Groundwaters at Scorriedale

This photograph was probably taken at Scorriedale in Orphir. It is a family group of Groundwaters. My Grandfather, James, and Grandmother, Jemima (Mimie) Inkster are second and third from the left. The children are their's and the girl in the front is my Mum, Rhoda. She had a sister (Iris) and two brothers (Jimmy and Stanley). The shy little girl is Iris and she was killed in 1927. So the picture was taken in about 1925. Mum would have been ten years old. The older gentleman and lady may be my Great Grandparents, James Farquhar Groundwater and Ann Swanney. I have no knowledge of the other two ladies.

I can confirm that the older two folk on the right ARE my Great Grandparent, Ann Swanney and James F Groundwater.
