Or is it?

See 'Comments' below

Grace's Family.

Thank you to John Devlin for providing this photograph of Grace Cochrane Darney.  In 1882, Grace became Grace Cochrane Devlin.

John has been researching his Devlin family history, and has been looking for a photograph of Grace for almost four years.

John wrote:

Photograph of Grace

"While going thru some Devlin papers a few minutes ago, what shows up?  -  a picture of Grace Cochrane Darney, dated 1912, together with one of  Robert Darney Ramsey.  Both pictures are copies on plain white paper.

It's really is hard to believe after all this time, I have this picture  -  and it's so strange, I have no idea where it came from.  It was just there.  Maybe miracles really do happen.

The Devlin story never seemed complete without the picture of Grace."

John added:

"If anyone has information about Grace or any other photographs please send them to me."

If you'd like to reply to John, please email me, then I'll pass your message on to him.    Thank you.

UPDATE

Photograph of Grace

"Unfortunately for John this photograph is of my grandmother Grace Cochrane Darney, neice of Grace Darney Devlin. She was named after her aunt.

The photograph at the top of this page was taken in 1912, at the time of her engagement to my grandfather, Robert Darney Ramsay.  They were also first cousins.

Robert's mother was Georgina Darney, Grace's father was Robert Darney, siblings of the eponymous Grace."
