My grandmother, Mary Love McRae, was born in Paisley, Scotland on August 9, 1880 or 1883. Her parents were Jean Malcolm, who died in 1899, and John McRae, who died in 1919. Mary had 2 brothers: Angus, who was born in 1888, and William, who was born in 1890. Mary's father, John McRae, was a shipbuilder in Scotland and had a twin brother named James McRae. Mary (along with her family I am guessing) moved to the United States, and at age 26 she married my Grandfather, Nino Fernando Tetamo, an Impressario, who moved from Palermo, Italy to the U.S.
I have very little information about my Scottish ancestors. Did Mary's parents move to the U.S. with her? Did her brothers come here also? Did they move their shipbuilding business to the U.S.?
I am the last one in my family left to do this research. I would so appreciate any help you can give me. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a note: Mary was a musician who, after her marriage, often went by the first name of Aeolia. So, if you come on any information about Aeolia Tetamo, that is my Grandmother Mary Love McRae! Thank you again for your help.
