Fanny MacKenzie and Thomas Skinner are my great aunt and great uncle. I don't know any of Fanny's family so if anyone is related to these MacKenzie's I would like to get in touch. Incidently there is a mistake here, Fanny was 58 when she died not 98, as she was born in 1874. There was a lot of sadness in this family-her siblings died young, her mother died young, she died on Christmas Day having seen her 2 year old son and 9 year old daughter die of diphtheria. Her husband and youngest daughter both survived till a good age.
