Hi Jim,
The Gove and Watt family in Kincardinshire has many sons that have similar names.
For example there are 2 Andrew GOVES both of Johnshaven, Benholm. One born on the 5th of July 1849 the other in Oct 1851. I believe these 2 are cousins, their parents William GOVE and John GOVE being the sons of William GOVE and Christian nee MUFFERT. A number of researchers have recorded the Andrew born in 1851 as the son of William GOVE and Elizabeth WATT; when in fact he is the son of John GOVE and Catherine nee DOUGLAS.
I have seen the names you mentioned but have not looked to see if they are closely connected to the family line I have researched. One of the problems I found in researching the line I have followed is that the children seem to leave home in their early teens or even earlier. Just why this is the case I have not been able to determine. The William Gove and Elizabeth WATT family that I have researched had seven children that I know of. Of these only one remained in Scotland. James, William, Robert and David all migrated to Gippsland, Victoria Australia. Elizabeth Law McEWAN nee GOVE married to James McEWAN a plumber and her brother Andrew GOVE a plumber migrated to the Detroit Wayne Michigan area. Helen KEILLER nee GOVE lived at 19 Market Street, Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. 
It is quite possible that there is a link going back perhaps to William GOVE and Christian MUFFERT, but the records get much harder to determine around that era unless one is able to find death and marriage certificates.
If you are able to find a connection then I would be interested in hearing from you. However I have just about concluded my research into the Gove family.
My interest was due to the fact that my grandfathers sister married a John Lawson GOVE, and that I lived in the Sale - Clydebank area as a youth where the Gove men had farms. My uncles worked on these farms when they were young men before world war 2.
If I am able to help you with details I am happy to share.
Kind regards
Leon

Hi Jean
I am looking for any Morrices who lived in Johnshaven.
I read through previous posts and you mention that there are lots of Morrices buried there.
I have been able to go back as far as James Morrice who married Jean Ballow in 1750. Jean Ballow was born in 1726 and buried in 1795 but I cannot find anything for James as in DOB or DOD.
I found this is an earlier post and this is the Jean Ballow married to my James Morrice. (Jean Ballow 10.1.1795 69 leaving four sons & five das behind her, by h Jas Morice (in) 1796) Does the (in) mean interred?
I have found all the children but would love to keep tracing the family back.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Dallas

Good Morning Dallas,

I think it means that the stone was erected in in 1796 by her husband, I will check the stone for you to be sure.

Jim,
I am your 4th cousin.  I know that we are distantly related, but I made a Facebook page for our lineage, as a way for us to all link up and chat.  Keep in mind that the page is also for the Byrnes, since I am a descendant of the Byrnes.  I realize that you're not, but the Byrnes are still related to you.  The page is https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100009461150858
Thanks!
Barbara

Jean,

I am particularly interested in any further information on George Barclay and Isabelle Thomson who were married in April 1743 in Benholm. Both "were of this parish" in the Benholm OPR.  I know they later lived in St. Cyrus, but any information on their parentage would be great - this is as far back as I can get with my family from this branch at the moment.

Andy,

There's no gravestone unfortunately.
I presume that you have seen the entry for their marriage?
Just done a quick check on family search and there's only 1 entry for George Barclay in Benholm and that was 1695, a bit too early I think for your George, but the Barclay surname crops up a lot in St Cyrus and there are a couple of possibilities for your George, 1711 & 1716
