Are you still ok for photographing gravesones at Earlston Churchyard.  I am interested in the Scott Family. George Scott and Janet Pringle but any Scott and Pringle would be great, just joined Roots chat and saw your post. Hope you are still out there.

Just realised I made a mistake on my first reply. My GGG Grandfather was George Scott married to Betty Pringle. One of his brothers married a Janet Pringle, Janet and Betty were sisters. 

I think there are other brothers who travelled to Austrailia as my GGrandfather emigrated and my grandmother was born there, coming back to claim inheritance which failed to materialise.

Family stories say that we are related to Sir Walter Scott, not direct decendants but would like to try and link up somehow. Maybe you could suggest look ups.

Thanks
Spandorah

Hi Terry H and Spandorah,
I am new to Rootsweb and I have just come across your posts about photographing headstones in the Graveyard at Earlston, Berwickshire.
Firstly, Terry, I have a headstone in the graveyard - Thomas Scott and his wife Ann Reid, together with their son George Pringle Scott. Thomas died in 1855, Ann in 1846 and George between 1837 and 1843. I hope you can help me, please. I know it is there as I have in my possession a very out of focus shot of it.
Spandorah, Thomas is the son of  George Scott and Betty Pringle. He was one of the sons who went to Tasmania, but after marrying Ann Reid (my great-great-great-aunt), he returned to Scotland with her, leaving his brothers James and George in Tasmania to manage his affairs. My source, a distant cousin, who researched the Reid family and thus the Scotts quite extensively, maintains that they are indeed related to Sir Walter Scott!
Cheers,
Christine Calabria
