Hi Kirsty,

Just to make sure I have this right .... was your Janet b 1872 the sister of Peter b 1874 and Margaret b 1876, both who died young and are mentioned on the MI at Minnigaff?

If so, can I ask why you do not have an exact date of birth for her? :-\

Added:
I just checked Familysearch and they have her birth as 18 Jan 1873 Minnigaff.

I have a note that William married Sarah after Martha died in 1876. I have them in the 1881 and 1891 censuses, but I don't have mention of a child called Janet b 1873, though they have a son called Peter.  :-\

Is this the family of your Janet?

Do you have Janet in the censuses?

Just to add in case anyone else comes across this thread in the future ... sadly the Thomas b 1859 that BarlessFamily has in her tree does not appear to be related to this branch of Lamonts.

I only found out about Janet from the headstone and then her marriage certificate. I estimated her birth year based on her age at marriage (she was 32) and on the headstone. Witnesses at the marriage were Lilias Blaen and Murray Cullen.
I do not have any census records for her. I have not done any further research into Janet's family as it is not my direct line. It is one a in a long list of things to do when I have spare time!

I thought that given the location and the parent's names matching there was a good chance that she belonged to the Lamont family that you were researching but don't have any further info to add just now I'm afraid. I do have a photo of the headstone somewhere but it eludes me at present.
