Re: [Peterhead] Milnes & Davidsons
- Dear Alex, and anyone else who might be able to help,
I read your discourse on Lairs and their registers. I'm not having much
luck finding deaths for a few of the above members, so I'm wondering if Lair
registers are a better way to go. Are they alphabetical or do you have to
know the date of death? The ones I'm looking for are the deaths of:-
Alexander Milne, b. around 1802 Peterhead (St. Fergus)
Grace (Grizzel) Milne (his wife (nee Davidson) born around 1805.
James Milne, b. 1839 (their son)
Elizabeth Milne (his wife)b. 1837
