Big thanks for that info..hope that Agnes isn't resting alone there.... :'(need to do a bit more research on that subject..but seems so sad that she is the only one named on the heastone...did George Smail commission the stonemason for his name and their children to be added as and when?...but then he married Helen Turnbull and went on to have another family....he died in Galashiels in 1883 still married to Helen.....
George Smail and Agnes Lillico's daughter Margaret born in 1839 went on to marry Anthony Dodds in Edinburgh in 1862.  I've researched their family down to their son Anthony Dodds who married Maggie Watson in Kirkcaldy Fife in 1891 then down through the line to Dundee. Again just feel so sad that Agnes Lillico is resting so far from her descendants in Dundee and thereabouts and the fact that we don't know who her parents were!  Oh well, at least she is known now to her descendants and that's what it's all about really.

I have a photo of Anges Lillico's headstone. It reads" In memory of Agnes Lillico wife of George Smail Denholm who died June 1851 aged 37 years." I am a descendant of George and his second wife Helen Turnbull.

Hi Jen,
Do you have any information about who her parents are? Do you know who George's parents were? I have some information about who her parents may be but I haven't been able to make a positive connection. George's parents have been eluding me since I started searching many year ago. I believe their son Thomas was an apprentice blacksmith for George and eventually married and moved to England. Their son John may have emigrated to Canada. I have the same info on Margaret that you do. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Are you a descendant of George and Agnes? We may be third or fourth cousins. Did you ever do Ancestry DNA?

Hi Tom
I will need to have a wee look into my research on the family.  The connection is through my daughter's partner Graham Laing who is a descendant of the Smail family.  He asked me to trace his tree a while back as I have been able to get my own family tree back through many generations, all mostly Scottish.  I have never been on Ancestry....mainly Genes Reunited and Scotlandspeople.....will be in touch when I manage to find the details.
Cheers from Scotland

Thanks Jen. I've only been able to trace my family back to George. My grandmother was a Thompson from Stevenson and I've had better luck tracing her family back several generations..I use Scotlandspeople quite often.

Hi Tom

Have you checked George's death cert to try to help you work further back on his line? Some family trees have his death as being on 27 FEB 1883 Galashiels Selkirkshire. George shows in Selkirkshire in 1881.
