Canada / Re: Researching Adam Robertson Fraser Sailed on Melita to Quebec 1925.

The Hugh Alexander Fraser born 1882 at Invertromie, Kingussie, Scotland grandchildren might be interested in seeing an image of his sister Edith J Fraser who sadly pre deceased him by more than two decades. nw_whiskers

Dear bbeattie, Mary Carnegie daughter of William Carnegie, Farmer and Christian Macher died at St James Place, Brechin on 21 Feb 1869 aged 90 years. She was married to James Don, Master Blacksmith. Their son James was the witness on the Official Death Certificate. There are lots of Mary Carnegies in the records so it is VERY easy to get them mixed up and tied into the above Alexander line.
Happy hunting for the real Mary Carnegie that goes with this Alexander Family Tree. What makes you think that John Alexander her husband died 1841 as we know very little about the both of them other than a Marykirk marriage 1798.  nw_whiskers

Dear ryanh315, I take it that you are looking "specific names and dates" like I have in the attached posts. Yes, William Cramond, Schoolmaster, Cullen did a number of books for the New Spalding Club which may be subject to Copyright as they come up on etc. He certainly did the Old Churchyard at Banff as I was able to borrow a leather bound copy from the Library some years ago but I don't think that option is open these days. Short extracts from such sources are possible as reference material so  that you have a few worthwhile options open to you.
Anyway, if you can be a bit more specific with names, dates and places you might get a bit more help with your research. Best wishes, nw_whiskers

Dear ryanh315, Did you get what you were looking for on the Whitehills and Banff headstones as there are a few list around including William Crammond Books (around 1886) that he did for Banffshire. nw_whiskers

Ref:- The subject matter has drifted away from Alexander Ogilvie Stevenson & Barbara Stevenson from Banff, Scotland so I think it is time to CLOSE the subject out even although Tartan Cloth is close to my heart!

Many thanks to everybody for their contributions, nw_whiskers

The death of a John Stevenson aged 74 in 1938 at Aberdeen Southern District Ref 168/2 283 is recorded on the ScotlandsPeople web site looks like a possible hit in the right direction. His Mothers Maiden Name is not recorded in the short form information from that site. Obviously, the death certificate is there at a cost for his relatives.

A ScotlandsPeople Web site login could be worth investing a few pounds in to get at the Official Records on John Stevenson, Mason at Inverurie from the 1901 Census onwards. A grave location with a Headstone could be helpful but that sadly does not look to be in prospect if he never married etc., but I could be very WRONG about that.

Best wishes, nw_whiskers

Ref: So, beginning with John Stevenson (father of Margaret Stevenson, b. 1898): he was named on Margaretís birth registration as a mason, residing at 17 Constitution St, Inverurie. Fortunately for us, he was still at that address in the 1901 census.

From the above John Stevenson age 47 appears in the Inverurie 1911 Census so that could be him even although I haven't gone into this matter in more detail.

Hope this helps, nw_whiskers

Dear Calhun, Do you reckon that your Stevenson fellow had connections to Banffshire in Scotland where a great number of them were into farming in one form or another just like Alexander and Barbara Stevenson in the subject of this post. I note that you have your fellow leaving Ireland about 1818 with no first name?
I hope that the other two replies that you have are of help to you.  nw_whiskers

It is fairly certain that Adam Robertson Fraser returned to the UK by 1939 but we are not sure if there are "departure records" for Canada. Yes, we have been on the Canada "arrivals database" with good success. Many thanks for your thoughts, nw_whiskers
