William Graham residing in Craggan??? 1862
« on: Saturday 19 March 16 03:33 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I'm new to roots chat. I'm searching for Craggan?? in Kincardine parish, county of Ross. (hard to decipher on marriage document). Thinking it was an estate, but can find no reference to it.
William Graham resided there in1862 when he married Grace Ross. can anyone help me locate it plse? They were married at Rosehall ( Free Church) I think & if anyone can tell me where to find photos etc that would be wonderful.

Welcome to RootsChat :)

Looking at your relative in the census after he married I think he is described as a shepherd and therefore may have been working in a farmstead

I did find this reference to Craggan, a farmstead to the east of Kincardine, however it is in Edderton Parish http://www.scotlandsplaces.gov.uk/record/rcahms/13856/craggan/rcahms?inline=true#map-wrapper

This is more detailed map on the National Library of Scotlands map images http://maps.nls.uk/view/74428351#zoom=5&lat=3041&lon=13366&layers=BT

Good luck Kay

Hi, I'm very new to Roots. I am researching my great -grandfathers history.
William Graham baptised 23/1/1827. Father Thomas, M Grizzel McLeod  Parish Alness 057 Ref 20/34  (SP).
If someone can help me locate the church, I would appreciate it so much! I'd  love to visit it(or the grounds) when I visit Scotland later this year.
Also, his 1862 marriage certificate  to Grace Ross shows him residing in Craggan ???????can anyone help with locating that please????
Many thanks.          Annie

Welcome to Rootschat Annie.

Craggan is in Morayshire Scotland :)

Alness is in Ross and Cromarty and there is a ruined parish church there and a photo of the

churchyard at rosscromartyroots.co.uk

Do you have William Graham and Grace in any of the census?

Joy
Added I see that there is a Craggan in Kincardine Ross and Cromarty. After reading your previous post I think that is the one referred to in the marriage cert.

Thank you for that clue. I'm still looking for info on Thomas Graham and Grizzel Mcleod....keep getting distracted! ??? I have only found a marriage entry in Oct 1819 and the birth of a son John in same year,with little other detail. Can anyone suggest a way of looking for their parents names and siblings etc. please? ???
