"In Days Gone By"

I have just received a photo of Ancrum Old Parish Church and Graveyard from Karen Richardson in Alberta, Canada, whose husband's ancestors are interred in Ancrum Graveyard.
They were James and Elinor Hogg who lived at Old Belses.
Their son, Alexander emigrated to Canada and the following generations still stay near Elnora in Alberta. The area is named after the wives of two postmasters - Elinor Hogg and Nora Edwards; so the name lives on in perpetuity.
