Aberdeenshire / Re: Janet/Jessie Fyvie b 1844
« on: Thursday 16 May 19 13:48 BST (UK)  »
Hi All, I've been researching my 'Fyvie' Family Tree for a good few years now and have collated a huge amount of information. I've followed the Fyvie's from Aberdeenshire to Angus, Edinburgh, Glasgow, down into England, across to Ireland, to Canada, America, and Australia etc.

I've also followed other branches, like the Mutch, Crichton/Crighton, Bruce, Scroggie, Brebner/Bremner, etc.

I am more than happy to share any information freely. I've been building the Tree on FamilySearch which is free.

Fife / Re: Cupar Parish Church MIs
« on: Thursday 14 February 19 18:51 GMT (UK)  »
Been researching my Family for past couple of years and traced them to Cupar/Kemback area. Due to health and now disability am restricted in travel. Therefore am asking if anyone can help and has information on Wilson's of Fife.
I live in Dunbar and was taken for a very short visit to Cupar church where I took pictures of (18) James Wilson & Jane Scott, & (18) Thomas Wilson & Mary Ann Robertson's headstones, but they don't seem to be link to my branch.
My family are
(1) David Wilson (b.abt1691) m.1716 Catharine Rodger (b.abt1695)
(2) David Wilson (b.1719 Ceres) m.1737 Jannet Peatie (b.1718 Leuchars)
(3) John Wilson (b.1745 Ceres d.1812 Kemback) m.1768 Agnes Gibson (b.abt1747 d.abt1824)
(4) John Wilson (b.1780 Kemback d.bfr 1861) m.? Jean Cunningham (b.abt 1792 Kemback d.aft11861)
(5) John Wilson (b.1821 Kemback d.1878 Inveresk, Musselburgh) m.1847 Cupar, Janet Ness (b1825 St Andrews d.aft1891 England)
I have much, much more information to share with those interested. Because the family lives and work in and around Cupar/Kemback I suspect they may have been interred there.
