      Hi, My Grandfather fought in the Boer war in South Africa in the late 1800's and after the war, decided to go back to South Africa from Scotland. He eloped with his girlfriend, Elizabeth McMeekan and married on the boat to SA, His names were Alexander Hay Whitton.I never knew my Grandmother, but my Grandfather passed away in 1960 in SA. Does anybody have any information about this family as I would like to make contact. ?
