    Auchenloaning Cottage in Old Monkland
    Auchenloaning Cottage in Old Monkland
    Andrew Mitchell was born in Auchenloaning Cottage in 1821.

    Image of Auchenloaning Cottage supplied by David Crawford who wrote:

    “On doing some internet research, I noticed your 3 times great grandfather (Andrew Mitchell) was born at Auchenloaning Cottage, Old Monkland.  By coincidence, my 2 times great grandfather (Thomas Crawford b1859, d1934) and Great Grandmother Jane Burley Crawford (b1883, d1926) also lived at one of the Auchenloaning Cottages.
     
    My father who is now 78 has a photo of one of the cottages (See attached file) - thought you might be interested.  In the picture is my Great Grandmother (Helen Gilbert who married Daniel Crawford) in the black dress.  I am not sure who the other two are.”
