Angus Miller - b. 30 Aug 1891, Wick.  He was the son of Capt. Alexander & Margaret Miller nee: Angus.  This is a picture of him in a hospital in Rochdale, England, after being riddled with shrapnel, photo taken about late 1916 - 1917.  He was transferred to a hospital in Rochdale because the only brother he had left in Britain was a Donald, Angus Miller, who happened to live there with his family.
Angus was there for about a year before he was well enough to come back to Canada.
Donald Miller was married on 20 Oct 1900 and am looking for any of his descendants.  He died on 15 June 1922, Prestwich, Manchester, England.  Buried 20 June 1922, Rochdale Cemetery, Rochdale, England. 

My grandmother, Alexina, Kate, Maggie Miller - sitting on the right taken somewhere in Caithness, probably around 1907.  I know very little about this picture.

My g. grandmothers, Annie, Elizabeth Thackray nee: Bradshaw on the left.  She was born 5 May 1864, Commonslide Crookes, Sheffield, England.  Her father's name was George Bradshaw and was a table grinder.  Her mother's name was probably Sarah.  I am looking for any information on the Bradshaw family past and present.  Margaret Miller nee: Angus - Born: 19 Oct 1856 in Dunnet, Scotland.  This picture was taken in Toronto, Ontario, Canada abt. 1918.  Neither women returned to Britain.
