    Notes 
    • We know John had a daughter who married a J. McP. Scott, from his obit. We know this dau. is Margaret from the letter of Robert Anderson, who wrote on Aug 15, 1932: "I have a cousin in Toronto, Ont. Canada, Mrs. Margaret Scott, address 537 Broadview Ave., who gave me about all this information. She is at present in Scotland but should be back in Toronto about Oct 1st." To confirm this, we have a newspaper notice from Toronto that states "Mrs. Scott of Toronto, daughter of the late John Wanless of Toronto and granddaughter of the late William Wanless, for many years schoolmaster at Longformacus Village, Berwickshire, has been on a visit to what she still calls her "homeland". Before she left the Border village, she presented all the schoolchildren with a souvenir of her visit." [no date, in the Pringle scrapbook in possession of Sally Hunter]
