Father   James Lothian (25 Jul 1830 - 7 Apr 1905)
Mother   Helen Muir (c 1837 - 25 Jul 1931)

Birth* 30 Oct 1856 Melrose, Roxburghshire, Scotland1,2,3,4,5 
Marriage* 29 Dec 1876 John Graham; Lauder, Berwickshire, Scotland6 
Death* 27 Dec 1928 207 Haliburton Place, Galashiels, Selkirkshire, Scotland 
Note* My great-grandmother had the look of a true daughter of the countryside. The photographs we have of her - three - show the unmistakeable demeanor of a country-dweller. In one in particular, she looks like she had been out in the fields tattie-howking. Margaret must have been a woman cherished by her children judging by the number of grandchildren, including my mother, who were christened with 'Margaret Muir' in their names.
I inherit my mitochondrial DNA from Margaret.
