Family of John Nicol, watchmaker


I am trying to trace what became of the family of John Nicol, who was a watchmaker in Warrington in the late 19th and early 20th century.
John Nicol was my great-uncle. He was born in Peterhead in 1865, where he trained as a watchmaker. he later moved to Dundee, where he married Christina Nicoll in 1894.
They then moved to Warrington, where their first child Catherine was born in 1896, followed by Jane in 1897, George in 1899, John about 1904 and William about 1906.
In 1901 the family was living at 41 mersey Street, St Elphin, Warrington, and in 1911 they were at 127 Gorsey Lane, Warrington. I have been unable to find out anything more about the family after 1911. I would like to trace any descendants, both to help me fill in gaps in the family history, and to invite them, if interested, to attend a family reunion to be held in June 2011.
