    Default OALSON/SHAND

    Can anyone tell me about the origins of the OALSON name in Latheron?
    I have a William SHAND married Christina/Christian OALSON in 1827 in Latheron.
    Christian I believe was the daughter of Donald OALSON.
    William & Christian had 5 children between 1827 -1836.
    William died 1881 but I have not found Christian's death as yet.
    James the third child came to NZ in 1860 after marrying Margaret CUNNINGHAM.
    I am curious to know about the OALSONs does anyone know anything of the origins of this family?
    William's father James came from Elgin Moray.

    Hi Marchbank
    This is way down the track but perhaps worth keeping for later tree results?
