Hi Melanie   yes I have that Headstone & Inscription
to check the children I need to know who they married ?
as only Mary is on the headstone.
Headstone Bennochy Cemetery Kirkcaldy

158 In Memory of Catherine GOULD who died  14.1.1870
        wife of Robert SKINNER
        also Daughter Mary died 25.2.1846
        above  Robert SKINNER late superintendent of  this Cemetery who Died 13.10.1876


Hi Norrie,
You are terrific!  Thank you so much for the photo and inscription.  Unfortunately, I do not know much more about the children.  I found them in the 1871 census living in Kirkaldy but after that I have had not much luck.  William married Isabella Johnston but I see his family living in Midlothian in 1881.  John moved to the United States and married Katherine Powers - this is my husband's line.  I really appreciate your time.  One of these days, my husband and I (and his father too) would love to take a trip to visit Fife and to see where his ancestors are from.
Thanks again!

Hello Norrie,
I was so excited when I cam across your posting yesterday.  We live in the United States and, at this point in time, I have no idea when we will ever be able to travel to Scotland to visit Kirkaldy.

My husband's 3rd great grandparents (and possibly his great grand uncles & aunts) are buried in Bennochy Cemetery.

Robert SKINNER (22 Apr 1816 - 13 Oct 1876) Occupation: Sexton at Bennochy Cemetery.  Residence: Cemetery Lodge 
Catherine GOULD Skinner (abt 1809 -14 Jan 1870) Died at residence - Cemetery Lodge.  Cause of death: Bronchitis

Mary (? - 1846), Catherine (1842 - ?), Jean (1844 - ?), Robert (1848 - ?) , John SKINNER (1849- abt 1905 - immigrated to US in 1872), Peter (1851 - ?), William (1854 - ?)

I would really appreciate if you could send me the inscription and photos of the monument for Robert and Catherine Skinner if they are included in your index as well as their children if possible.  Keeping my fingers crossed!!  :)

Thank you!!
