The family of my grandfather @Colin Wilson come from Lasswade, Loanhead, in Scotland. His father Josephfamily of my grandfather @Colin Wilson come from Lasswade, Loanhead, in Scotland. His father @Joseph Wilson came out late 1890s, early 1900s early enough to served we believe in the AIF in WWI but too many Joseph Wilsons to verify exactly. He married a @Celia Weingott and had his children, grandchildren out here in Australia.
Family lore says he was the only boy in a large family of sisters, but we have no record of names etc. @Joseph Wilson senior and his wife @Margaret Nelson lived in Lasswade area, and Joseph was n engine driver or something like that.

Any information would be wonderful, and I am more than happy to pass on our information.

Colin is my grandfather, and he is the son of the Joseph who came out here just before WW1 started to find work as a miner to support mother and sister.
