I am looking for Douglas in Benholm there are a series of William Douglas's who are shoemakers. William Douglas & May (Majory) Nor(r)ie, William Douglas & Catharine Blues, he was a white fisherman and his brother Alexander R Douglas, shoemaker.  Our Douglas line then left Benholm late 1800s  and are the line to Douglas Baker Auchenblae and Laurencekirk, to whom I am related

I hope that something is of use - there's such a lot of good info!

I have almost completed transcribing the post 1855 stones, but I have not indexed them yet, so you'll have to bear with me whilst I check what I've done so far to see if your names crop up. I'll also check the plan to see if your names are amongst the ones not done yet.

Hi JeanP,

The Forsyth's, John 1868 age 66, Mary 1887 age 87, son Duncan after 1891 about 60, daughter Elizabeth after 1891 about 56.
There are a number of others after 1881, unless they were buried elsewhere.

Stephen, Margaret nee Forsyth 1887 age 48, husband William after 1891.

Anything at all, when ever you can.

Barry

Hello again Barry,

Barry, there are 2 Stephen plots marked on the kirk plan (no Forsyth though), but I've not transcribed them yet.

So at the week-end I'll go down and have a look if there's any stones.
