Bio and Links
Bio Photo My ancestors came from Brechin, Auchmithe and Arbroath as well as surrounding Angus and Aberdeenshire towns. My wife's parents were born in Kilmarnock and her entire lineage is Scottish. Several of my ancestors are buried in Arbroath Abbey, mainly my 2nd Great Grandfather and Grandmother, as well as my 3rd great grandparents and their infant children. I also have many ancestors buried in St. Vigeans including my 3rd, 6th and 7th Great Grandparents.

MacFarlane plot Oakshaw Trinity Church Yard
Given your alias and the amount of photos you have I am guessing the stones are either not there or not legible. I thought I would still take a chance and ask you if you have been to their plot and recall any stones, we would love pictures if possible.

Some of the ID's for the family are

James Shaw d. 1892 in Newmonthill Cemetery

There is a James Shaw d.1892 listed in FindAGrave Newmonthill Cemetery, Forfar, Angus. I do not know any other details, except that he was buried there on 21 July 1892 (which was 3 days after his death at Baldovan Asylum, Strathmartine). I somewhat doubt that there will be a headstone for him.

If you live in the area, would you take a photo of the headstone and post it? I live in the USA so it isn't possible for me to go there myself.

For your information: His full name was James George Shaw b. 27 May 1874 and died 18 July 1892. He was 18 years old at death.

Thank you for your assistance in advance. If you cannot find a gravestone or don't live nearby the cemetery, thanks anyway for considering my request.

Sincerely yours,

A Shaw

RE: Sara Campbell
Thank you Pixturmn that would be great.

It seems that whoever created the database may have made an entry for each person on the headstones in that cemetery, including spouses and parents who are not interred nor are they memorialized, simply their names are on the headstone as the loved spouse of... or the loved child of....

It would be wonderful to clean it all up, but I can already see it is a big job to sort out :-)

Find A Grave Correction: Callum Galbraith - FAG Meml# 115118805
Hi Pixturmn

Sorry, it is not possible to change A&S to 3rd Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders as this is a (fixed) pull-down menu.

It is however self evident from (the transcription of) the Inscription that Callum Galbraith was in the 3rd Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders when he died.

I believe Wm Parker Hornbarger may be my Great Grandfather. I saw your photo from the Hornbarger cemetery and I'm wondering if perhaps you might have some more information about him. Thanks
