Am planning a trip to Scotland late this year to research any information on my
grandfather, Major Robert Hunter Clarkson. All I know about him was that he was born in
Ayrshire in 1895, attended the University of Edinburgh, and served in the British Army
during WWI in Palestine and at Gallipoli. He emigrated to the US after the war and secured
a position with the Harvey Organization by means of a recommendation from his former
commanding officer, General Allenby. He settled in New Mexico. I never met him but am
retracing his roots. The only other thing I know about him is that he had a sister named
Christine, and that their parents passed on when they were somewhat young. Any information
would be greatly appreciated!
