Jacqueline McTaggart UK Aug 27, 2000
Kathleen was born on the 4th August 1948 at Burkinford Toll near Southdean in the Scottish Borders to William Sharkey (now deceased) and Margaret Petrie Armstrong Ross. Kathleen was adopted by a John Hope Watson and Clare Watson on the 31st January 1952 at the Sheriff Court of Roxburgh,Berwick and Selkirk at Jedburgh. Kathleen,s adoption broke down for a period whereby Kathleen spent time in Wilton House Children,s Home in Hawick. It was at this time Kathleen met her birth sisters and brothers:William(aka Billy),David, Agnes(aka Nancy) and Margaret. Kathleen did maintain contact with her brother Billy for some time after leaving the home to return to her adoptive parents.
Kathleen married hence the surname Rutherford (husbands christian name possibly Tom, date of marriage unknown).
Kathleen also has a son called Kevin McNamara born on the 14th of February 1973 at 19:05 at The Royal Maternity Hospital in Glasgow. Kathleen,s address at this time was 206 Main Road, Elderslie. The father of Kathleen,s son is a Mr Daniel McNamara who worked as a natural gas survey officer. Information that we have received is that Kathleen has since remarried after the death of her first husband (Tom Rutherford) and could be living in Blackpool. Her brother Billy and her sisters Margaret and Agnes would like to find Kathleen as they have not seen her for 38years or so. If anyone knows of her whereabouts or the whereabouts of her son Kevin please e-mail:
