Patricia,

I've had a look and it seems that it would have been quite easy for it to have been missed. The entries seem to have been made retrospectively, either by going round the parish and doing a sort of birth census or from the Kirk Session records as I was led to believe, if you pm me with your email address I'll send you a typical page for the latter years, so you can see what I mean.

Good morning Jean,

I have just started looking into my family history when i saw your post from Feb 2008 post #55. Isabella Stephen, Catherine and Helen/Ellen Crichton are part of my family tree.
I was wondering if you had a photo of the headstone from 2008 ish? I was in that area yesterday and the headstone is now missing half of the inscription.

Thank you

Ellie

Good Morning Ellie,

I'll have to dig out my files and have a look - if i don't get back to you. Don't hesitate to give me a reminder, I'm so busy at work these days there's not enough hours in the day. There is a guy, who took photos of all the stones, but I can't remember his name, there might be a link on here somewhere but I might find it when I start looking.

My husband has a lot if Douglas from Johnshaven in his ancestry. There is a William Douglas here in Johnshaven who was a bakerand descendants of the. Douglas family lived in Johnshaven till at? Least the 1960 s  the last one I can think if was Gladys Douglas. My husband's grandfathe!r was raised by the Douglas family and to this day my husband and several others have Douglas in their name. Some of the family went to live in Gourdon.

[Welch Cottage and Hay Cottage were built by that family. The houses still have that name.

Hi Lynda,

Pre 1855 Gravestone index has:

Alex Reid shipmaster lost at sea near the Isle of Bornholm 13.11.1872 aged 44 -- wife ---(w)elch died --------- their son George d Montrose 21.2.1900 45 (west side) s Douglas d saffi Morocco 11.1.1901 37, da Isabella Anderson d Montrose 13.11.1904 38, da Annie Largie d Johnshaven 20.4.1906 46, s David d Brentford Essex 17.2.1930 63, Susan Jane d Johnshaven 22.6.1934 78 (widow of Geo Reid)

Also in the notes:
Testaments: Benholm was in the St Andrews Commissariot and the following were noticed in that index - Wm Welsh at Burnhead of Benholm, 1733

and I have transcribed this:

IN MEMORY OF
ROBERT GREIG WELCH WHO DIED JUNE 30 1893
SON OF DAVID WELCH AND ANN HAY WELCH, JOHNSHAVEN
ALSO OF HIS SONS DAVID 1915 & JAMES DOUGLAS 1916

If any of these are connected let me know and I'll get you a photo.

Jean :)

Hello, i'm searching for Strachan/napier/Smith families who farmed around Benholm for much of the 1800's.  so there may be burials in the kirkyard.
