Caithness Memorial Inscriptions pre 1855 - Lookup please
« on: Saturday 29 July 06 12:52 BST (UK) »
Hello,

I have just done a trip up to Caithness to try and find some graves for my ancestors, had some fantastic finds and some very frustrating cemeteries as well  ;)

I am desperate to find out what the memorial inscription is for Rutherford in Latheron in the pre 1855 memorial inscriptions as follows:

Rutherford LA2 transcription number 34

Can anyone look it up for me??

I visited the Latheron Cemetery and it is absolutely packed full of graves and headstones and after a long search I found a Mary Rutherford buried there but in 1909, I studiously wrote all the details down but in my haste didn't remember that I was looking for a pre 1855 grave and hence left the cemetery and didn't find another Rutherford!! I feel so silly  :-[

I hope someone can help me out as it is a really long trip back up there....

Hey guys,

Just in case anyone was looking for me, I managed to get my hands on a copy of the memorial insriptions and low and behold they include any headstone that has a birth or a death date before 1855, so the Rutherford inscription I was looking for was indeed the one I spotted on my trip to Latheron!! I feel really silly now  ;)
