      Hi Ross,

      My Gr Gr Grandfather was Alexander Johnstone Kinghorn c 18/5/1844 Peterhead.
      His sister was your ancestor Janet Sim Kinghorn c 26/1/1842 , who married James Duncan in 1867.
      So far I have no idea where the middle names of Sim and Johnstone came from as their father Alexander Kinghorn b Dec 1812, Old Deer, was the illegitimate son of Margaret Stephen. I have no idea who she married and who brought him up. I have the Kirk session record where she names Adam Kinghorn as his father. He fathered 3 children before he married Jane Cocker. They beautifully described this as a "trilapse of fornication"
      Alexander Johnstone Kinghorn first appears in the 1841 census in Peterhead married to Christian Middleton.
      Alexander was a widow by 1851, and married Margaret Ledingham 28/11/1852 in Peterhead.
      Does anyone out there recognise any of these names?

      Subject: [Peterhead] George Duncan

      Iam looking for information regarding George Duncan who was born in Peterhead in 25/09/1874.

      George Duncan had 9 siblings one of which was Alexander Duncan who was my great grandfather and out of all the entire family, Alexander Duncan was the only one to have married and to have had a family (or so I am lead to believe).

      But there a number of questions still remain one of which is about George Duncan. Till now I have know evidence or proof what happened to him and if he had married or indeed had a family or not. Till now I am lead to believe that I may be the only male decendent left. The other thing point of interest is the connection between the Family name of Duncan and Kinghorn
