    Sorry.........no Gillespies in the MIs for Caithness anywhere.

    Only checked the Thurso book for the Murrays, and no luck, but will look at the others later in the day.
    Thank you so much for that, Oddquine, I really appreciate your effort. It's given me a bit more information about the family. As I have his will, I know that Donald Miller died in 1833 rather than 1835, but I imagine that the dates were hard to read, and a 3 can easily look like a 5. Taking the age of 72 away from 1833 (as I didn't know his age of death before), will hopefully narrow down baptism possibilities *fingers crossed*.

    Thank you again.

    Kindest regards,

    Afternoon Kirsty,

    I can send you all the Miller births from Thurso in Excel form if that would help you. There are several men whose occupation is given as Ship master and one in particular mentions the Sloop Alexander of Thurso. You can send me a private message with your email address if you are interested.

    I'd just like to cancel my request regarding the Murray's and others, Oddquine (you mentioned you would look them up later for me), because I was a bit naughty and treated myself to the Thurso MI book. Some girls buy shoes for fun

    Dear Davie - I've just found a ggg g/father Peter Clark, Mid Clyth, who was married to Mary Sutherland (married probably about 1770-80) Do you know if there are any references to the many Clarks around that area at that time in the MI's for mid Clyth and whether there is any detail re. family relationships in the MIs? My ancestor was their son Henry b.abt 1805, who became a baker in Aberdeen.
    Thanks

    Question

    Hello Davie,

    I’m wondering if there are monumental inscriptions on record for any of the following forebears of mine who died before 1855?

    John Thain, died Ackergill, Wick 1841-1850 (b 1797)
    Catherine More (née Ryrie), died Sarclet, Wick 1851-1855 (b1791)
    David Cormack, died Thuster, Wick 1806-1841 (b 1769) and his wife Jean (née Wier) d 1851-1855 (b 1769)
    John Weir, died 1841-1851 Wick (b 1766) and his wife Jean (née Cormack) d 1806-1841 (b 1774)
    Jean Weir (née Sutherland) died Thuster, Wick 1827-1835 (b 1798)

    Any information would be greatly appreciated

    Cormacks from Wick in late 1700s? Please check your Wick cemetery books to see if you have records for Donald Cormack or Catherine McLeod who sired Donald Cormack, born 23 Dec 1810 in Wick, and four other children. We have nearly zero info on Catherine McLeod and her husband (other than that marriage was on Jan 20, 1810 in Wick) and we have even less on their forebears so anything would help!.....from George Cormack

    ed D.A. and G Cormack imo of fa Don 23.12.1832, mo Cath McLeod 7.2.1848."

    unfortunately no ages given
    Erected by D.A. and G. Fits with the sons Donald Alex & George if I have correct family?
