Hi All, I did as some question re the above village and my grandparents in a different topic.
I have since found out the it is quite likely that William (Bill) Kirby that is mentioned in the Stone and steam in the black mountians book is in fact a relative.
I know Bill died in 1971 but I wonder if anybody has contact with his family so that I may explore a possible link to the Kirbys - and obtain more info re the Village?

Was there a Daniel Kirby in the family died 1939 ?
Saw a funeral report on him recently, he fought in the Boer Wars.
