Regret I cannot remove the cemetery photo from John Cushny. However, you should be able to do this as you created it. I've removed the cem photo from Cath Cushny (nee Brown).

Was just getting to the first wife and found Janet Simpson on the 1851 Census. Thanks for her name and the death certificate info, that is very good to have. That William jr. reported it may also help narrow down when he emigrated to the US.
If you are interested in the American Mitchells just let me know - I don't mind sharing.

Thanks for all your information about the family of William Mitchell and Jane Sheirs. I have been helping a Mitchell friend with her ancestry. She is descended from their son William and his 2nd wife Rebecca E Rogan, whom he married after his first wife Georgianna died. They had 2 sons: John & Robert.
I pieced together that this William married to Georgianna and Rebecca is the same person starting with the 1900 Census and the 1905 NY Census:
Both have William Mitchell, born 1861-63 in Scotland, profession advertisement/news papers, living at 280 then 438 46th St, Brooklyn, NY with wife Rebecca who in 1900 has been married 0 years and has 0 children (probably an error: son John was born 1897 and Georgianna died 1894). William's children are listed as George, Jane, William, Frances, and John.
Living at 438 46th St, Brooklyn on the 1910 Census is Rebecca Mitchell, a widow, with her 2 living children John and Robert.
Still at 438 46th St, Brooklyn on the 1920 Census, Rebecca Mitchell is living with her son Robert and step son William (a newspaper printer, b 1889 NY).
From here I started looking for a William Mitchell who died in Brooklyn btw 1905 and 1910 and found https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2WF5-WTP
Died 26 May 1907 in Brooklyn: William Mitchell b 1862 Scotland, printer, married; parents William & Jane Shern; buried 29 May at Greenwood Cem.
I also found on familysearch.org the birth record for his son William (b 11 Aug 1888 Brooklyn) which gives the parents as William Mitchell (born 1862 Scotland) and Georgiana Wright Mitchell (born 1865 Scotland).
If you or anyone has any questions about the family of William Mitchell and Rebecca Rogan feel free to message me.
I'd like to thank Andrew for providing me with some fantastic pictures of ancestors headstones in Cairnie. He was unbelievably fast in responding to my requests through Find a Grave. The photos were also of great quality. Thank you again Andrew, your contribution is truly appreciated and I hope I can somehow return the favour! Sincerely Alister MacLean

Thank you so much for linking the Mitchell info to my great grandfather William Mitchell in New York.
I don't know if and when I would have traced my great great grandparents.
My family and I appreciate your work and I have connected with relatives in Australia.

Yes, mine came from Scotland in 1740 to the Carolinas. I have not had much luck in Scotland. I did find out they were at Cluny Castle and it is still there.
