Re: [Peterhead] Margaret Stephen
- Hi Anne,
John was the son of Adam and Jane Cocker.
I have collected a huge amount of information about all Aberdeenshire Kinghorns over the years.
Please let me know if you have any gaps to be filled in.

Subject: Re: [Peterhead] Margaret Stephen
I have Kinghorns in my tree, married into my Aitkens, a bit later than
John Kinghorn b 1822 at Longside, married Margaret Aitken (b 1824 Peterhead)
They married in 1843, had 9 children (including an Adam) and both died
at Old Deer.
So far I have not researched this branch of the family.
