descendants of William Mcdowell Garton (born 1853)

My great granddad was William Mcdowell Garton (born 1853) and married to Frances Simpson (born 1852) in 1877. I've made fantastic progress with my family tree since Pauline in Australia contacted me and informed me that she was a descendant of William's half brother.

I'm still try to 'piece together' information about my Granddad's siblings with the help of an aunty and ancestry.co.uk. My granddad was the youngest son of William and his name was Arthur. I have traced the daughter - in - law of his brother William. Herbert died in the First World War. That leaves James, Ada (never married?), Charlotte who's married name was Jackson and Elizabeth who's married name was Harrison.

Just wondered if someone 'logging in' was one of the descendants of above. Would love to hear from you. Would happily share what I've discovered so far.
