Jessie Ann and James Johnston

This photo disna need much more said aboot it.
As has been said before brother and sister jist very fine Waas folk, yae can see what a cheery body Jessie Ann was from the photograph.
I think Jimmy did not live long after her passing. They had stayed together all there lives and had so much fun ,they tomented one another all the time but all in good fun.
Jimmy was a fine fiddler and wood worker Jessie Ann a great crafts woman in all things.

Yes John I still remember Jessie and Jimmy o' Sandsdale,I wonder if they lived all their lives at Sandsdale. Vera Johnston came to look after Jimmy after Jessie Ann died early 60's I think. Nice folk.
