1) E-mail from Rachel Spacey "I was given a tip by Mima who is a distant relation and who I corresponded with some years back. Our common ancestors are George Pringle and Agnes Redpath. I am a descendant of their son George and Margaret Weatherstone. They had children including James Nicol Pringle (b.1886 d.1914) who is my great grandfather."
