Thanks for doing the grave pic-and for the edits which I have been pleased to accept! I just hate it when the official records don't show the forename!

GILL / CATTO graves at Newhills
Thanks for your message - I'll happily take them over if you want although they are not in my direct tree - I am looking at the CATTO name as a whole.

G Shewan
Shewan Family
Sir, I am a great-grandson of William J. Shewan (1867 - 1947), memorial # 77080941, who was born in Belhelvie, Aberdeenshire, emigrated to the United States in 1911, and is buried in Erie, Pennsylvania.

I have noticed in recent months that you have been documenting many of the graves of Shewans who are buried in Aberdeenshire. Most, if not all, of whom are most probably my distant relatives whose names I have from multiple sources.

Shewan is an uncommon surname that originated from Scotland. There are Shewans in the five great English speaking countries (UK, US, Australia, Canada and NZ), but we all can connect our family lines back to Scotland.

As a result of my genealogical study, I have become interested in Scotland, its history, people and culture. I hope to visit it someday.

I am writing to thank you for your work. It has helped me greatly in the understanding of my family and I am most grateful to you for the information you have provided.

Just wanted you to know.

Gerald E. Shewan
Montgomery Village, Maryland, USA

RE: Chisholm, Udny Kirkyard
Thanks Mike. Don't have a clue as to when I will get back to Aberdeen, was hoping to be there for New Years in Stonehaven for the celebration, but with my husbands bad back, don't think we will make it.

Thanks again for all you do.

RE: G. Duncan
Mike: Thanks for your reply. I don't think you understand what I am saying. With the information that you sent me about George Duncan and Isabella Annand for the memorial for G. Duncan. I am almost certain there is no one buried with that stone in Scotland. Everything you sent to me for them agrees with the George and Isabella that are buried in Franklin, Simpson County Kentucky USA. I have talked with the grand daughter of George and Isabella and she agrees with me. I just wondered why there was a tombstone placed in Scotland for George and who put it there. If there is still family there I can send them a lot of information from their family in American. If you look at memorial 149128535 for George Duncan and 91037598 for Isabella you can see the tombstones in Franklin, Kentucky that I am talking about with stones for their four children.

RE: G. Duncan
Mike: Thanks for all of the information it has been a big help to me. What I don't understand is why there is a tombstone there for G. Duncan. From the information on the tombstone he is the same one that I have buried in Franklin Kentucky USA. and if you go to findagrave and look for George Duncan in Green Lawn cemetery in Franklin his tombstone says he was born in Aberdeen and beside him is Isabella and her tombstone says she was born in Aberdeenshire. Also their four sons are also buried on this same plot with their parents so why is there a tombstone in Scotland? I had also heard from a friend in "Franklin that George was a stone mason and that agrees with what you said about him. Do you know where the parents of George are buried? Thanks again for your help.
