Rosina-Drew-wCentenarian Rosina Drew was a major benefactress in Helensburgh and Rhu. 

This picture of her was found during the summer of 2011 when a house in the Kansas-Missouri area of the United States was being cleared. It was sold on ebay to an anonymous Helensburgh buyer.

On the back of the picture is hand-written: "Mrs Rosina Drew of Helensburgh, Scotland. Taken at age one hundred, died at the age of one hundred and one years."

After considerable research, much has been found out about her life story. See 'Centenarian knew Sir Walter Scott' in the People category of the Heritage section of this website.
