James Napier of Greenleys and Haremuir farms, Benholm,  1863.  Although he and wife janet Strachan are buried in kinneff (they also had Harbourshields Kinneff) I am wondering about a generation before so William Napier?  or Ann Napier? (b 1762 Chapel of Barras but again family connections may have taken her to Benholm)  I am also looking for the burial of Elizabeth Strachan b 1800 married to (Alexander) John Smith who lived in Moathill, Benholm,  in 1863.  also an Isobel Artbuthnot/t born 1744 Benholm married  James Strachan and though they lived at West Mathers farm, St Cyrus, may have had family in Benholm and therefore buried there.  I do not know their deaths. I would estimate from 1785 to the early 1800's.  thank you.

If you don't already have it, I strongly recommend getting the death certificate of John Smith who died in 1855. 1855 certificates contain a lot of information that was not collected in any other year, so they're a bit of a gold mine for family history.
