Hi Norrie
 My great grandfather John Eccles died on May the 27th 1935 his last known address was
100 station rd thornton parish of Markinch. Do you know what graveyard he would have been buried in? Or you you have him in your file.
Thanks angela.
Hi Angela he would have been more than likely be buried in Markinck new Cemetery
unless he had a burial plot elsewhere where did he live before comming to Thornton
who was his Wife ? I have nothing in my files for him and he is not listed as having a headstone in Markinch Cemetery but he could be buried there.

Hi Angela  no still can,t find John Eccles, have looked at Culross Cemetery and a number of indexes
on Scottish Monmuntal Inscriptions for other cemeteries but no Eccles headstones,
good to see your still looking since your last enquire in 2011

Hi there are no Rodger headstones in the area around Markinch Church
yes the may have been buried there but they did no raise headstones for the departed
headstones at that time cost a lot of money.
Northhall Cemetery in markinch was the next Cemetery to be opened
but still no Rodger stones in my index ,? who are you actually looking for,
Norrie

Hi Norrie

Thanks for looking anyway.

As you ask, I'm specifically looking for a David RODGER, shoemaker, of Scoonie who married Agnes DALRYMPLE of Markinch in Jan 1801. Agnes' dates are 1773 - 1849, but she died in Edinburgh so I doubt she's buried in Fife. I suspect David may be the Markinch burial below:

RODGER, DAVID (58): at Coaltown; 3 Nov 1840; in Dalrymple ground.

From IGI, there are two of David & Agnes' children whom I can't trace into the censuses:
Magdalene Rodger bapt 1813 Markinch
David Rodger bapt 1815 Markinch

So this Markinch burial is a possible candidate for David 1815 (and for an unknown younger sis also Magdalene):
ROADGER, DAVID (7): son of David Roadger, Coaltown of Balgonie; 17 Oct 1822; in grave of sister, Magdlone Rogar, interred 4 May 1808 (No 32, 1808), left side of David Dalrympll at Meetings, interred 29 July 1821 (No 35, 1821)

In fact I suspect the majority of those Rodger burials are relatives.

There's also a Scoonie burial that I was going to ask about, as a possible for the above Magdalene b1813:
1824 Rodger
At Leven on the 25th October died Magdalene Rodger and was buried on the 27th in the Church yard of Scoonie


I've found your Scoonie cemetery postings on other forums, but can't seem to find the right thread here. If you'd care to point me in the right direction, I'd be very grateful.

Cheers

Hi NorrieG

I am interested in learning about the Shields family in Markinch, and wondered if you have any information on David Shields and Isobel Duncan.  I don't have any dates for David, but believe that Isobel died in 1846.
Thanks,
Mollypip
