Hello, I wrote to you recently regarding my search for information on my grandfather William (Bill) Bennett of Hill street.

Hello, I am trying to trace my grandfather William (Bill) Bennet who lived in Hill street c1901 and then 60 High Street 1911. In 1911 he was a painters apprentice. His father was Alexander born in Kinross and his mother was Margaret nee Houston born in Tillicoultry. I have been unable to obtain any further information on William since the 1911 census and I wonder if any kind soul can add anything to the story. It would be much appreciated. Thank you

Re families Neilson and Drummond of Tilly. I am the granddaughter of Dr John Drummond 1868 to 1926 of High St (now the Co-op) Thanks to this site my cousin Elizabeth Callander and I, and many Drummond cousins are in touch. My mother was called Jean Neilson Drummond 1920 to 2005. I am trying to trace the Neilson family , presumably relatives as Scottish tradition is for children to be named after older, often childless, family members or godparents. Any ideas? Many thanks, Lindsey

My schoolfriend Elizabeth Storie and her Mother Jean lived @March Glen with Elizabeth's Grandparents the Kirks. I spent a lot of my childhood there, and would love to know if anyone remembers them. Elizabeth married Lesley McIntosh, and I think her Mum Jean married too. Remember getting off the bus at the Wicket and seeing the Tinkers camping in the woods. Ruby Taylor, Jean's sister lived next door, and the Sneddons lived further up the road. Does any of these names seem familiar?

34624553 To John Readman Re the address this could be what used to be known as the sandy mans hoose just off the Dollar Road where Harviestoun Grove is now built. It lay to the east of Tillicoultry just before Danny Hamilton's farm, the area was known as the sandhole. 24345232 The address could refer to what we called the the Sandymans cottage, just off the Dollar Road before Danny Hamilton's Farm. There used to be a sand quarry where the Wimpey Estate at Harviestoun Grove is built now. I do remember older people refer to it as the sandhole.

Hi, I've been trying to research my grandmother's family history now for sometime and, I can't seem to get very far. My grandmother's name was Glorine Miller ( b. 1918 in Connecticut, U.S.). Her father was James Miller and was born in Tillicoultry Dec. 5 1880 he married Jessie Ann Stewart born Jan.7,1883 and she was from Woodside, Scotland. The only other relative I can find is Peter Miller ( James's father). I found an address through my research that James ( or just his mother ) lived at 10 Moss Rd. Tillicoultry. If there is anyone out there that has any information on this family, I'd be very greatful. Thanks so much.

Hi, was just stumbling across this site. I stayed in Tillycoultry for a few weeks in 1983, I was 17 and during this first visit to Scotland I fell in love with Scotland and its people. It took me 23 years to return, but now my husband and I try to visit Scotland once or twice a year, and one fine day we hope to move to your beautiful country that makes us feel so at home. Was wondering if the McBays are still living in Tilly. I stayed with the family in 1983, was penfriends with their daughter Biddy (Elizabeth), who I had met in Hamburg (Germany) the year before. Can't remember the street they lived in, but do remember her Dad was from London and they had a little dog called Dougal. Maybe someone can help me? Would love to get in touch. Thanks in advance!
