Wood Family

My father’s grandmother was May Isabelle Gourlay Dunn (known as Queenie), born in Wimbledon, England, 1880-1948.  (Adirondack Daily Enterprise: 12/8/1948, spelled her name as just listed, although the article below lists her name as “Isabella May Gourlay Dunn”).  Her father was Tom Dunn, as you know, and brothers, John Duncan Dunn and Seymour Dunn.  Her daughter, Dad’s mother, was May (or Maisie) Elizabeth Van de Watering (b. 1899 – 1993)  May Isabelle’s first husband, May Elizabeth’s father, you listed as Casper Van De Watering.  Her second husband was William Henry Webb, and third husband, Adolph Glaser Hupfel.    Maisie (May Elizabeth) married Walter Klemmer Wood, and their only son was Gordon Walter Wood, our Dad.  I’ll look for a good photo of Dad with my sister, Pamela, and myself.

From the article “The Dunns were more than a family business”, http://www.northberwick.org.uk/dunn.html
“Tom Dunn married Isabella Gourlay and they moved to Royal Wimbledon Golf Club living in Windmill Cottage where John Duncan Dunn (1872), William Gourlay Dunn (1874) and Isabella May Gourlay Dunn (1880) were born. Tom Dunn employed two men as club makers and his 17 year old brother Willie Dunn was his apprentice. Tom Dunn and his family returned to North Berwick in 1882 where Norah Eleanor Dunn (1886) and Seymour Dunn (1882) were born.”
