Who Are You?  I Really Want to Know!

   The pictures below are taken from a photo album passed down to me from my paternal great grandmother.  I never knew her, and my genealogy quest began after my grandmother had died.  My dad couldn't help with the identification process and so I'm asking for help!  The family names were most likely Mackey (Mackay), Johnston, Sprague, Spooner, Hay, Reoch, Walker, Eglington, Whitten, Beattie and possibly others if they were not family members.  The locality of the pictures are mainly Leitrim, Donegal, Louth, Antrim in Ireland, Leith in Scotland and Boston and New York in the US.


If you can help, please email me and I'd be happy to exchange whatever information I have.  If you copy or use a photograph, please make sure you attribute it to: Photograph in the collection of Donna Moughty,  IrishFamilyRoots.com

Cover (Our Friends)
This is the only photo in the album that had any identification. On the back it simply said "Reoch." The photo was taken by Pettigrew & Amos in Leith. The back has an image of a Gold Medal awarded 1897 so I think the picture was taken after than time. One viewer has identified the picture as Mary Hay Reoch.
Woman - Edinburgh
This photograph was taken by T J. Bonne & Co. 105 South Bridge St. Edinburgh. A google search shows that the photo studio was at this address from about 1884, but under the name of T.J. Bonne & Company from about 1895 when his wife took over the business after his death in 1895
