John Manson (1841-1931), his unmarried daughter May (Maisie) Manson (1873-1952, and grandson

This family figures prominently in the book, Orkney Journeys by John Wilson. Barclay was a close friend of the author. If anyone knows of a reasonably priced copy of this book (I have a copy that is buried somewhere in my ex's house), please contact me.
