Here's a snip from William Rae's death cert of 1875 showing his parents as Cunningham Rae and Agnes Duncan.

I'm very pleased that these records didn't get lost in the SP chnge - many of my others did!

Im on holiday just now with no access to my records, but from memory there are two Cunningham Raes who seem to get mixed up by researchers the tailor who marries Agnes Duncan and another one who marries Grace Logan.

Thanks for the speedy reply.

Has anyone been able to work out which one is which and who belongs to which family? Don't spoil you holiday fretting but if you have any ideas when you get back, I'd be pleased to hear them.

The Cunningham Rae who married Grace Logan seemed to work on Drummond Farm in Kirkcudbright -would I be right about that?

Thanks for your speedy reply.

Does anyone know who this Agnes Duncan is? And who is a member of her family?

Michael ~

What was the date of death of the Cunningham Rae who married Grace Logan, please?  And could you give any possible census info on them.

Cunningham Rae (widower of Grace Logan)  who died in 1903, aged 98, appears to be the son of William Rae and Agnes Duncan.  I think that William could have been entered in error for Cunningham as we have info on Cunningham Rae (the elder)  and Agnes Duncan's  marriage:

From first post by tkgafs

Quote
According to latter day saints they married 12 OCT 1777 Kirkcudbright, Kirkcudbright, Scotland.

I have seen a couple of trees online which suggest Agnes Duncan's parents are John Duncan and Isobel Ross, but never any source which confirms it


Also, further info posted earlier on this thread from daughter Catherine's  death

I have had one thought as Cunningham was a tailor, which is confirmed from Catherines death cert,

Can't find a baptism that fits for Cunninghm (died 1903). This is the nearest -

Rerrick - 9 June 1808 Cunningham Rae s of William Rae and Margaret McCune.

Two marriages are showing for the elder and younger Cunningham ~

Kirkcudbright 12 Oct 1777 to Agnes Duncan

Rerrick 30 Jne 1848 to Grace Logan

No marriages are showing for a William Rae marrying either a Margaret McCune or an Agnes Duncan. However, a high % of marriages are not shown in the available records.

Hi, Gadget,

That's about as far as I got. Do you know who provides the data about parents to the Registrar? Is it the informant. If it is, I was just wondering if James Rae, the son who signed for Cunningham's death, could have given his great-grandmother's name rather than his grandmother's name? i.e. he said it was William Rae and Agnes Duncan rather than William Rae and Margaret Rae? Possible?
