Hi!
I posted a photo of my great-grandmother, Jessie Collier, on my Ancestry.com tree. I think she looked a bit like Sigrid Thornton, in The Man From Snowy River movie. Jessie definitely looked her daughter, Gladys.
Thankyou very much for all those who posted info about Jessie's mother and grandfather. I didn't know that her grandfather was once Master of the Harbour at Greenock in 1840.
