Thank you for uploading these certificates of Miss Mary Kennedy Matheson. She was sister to Walter Matheson. (He was one of the winners of the Northern Counties Cup Quartette 1911 and served as a Private in the in the 5th Battalion Seaforths and was killed on the 13th November 1916) Like him, she was my distant relation (2nd cousin 3 times removed). In my family tree research I found Mary was a teacher in the parish of Dornoch. She never married and died on the 11th September 1951 in Dornoch. - Thank you for your comment. Mary's brother Walter is featured in an upcoming digital exhibition in the museum called Reflections of WW1 to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War. - Administrator
