      Hi Jan,
       
      The following information may be of assistance to you:
       
      1890 Deaths in the District of Peterhead in the County of Aberdeen

      No. 110; Margaret Buchan (widow of Arthur Buchan, Fisherman), died 1890, April Twentieth at 12h 30m am at Buchanhaven, Peterhead, female, age 82 years..  Parents:  James Reid, Fisherman (deceased) & Margaret Reid ms Williamson (deceased).  Cause:  Senile Decay - No Med Atten.  Informant:  Arthur Buchan, son (present).  Registered 1890, April 21 at Peterhead by Alex. Robertson, Registrar.
       

      Constitution Street Cemetery, Peterhead, Aberdeenshire

      Erected by Margaret Reid in memory of her beloved husband Arthur Buchan, Fisherman at Buchanhaven, who died 6th June 1875, aged 67.  Also their son Peter who died 5th Octr. 1853 aged 19.  Also their daughter Barbara who died 26th Octr. 1840, aged 3.  William who died 9th Feby. 1849 aged 6 months.  Also their son James, who died 5th March 1901, aged 65 years.  Also Catherine, daughter of the above James Buchan, who died 28th May 1905, aged 25 years.
      (Words at Bottom read:)  "A few short years of evil past, we reach the happy shore.  Where death divided, friends at last, shall weep to part no more."
       
      The couple had at least nine children - Peter (bc 1834); James (bc 1836); Barbara (bc 1837); Elspet (bc 1841); Jane (bc 1843); Margaret (bc 1843); Arthur (b 1846); William Reid (b 1848); and Andrew (b 1850).

      I am not directly related to the family, however I did some research on the family for a friend of mine who is related through James Reid & Margaret Williamson's daughter Mary Reid who married Andrew Strachan (son of Andrew Strachan & Margaret Bruce) 7 November 1833, Peterhead.  I have a photograph of the above headstone which I can e-mail you if you would like a copy..  If you think I may be able to assist with any more info on the family that you would like please do not hesitate to ask.
       
      Alison
