I have mentioned above that I am interested in Space Exploration and sometimes wonder how my forebears would have thought of the various discoveries made by Space Missions. A few days ago I downloaded a picture taken by the New Horizons spacecraft of Pluto to which it is enroute. Also I was looking at a picture of Earth taken by Voyager 1 in 1990 from a distance of billions of miles. This was Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot. It puts everything in it's place! My forebears I think would be totally bewildered!
Please read Sagan-27
Finally, before I was a teenager, my childhood heroes were Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin from " The Man from U.N.C.L.E. " . However, a little later was " The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. "
As a teenager my hero was; The only logical answer: Mr. Spock.
Leonard Nimoy, sadly missed.

For the Low family, there is really nothing before 1829. The Fraser line nothing specifically before 1826. The Panton line nothing before around 1813. The Lindsay line is really needing some research especially.
