Patricia,

I've had a look and it seems that it would have been quite easy for it to have been missed. The entries seem to have been made retrospectively, either by going round the parish and doing a sort of birth census or from the Kirk Session records as I was led to believe, if you pm me with your email address I'll send you a typical page for the latter years, so you can see what I mean.

Good morning Jean,

I have just started looking into my family history when i saw your post from Feb 2008 post #55. Isabella Stephen, Catherine and Helen/Ellen Crichton are part of my family tree.
I was wondering if you had a photo of the headstone from 2008 ish? I was in that area yesterday and the headstone is now missing half of the inscription.

Thank you

Ellie

Good Morning Ellie,

I'll have to dig out my files and have a look - if i don't get back to you. Don't hesitate to give me a reminder, I'm so busy at work these days there's not enough hours in the day. There is a guy, who took photos of all the stones, but I can't remember his name, there might be a link on here somewhere but I might find it when I start looking.
