      Hi
      My gg mother was Jane Robertson 1849-1908. Her parents I believe
      were James Robertson, ships carpenter & Ann Smith, married Peterhead
      3 May 1840. Jane (Jeannie) married John Lawrence May (Jockey borra)
      1846-1923, in Inverallochy 1867. They had 14 children, my
      grandfather, John, was their 3rd son, born June 3rd 1882.d 1952, he
      married Jane Ritchie (1885-1971) of Rosehearty. If these names sound
      familiar to anyone, would love to hear from you. Regards Maureen
      from New Zealand.

        (Machattie)
        Their children: Margaret 1799, Jean 1801(m: June22,1826- James Mitchell),
        Janet 1803 (m:Feb.13,1836- Thomas Mitchell),James 1806 and William 1812
        I seem to have come to a dead end on this family.
