RE: C F Collett (#95439683)
Just helping people out. BTW, I seem to have failed at making a proper sentence in my last message. It's good you understood what I was trying to say.

This memorial page seems to be the same as Clive Franklyn Collett (#59790028). Perhaps you could for a merger of the two?

RE: Alexander MacInnes

Thanks for your reply. Reason for my query was because Margaret Wallace's spouse was given on death as aged 64 (her son) and not 87 per headstone.

Alexander MacInnes
Birth: unknown
Death: Feb. 27, 1958
Aged 64 years >>> need changing to 87

Alexander d. 1965 aged 64 & John d. 1985 aged 70 on same headstone, are probably sons of the above.

Alexander snr. father almost certainly Neil McInnes bap 1814 Ulva, Kilninian parish Mull, d. 1879 Carrington. Neil's wife Helen McArthur was born/bap 1832 Tiree, and they married 1854 Carrington.

Neil and brothers Charles & Hector were in Carrington for the 1841 Census

Census, 1841.
Carrington - Midlothian

I'd appreciate the use of the Mac/McInnes headstoe pic(s) for my own website (which is not open to the Internet)

Mary Drysdale
Robert and Margaret Drysdale also had a daughter Mary Drysdale who was born after sister Elizabeth Drysdale. Mary died before Robert and Margaret came to the USA in 1871. Is there any record of her being buried in Dunfremline Abbey as well? Thanks for any info you may be able to provide me. Carrie M.

Elizabeth Moyes Drysdale
Elizabeth was born on July 28, 1862 in Iverkeithing, Fife, Scotland. She is my great Aunt. Her parents, Robert and Margaret Drysdale are my grandmother's parents. My grandmother is Barbara Elizabeth Drysdale Naylor. I assume that we are related. I have found a lot of info on this family that I can share with you and possibly obtain info from you that I haven't found. I was thrilled to find the resting place of Elizabeth. I would be so appreciative to have a picture of her headstone. I tried to put up a request for photo but it said that there was already one that existed for her. Carrie M.

RE: St. Brides Churchyard
Hello Peter - Thanks for your note. I have taken your suggestion, and posted my 2001 photo on the St Bride's Chapel page. I am also slowly adding a few more burials of people for whom I have record that they were buried there. James McKinlay is my gt-gt-gt-grandfather, for whom (for some reason) I have developed a particular regard (for him and for his wife Elleonora Cameron who lived long enough to have a death certificate indicating she too was buried at St. Bride's). If you are agreeable to transferring management of the James McKinlay memorial to me, I would be very appreciative. Though I have belonged to Findagrave for some months, I have only lately begun to participate actively.

Quinn Family

Thank you for transferring all of the Quinn family to me! What a surprise and so very kind of you. I am thrilled. My oldest son, 34, and his wife are expecting their first child in September, a little girl, and they are naming her Quinn and her middle name Larkin. This has really made my day - no my week!! Thanks so much! If we can EVER be of any help to you down under, please let us know! I hope you have as good a week as I have! Cheers!!

Thanks so much for the transfer of Merritt Quinn. I found some very old papers today - many of them 100+ years old! I was so excited as much of the family history was well recorded. I look forward to doing the updates and hope you will come back and check out the bio when I get it finished. I also found a couple hundred photos most don't have names, but it has been a very eventful day - the transfer icing on the cake :-) You may hear more from me later! Thanks again!
