What else do you know about her? Was McKimmie her married or her maiden name? How old was she? How long had she lived in Forres?

And when you say you have 'tried Cluny Hill', what source(s) have you looked at?
Never trust anything you find online (especially submitted trees and transcriptions on Ancestry, MyHeritage, FindMyPast and other commercial web sites) unless it's an image of an original document - and even then be wary because errors can and do occur.

Have a record interred Clunyhill Cemetery Forres
Death date 24 August 1864 you might want to amend the death year on your post

Nothing showing up on findagrave so doesn't look like there was a grave stone

The record indexed in LIBINDX http://libindx.moray.gov.uk/mainmenu.asp is from three sources

First, Forres Cluny Hill burials
MF = Microfilm
A = parish registers and burial records
Fo = Forres
3 means it's the third microfilm in the series

Second, an announcement in the Forres Gazette on 30 August 1864
FG = Forres Gazette

Third, an announcement in the Elgin Courant and Courier on 2 September 1864
Courant = Elgin Courant and Courier

If there had been a gravestone it too would have been indexed.

For a full list of the codes go to Advice/Help then Abbreviations
