« on: Tuesday 15 November 11 20:51 GMT (UK) »
This new post is a continuation of previous post here www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,183738.0.html. The older post is now closed for new enquiries. Please put all new enquiries on this new post.

There are a number of people who have knowledge and access to records from this cemetery.

Thank you  :)

Thank you Monica! while the other thread was very interesting to read, it was getting very difficult to find anything without a lot of time spent!

I am wondering, if while Lodger has his book out, if he could tell me if there are any other Amos burials other than Jessie Bertram Amos (d. 1915).

I was so lucky in September when we arrived at the cemetery on, yes, a bank holiday, that there was another researcher with small notebook in hand who actually knew where section E was. We found the spot where Jessie was buried, but sadly, no headstone. Just what might have been the remnants of one.

It would be interesting to find out if there were any other family members buried at the cemetery.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Leia,
Just the same as the last time you asked! Only Jessie Craig Amos I'm afraid.

Kia ora Lodger

I have found my way to the new section. The first named people are my family and I expect many of the others will be connected. I knew about the Napier marriage, but not about the death of the child. No, there didn't seem to be a David in the immediate family. I think Alex must have moved away, he may also have emigrated, but he didn't come to New Zealand, although an Aunt of Helen Merrilees did come, but to the North Island and I think prior to her niece. The different spellings are numerous. I am inclined to ignore them. Even within my New Zealand family we have made some minor changes as the surname has become a given name.

I am planning my itinerary now for my extended Scotland visit from July 2012 and will definitely visit the cemetery. Having the plot numbers will be so helpful. Have you any suggestions as to the best people to contact to try to locate Trotter Bank when I arrive? I think where you are describing is around where I was looking on Google maps.

I am overwhelmed by the fact that a stranger in another country can take so much time to provide information for others. This is the second such experience I have had.

Thank you so much.

Hi,
I wonder if anyone could help me locate the graves of the Duncan family who farmed at Cairneyhead.  Father and Mother - William and Janet and offspring Agnes (1792-1873), Janet (1796-1869), James (1797-1885), Thomas (1803-1872) and Margaret (1806-1882).  also the grave of John Wilson, Janet's grandson who died in Cambusnethan in 1925.
Many thanks,
Moragb

Hi morag,

Janet, Thomas, Agnes, Margaret and James are all interred in the private walled burial ground at Cambusnethan, it is situated between the old churchyard and the new cemetery.
They are in a double plot, 158 & 159.
Janet & Thomas are in 158, the other 3 are in 159. All 5 are children of William Duncan and Janet Wilson.

JANET DUNCAN, housekeeper, Cairneyhead, aged 74 years, single.
Interred 10th June 1869.

THOMAS DUNCAN, farmer, Cairneyhead, aged about 70 years, single.
Interred 5th September 1872.

AGNES DUNCAN, housekeeper, Cairneyhead, aged about 70 years, single.
Interred 10th March 1873.

MARGARET DUNCAN, housekeeper, Stane, aged 76 years, single.
Interred 20th November 1882.

JAMES DUNCAN, farmer, Stane, aged 88 years, single.
Interred 11th February 1886.

It may be a red herring but, in the next plot (No.160) is -
EUPHEMIA ROBERTSON, domestic servant, Wishaw Hospital, aged 20 years, single.
Parents - Robert Robertson & Mary Duncan.
Interred 14th March 1874.

Also, I don't have the records for 1925 and you don't give too much information about John Wilson (parents names are always a big help) but could this be the same family?
Plot B495 in the new cemetery.

JESSIE WILSON, 49 Flowerhill, Airdrie, aged 1 year.
Parents - John Wilson and Mary Duncan.
Interred 17th May 1910.

ANNIE F.M. WILSON, Kirkhall, aged 7 weeks.
Parents as above.
Interred 8th January 1915.

In the next plot, B496 is -

MARGARET DUNCAN, aged 74 years, widow.
Parents - John Law & Elizabeth Lyon.
Interred 24th September 1913.

Thank you so much for this.  This is indeed the Duncan family although no mention of their parents - obviously some more digging on my part needed and perhaps I can find a link to the next grave. 
John Wilson's parents were John Wilson and Margaret Smith but he was brought up at Cairneyhead by his grandmother Janet while the parents moved to a farm at Shotts. John, my g grandfather, was born 6/5/1848 at Cambusnethan and his second wife Ellen McKechnie died in Bonkle in 19/3/1934.
Any other information gratefully received but once again thanks for this.
regards,
Moragb

Hi Morag,

Couldn't find any other mention of this family in the burial records, sorry. No mention in the MIs or burial records for the old churchyard, perhaps the parents were interred at Shotts?
