Thank you for that info.  Did you see that at the Gravestone itself ?

It does seem that there are 2 Richard Commons, this one apparently born 1749, and another one born (or at least christened) in 1757, at Hownam.

Both of them have been linked to Margaret Armstrong in a few family trees on Ancestry.

If I can get back to the UK one day, I think I will need to make a trip to Castleton cemetery to see if anything else strikes any recognition with me :)
