Notes from a latter writted in 1971 by Peter J W Kilpatrick. "The closest relative to you are three second cousins ( Mr Kilpatrick is writing to Mrs Douglass in the USA). They are grandchildren of the sister of your Grandfather, caroline Easton Macfie who married George Barbour of Bolesworth. Mr and Mrs George Barbour had a daughter, Caroline Elizabeth who married George F Barbour Simpson and they had three children now living. The only son Rudolf Barbour Simpson, must be about 70 years old. He is a retired schoolmaster and is married with two or three children I think. He lives near Malvern England. The elder daughter, Caroline W. is the widow of Ian Balck. She lives in Edinburgh. She is a great friend of my wife, and was one of my wife's bridesmaids at our wedding. This is beacuse of her friendship with my wife and not because of her relationship with my self. Carol ( as she is usually know) has no children. Thier other daughter is Margaret who married Fred Root. He is now retired but was a civil Servant before retiring. The live in Haslemere in Surrey England. They have two daughters, one of whom married last summer."

An E mail received Sept 20, 2003 contained a letter signed by Peter J W Kilpatrick ( who stated he was 66 at the time of writing the letter August 25 1971) He wrote in the letter " You are evidently not in touch with the Macfie relations in this country. I hope you won't be offended by the story that my aunt (aged 88) told me only last month about your grandfarther ( reference is here made to Robert Andrew). She said that he went to South America and when there did a thing that was so terrible that his photograph was taken out of all the family photograph albums and he was never mentioned again. Apparently he married a Roman Catholic
Note from Heather Lyle - In R A's diary of 1898 the family returned to Scotland at the end of year and they were were warmly met by his mother and family. He goes hunting with his brother John. Robert is then sent do research on Dominica and Puerto Rico as thier feasibility to grow sugar. They had lost thier first child in Hawaii, and Pauline had insisted that the next born be in a real hospital, so Robert Francis was born in San Francisco.
