Myra (Crawford) Cowan
USA
N/A I left Glasgow in 1948 to come to Sacramento to be married. My late husband came to the Sacramento a few months before I did. He had lived in Clydebank during the war and moved to Dennieston when his home was damaged in the blitz. I have four children, eight grandchildren and one great grandson. I have one brother and his family who still live in Partick. I've lost track of any cousins who might still be in the area. There was George Gardiner and Betty Rankin. Several branches of the Cowan family (my inlaws) are still in the Glasgow/Clydebank area. One brother in law lives in Leeds.I have seen lots of people on this site who came from Knightswood where I lived until 1948. I lived on Kirkton Avenue. I attended Bankhead School (which was bombed during the war) and then went to Victoria Secondary School. Some of the people I remember were Margaret Hunter, Ann (who lived with her Uncle Alex and aunt Annie (?). I think the name was McTaggart. Then there was Girvan Watson and his twin brother Bill; Jimmy Angus - lived at Anniesland Cross; I saw the great website on St. David's Church which I used to attend when I was very young. I went to Dowanhill College after I left secondary school and then to work for a company called A. Johnson & Co. in the Royal Exchange Building. Does anyone recognize any of these people? I'd like to hear from folks who have anything in common.
