Wow ...
John Grierson  married Janet Lockerbie  1804 in Lochmaben.  He was the son of William Grierson.She the daughter of James Lockerbie and Grace Bell. The 1851 census shows members of the family living in Hightae .  I thought they might be in the Lochmaben cemetery.

The Grierson name shows a variety of spellings ..Grirson , Grearson, Greerson so Grier would be possible. The same applies to Lockerbie , Lockerby etc.

So ... all possibilities are worthy of a look.
Thanks so much
Dorothy

The DGFHS booklets are not expensive.   See http://www.dgfhs.org.uk/publications.asp
The Lochmaben MIs are 2.5 UK pounds and the OPR  less at just 2.0 UK pounds.
There is postage to add of course but at 75gm and 60gm it won't break the bank.
Royal Mail are about to whack up their prices at the end of the month so I suggest buying sooner rather than later.
