Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Rennie family members Aberdeen
« on: Monday 08 April 19 18:22 BST (UK)  »
My great aunt gave me the attached 2 cdv's but was unable to identify which members of the Rennie family from Aberdeen they were...

1) Stern looking woman dated 1876. Could this be Christina Rennie who died 1881 in Portknockie?

2) Man with what appears to be an anchor on his right sleeve. Could this be John Rennie born 21 October 1793 in Banff? His father Gordon Rennie was Mate on the "Union" of Banff, but would surely be too old as he married 21 January 1793 in Cullen? I believe J. Hardie the photographer was operating from around 1868 to 1881...

Can anyone please help with burial places of the following:
David Low born Garvock 22 May 1803 who was drowned in the Den of Morphie 12 January 1874.
He had been the farm grieve at Kirktonhill.
And his wife Helen Watt born St. Cyrus 28 June 1800 who died 20th August 1884 at Kirktonhill.
I am hoping to visit the graveyard and look at the gravestones (if any...).

I am trying to find out more information about Isabella Fraser, and who her parents were.
