William Rae (bn 09-30-01 in Inverness Scotland to T. Andrew Rae and Maggie Horne Rae), I was told that his last name was originally MacRae but he dropped the Mac when he moved to the US, I don't know if this is true or not but our family is now known as Rae. He married my grandmother Winefred Hogg (bn. 10-08-07 in Johanisburg, So. Africa to Andrew Hogg and mother un-named in geneology) sometime between 1927 and 1931, place unknown.
I was told by my dad that my grandfather relocated to the US sometime around 1919 or 1920 and settled in Quincy MA. My dad was raised in Braintree MA and then moved to San Diego CA.
I don't have a lot more information about my grandfathers family but can remember that as of 1985 or so, he had relatives in Braintree (I think the name he mentioned was Elizabeth or Margaret) and Quincy and also some in Edinburgh Scotland.
I have always been interested in my Scottish heretige and would really appreciate any help that I can get on this. I would love to get in touch with anyone that might know anything.
Thanks so much!!!!!
