      nehouse is about 20/25 miles or so south of Glasgow. It's not far from the M74 motorway (freeway) which is the main link from Scotland down to the border with England. This if from Wikipedia :-

      "Stonehouse (Scots: Stanehoose)[1] is a rural village in South Lanarkshire, Scotland. It is on Avon Water in an area of natural beauty and historical interest, near to the Clyde Valley. It is on the A71 trunk road between Edinburgh and Kilmarnock, near the towns of Hamilton, Larkhall and Strathaven."

      We live northeast of Glasgow in a town called Kirkintilloch. Stonehouse is in the same area Motherwell where other members of your family are from. Hope that gives you some idea where it is.

      We still miss Elder Snowden. It is so nice that he has mentioned us in his letters.
