Hi Alan14578,

re Ettrick Kirkyard.

I am tracing the Amos Family

Elizabeth Amos who died at  5 Trevallen Terrance, Hawick ,1912 age 23 was my Great Grandmother.

After visiting the kirkyard myself i found an error in the information you have been given.

"James AMOS,d. Upper Tofts Hall,Hawick,6.Apr.1914,age 73." should read "JOHN AMOS"

I am srtuggling to find his parents who are THOMAS AMOS & JANET (Nee AMOS)

Any help would be greatly appreciated ... kjdhawick
Amos - Ettrick
Donaldson - Teviotdale/Langholm
Jackson - Eskdalemuir
Howden -Roxburghsshire
