I just want to thank you Kathy for sharing this photo of a true Scotsman. I love anything and everything Scottish, but this photo is wonderful.

"Lousa" was probably a typo by the submitter for "Louisa". I think she means that he was Scottish, moved to Spain and shortened the name "McGill" to "Gil" and then moved to Mexico. From other photos, it seems that the family ended up in Northern California.
