The Grizel/Grace who was born in 1804, she went on to marry Donald Reid in 1831. I think this is her in 1851 with family and her mother:

Donald Reid 45 mason
Grace Reid 45 b. Logierait, perthshire
Isabella Reid 19
Grace Robertson 75 mother in law, Formerly Farmer's Wife b. Logierait, perthshire

Address: Allanach, Logierait

There is a death in Logierait in 1858 for a Grace Robertson/Reid aged 85. Mother's maiden name IMRIE.

I don't know if this connects to John born 1798  :-\ Likely just a co-incidence with couples' names.

Maybe his will and death cert will throw up some more details.

Monica you are a star.
The John Reid I had as date of death 1871 is the one you found died 2nd April 1880.
His Will mentions his eldest son John farming at Hilton of Aldie, his second son living with him and on a shared farm tenancy at Ingrie, near Lesley, Fife. his wife Ann Archibald and daughter Grace.

His death certificate states his Father as John Reid and Mother as Mary Reid  M. SI Robertson, so maybe the John Reid's  wife was not Grizel Robertson and I am going down the wrong road. 

Many thanks for all your help.

I think it is very likely that the informant did not remember the name of John Reid's mother. It is a pain but this happens unfortunately.

You have his baptism don't you? You can view the image of this on www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk

From Scotlands People, this looks like a possible death entry for Ann, wife of John:

Ann Reid/Archibald, aged 71
Mother's maiden name GREIG
1881
444/ 40
Leslie (Fife)

Her death cert should include her parents' names....if known by the informant  ::)

There is this possible entry for her birth www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XYK8-229

I'll check John Reid's baptism and see if his mother is listed.

Yes it is an inscription at our local churchyard
Thanks again

How about this possible marriage for daughter Mary?

Mary Reid and David Anderson
1859
461/ 10
Fossoway and Tulliebole

They look to have a daughter named Grace Robertson Anderson b. 6 May 1872 in Portmoak,Kinross.

Possible 1861:

David Anderson 31 Farmer Of 100 Acres Employing 2 Ploughman 1 Boy 2 Dairy Maids b. Dunning Perthshire
Mary Anderson    30 b. Fossoway
Ann Anderson 3 Months    
...and 5 servants

Address: 1 Well Haugh, Dollar, Clackmannashire

Monica

Added: Baby Ann's birth, on 4 Jan 1861 in Dollar, is registered as Ann Archibald Anderson, called after Mary's mother we would think.
