I'm searching for the family history and any relatives that may be. The information I have is as follows:
Name: Mary Hassell Brodie
Born: January 8, (?)1914, Motherwell, Scotland
Parents: John Brodie (no known siblings)
Ada Hassell (brothers: George & James
sisters: Elizabeth & Margaret)

Siblings: Gorden, Joseph, John, Margery, Agnes

Immigration: to Montreal, Canada in the time frame of 1919- 1924, with a cousin named Mary (last name unknown, also from Scotland who was married to Lenord Shippy who was from England)

Family Lore: John Brodie was a bit of a black sheep in the family and his father was a Laird. John came to Canada to seek his independant fortune. When the old Laird died an extensive search was made for John, who could not be found. Years later contact was established with John's 2nd daughter Margery and there was an inheritance. (Margery is now in her 90's and was a Brigadiere in the Salvation Army, if that helps tweak anyone's memory.)

If you have any information, please contact me at e-mail

Thank you
