I think the old saying - 'Where there's a will, there's a way', sums up your wee adventure Fergie!

I share your feelings on the vandalism etc. Unfortunately, the 'cooncil' workers are sometimes just as bad as I've seen them skelp around on those sit-on lawnmower type of things (not specifically in St. Ninians) and bits of stones ping all over the place when they clatter into them.

You've put me in the notion of giving St. Ninians another wee visit  ;D

Anne

Good luck to you then.
You're obviously a lot younger and sprightlier than I am.     :) :D ;D

Thanks for posting these photos Fergie (and the previous ones).
I enjoy looking at photos like this.

Ages ago, I toyed with the idea of setting up a thread purely to accommodate photos of cemeteries - I even set up a poll and it was generally thought to be a reasonable idea.
I got distracted and I never got around to it.
There always seems to be something else to research.

To your point, sadly, vandalism and lack of attention in churchyards seems to be the name of the game.  Having said that, I've seen a lot in worse state than St Ninians if your photos are indicative of the overall condition of the site.   

Congratulations on your 'panoramic' photo.  It's like the back of my head - you can only see the join if you look closely.  ;D

Hi all, I am extremely as of 5 mins ago, new to this website, and have a glimpse of hope, I'm wondering with anyone with indexes of St Ninians cemetary have any listings for John Stewart Wife Janet Thomson, they married in 1807 St Ninians, but other than their names marriage and children we know nothing! Fingers crossed!! Am desperate for something even an age of Headstone to give us a rough birth year, this is my husbands direct line, and would love to follow it for him
Thanks Amy Stewart

Hello Amy,

Welcome to the wonderful world of Rootschat!  :)

I looked through the pre-1855 Monumental Inscriptions for St. Ninians but couldn'd find a match for John Stewart and Janet Thomson.

Male Stewarts listed are:

1.
W. Stewart 1848

2.
Andrew Stewart died 4th April 1863 aged 64
His wife Margaret Hodge died 6th May 1892
Son John died 26th February 1916 aged 73
His wife Janet Cunningham died 17th November 1934
Their son William died 2nd September 1902 aged 17
Thier son James died 23rd April 1917 aged 33

3.
John Stewart & wife Helen Jaffray (1829)

Do any of the above fit in to be your couple's children?

Hi Kate,

Don't know whether this will be any good . . . . .

(Grey granite stone)


Cecelia Frances Forrester Tod died at Newhouse, Stirling on 13th June 1891 age 35 wife of Alexander Galbraith

It's the only Tod(d) MI listed.

Hello again Anne, thanks very much for the stewart stuff! Unfortunately none of them fit my lot! Are there anymore stewarts in it? I can give you some more names if you like!! You do a wonderful thing for people like us in NZ that dont have the resources!
Thanks Amy
