Hi,
All of my Broun/Brown ancestors would be in most of those cemeteries.
I'm interested in all the Broun/Brown pre-1855 inscriptions if you have them.
One particular one that we have been searching for for years is from James Brown to his grandparents, possibly Ebenezer Broun of Finderlie and Christian Thomson in the old Orwell churchyard.
Being on the other side of the world makes it hard for us to find them.
Anyhow, any information will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Greg.

Hi Buckhyne,
 sorry to get back to you so late.
My Paton connection is
Peter Paton born 1792/1806 and married Janet Geddes and Maybe Janet Millar.
Their daughter Margaret Paton bc1825 Kinross.

There are other children of Peter Paton and both Janets but I know they died in other places.


Cheersd
Jack

I thought Benares was in India but it looks like there's another one in Canada.
There is a google book of Scots/American deaths and this is a wee bit of it.
