hi Norrie,thanks for checking,i thought it would be long shot.I did know of the couple you mention although John was the one from Bonnybank buried 1815.Do you think its possible they were buried at Kennoway as that seems the nearest to Bonnybank and Bagriebank ?

Hi Steve     there is an Old Churchyard Cemetery in Kennoway
with stones from mid 1800 to late 1800s

there are 2 Mitchells stones

John Mitchell farmer at Duniface died March 1818 and spouse
Catherine Melville died June 1796

George Mitchell died 1864 age 72 & Janet Swan died 1867 age 63
Children David George & Janet

yes Kennoway is nearest

hi Norrie,no connection with them.Wherever they are buried i think they will be in unmarked graves.Thanks for your help,i think you're doing a grand job.

Cemeteries in Markinch ... Northhall Cemetery ... St Drostans Cemetery ... NorrieG

Hi NorrieG
What a guy you are ... you must have some collection of images?

Can you help with details/images please for :
John Low Hutchison d. 14 Sep 1933 and his wife Christina Drummond d. 19 Dec 1937 and are buried in St Drostans

Their son George d. 13 Feb 1888 age 4+ and is buried in Northall.  If you have that too, it would be a bonus!

Regards

Chiad Fhear
Aye mair questions than answers in a world where the past was a different place - that cannae be revisited!

Family surnames being researched ...
Crawford, Neilson, Lindsay, Reekie, Davidson
Drummond, Laing, Pearson, Tulloch ... will do for starters but there's a whole lot more!
