My maternal grandfather was born at30 Kirk Street Peterhead on
16/9/1901, his name was William Buchan Bennett, his parents were Ann
Wood and Frederick Bennett. My grandfather was always known as "Buff"
because he met Buffalo Bill when he was young. His father was known
as Yankee Fred, the man who painted sparrows because his hobby was
breeding canaries, he had a brother who was a sea captain and
possibly a relative who owned "Bennett's bar" in West Hartlepool.
My grandfather moved to Glasgow where he married Mary Connor. My
mother's maiden name was Jean Bennett, she married Jimmy Williamson
and had 5 children including 2 sets of twins.
Any information would be welcome and contact with any of the family
would be wonderful.
Thank you in advance, Marlene Graham.
