Help Deciphering Surname of Birth Witness
« on: Friday 23 November 18 21:42 GMT (UK) »
For my 3rd GGrandfather, Aberdeen 1819.  This is what I've sussed out:

"William Edward laborer Gilcomston and his spouse Margaret Gordon had a son born named Charles baptized by the Rev. Fr. Kidd.  Witnesses James G??? and Andrew Burn."

All thoughts welcome!
