Ross & Cromarty / Re: John Elder(mealer) at Agnes Hill Resolis(c1828).

     Thank you that's lovely and much appreciated. I see you also have Matheson's, Charles Elder married Marjory/ May Matheson and their son John became a police constable  in Glasgow he married Jessie Rose at Boleskine Stratherrick Jessie died at Dingwall in 1914 and he later married Katherine MacKenzie , he died in 1930, you never know they could be connected, I think I traced these Mackenzie's to the Applecross area but Katherine was born Ross and Cromarty  keep safe nikitah.

         Sorry just had another look and magnified it , Skoosh i's a B ;D your right. Thank you all again at least with all your help I'm another generation back, I have noticed  that children born to John Elder and Isobel  McKeddy have one baptised at Cromarty in 1784 named Isobel, then there's a big gap to  John 1792, Donald 1795 and Barbra 1799 these are at Resolis, more digging to do. When Mary Paterson died in 1871 she was the widow of John. Keep safe nikitah.

  Skooosh  it doesn't look like a B I would say a C and either - a or - o-or - u, following,  definitely Knockbain.       Forfarian I got the death certificate and its as you said, sadly she died in the poorhouse a pauper. I also have the deaths for the only 2 John Elders in Resolis that fit the time line , possibly father and son, as you know they don't give much detail . 1, John Elder died at G---- of Raddery on the fifteenth and was buried at Rosemarkie on the 16 October 1841 in the 79th year of his age.      2,   John Elder tenant at Wester Raddery died there on the 31st of May1821 and buried in the church yard at Rosemarkie in the 54th year of his age . all from Scotlanspeople. keep safe, nikitah

Thank you shaun. I like that one scoosh. Anyway  I'll try not to confuse myself, easier said than done. Mary Paterson was  born/baptised 1792 , so I'm looking for John Elder born about the same time and place the one that fits is  John Elder 1792  Resolis  Father John Elder, mealer Mother Isobel McKeddy my only problem with this is John Elder and Mary Paterson didn't name a child Isobel.        1,   Jane 1820, the mother is said to be HELEN but I have no doubt it's Mary.           The second child is also Jane 1822,   Jane after Marys mother Jean Bremner.            3,  John 1824 .   4, Donald 1826, after Marys father.              5,  and mine  Charles 1828  , don't know where this comes from,     6 Margaret 1830.      7, Donald. all born Resolis. any help solving this will be much appreciated. stay home stay safe. nikitah.

Ross & Cromarty / John Elder(mealer) at Agnes Hill Resolis(c1828).
« on: Monday 11 January 21 14:30 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, trying to return to my Elder tree ,
I have Charles Elder born Resolis, 14/ 3/ 1828,   Father John Elder, Mother Mary Paterson,   
John is a MEALER at Agnes Hill, 
Looking mealer up tells me , a mealer is " a person rooming at one place and boarding at another" , is there another definition?.     
When John married Mary Paterson  he was said to be a servant at Calmaduthy, Mary was of Resolis.   My question is, was he from another area? or was mealer a description for some one in  farming ? . Keep safe nikitah.

Hi Tomhutton, thanks for your interest , this was a post back in 2013 and though I have more information about Simon and Mary Fraser's family I never got further back, as you say the Fraser name is very common in the area and you really need a lot of luck to get further back., I live in hope. Simon and Mary had a daughter also called Mary who married David Rose master gardener at Farraline. many thanks and keep safe Nikitah
