Re: Moulin cemetery lairs

Thank you Isabel. I visited last week and found the lair, without much difficulty. Also visited the wonderful heritage centre, which in turn (via a volunteer) found me a living relation of the family! It was the Kennedy lair, but my 2nd G grandfather McNaughton is buried with them.

Family middle names

Looking through my McNaughton family from around 1800 onwards, the children's names seem to be adopting unusual middle names, that suggest they could be the name of the father's employer, or landlord, or Laird. I've certainly seen this in the more recent generations where the name 'Barbour', 'Graham...

Moulin cemetery lairs

Just had confirmation from Perth council that my ancestors are laid to rest in Moulin cemetery. They have given me a lair number. I've looked at the Memorial Inscriptions booklet too. Can anybody confirm if the plot numbers in these booklets reconcile with the lair numbers or are we talking about co...

Re: The Kennels, St Martins, Perthshire

Thank you Alan. That's a great help. My ancestors were gamekeepers, so the dog connections match. I did think it might have an animal link to it. Thanks

Innerleithen : Pearce / Bruce / McNaughton

I would dearly love to know if there are any of the Pearce or Bruce descendants still around. Frank Pearce (1872-1953) married Mary Ann McNaughton (1868-1946), both of whom died at Innerleithen (54 Horsbrugh St, Innerleithen (EH44 6LF) Some of their children appeared to have stayed in the area too, ...

Blairgowrie McNaughton / Brown / Doig

I thought I’d throw a few names your way, to see if you can add or suggest further connections. Ideally, I’m looking for pictures of the family, but I’m planning a visit too over the next few weeks, so I’d love to be able to find my extended family. Violet Proudfoot Doig (née McNaughton) (1914-1993)...

Robert MacNaughton (1892-1971) Cuil-an-Daraich Pitlochry

I don't suppose anybody knew Robert MacNaughton (1892-1971)
He was a bachelor who died at Cuil-an-Daraich, Logierait, Pitlochry in 1971, aged 78.
He used to be a gamekeeper and then was a general labourer.
He was my great grandfather's half brother.
Thanks
