Duncan Williamson's aunt Rachel was brought back after running away with a man and committed suicide aged forty-six.
Duncan Williamson's father's youngest sister, Rachel, ran away with Johnny Burke. Duncan's father was married with two children at the time, but he chased the runaways and caught up with them at the top of the Rest and Be Thankful. He gave Johnny Burke a beating and took his sister back to her parents. He did not want her to leave Argyll, though Johnny Burke was not a bad man. Rachel never looked at another man, and committed suicide aged forty-six, after her parents had died.
