      Have you checked the consulr records for Stettin to see if there is a death certificate. The records should be at the Public Record Office, Kew if they survive. I think Stettin has a more modern name, can't recall it at the moment.

      For Malcolm Simpson
       
      Malcolm, I went back up to Peterhead this week and took a close look at the headstone. It actually says :
       
      George Simpson sometime master of the Traveller of Peterhead died at Stetten on September 11th.1848 in his 51st. year of his age and interred there.
       
      So, looks like he is buried at Stettin in the Baltic in spite of what the Peterhead burial records say. As you will probably know, the Baltic trade figured largely with Peterhead for many years so this is not really surprising.
      I wonder if the authorities in Stettin could locate a burial place or headstone commemorating this event ?
       
      Fascinating, isn't it ?              Kindest Regards.............Alex Ritchie
