      Hello Susan.. I can account for at least one of your George Simpsons

      John Simpson b. 10 Apr 1763 (Crossfield) Midmar to William Simpson and Helen
      Bannerman
         + Jane Fyfe b. c1766 Dysart, Fife
                Elspet Simpson b. 20 Jul 1793 Midmar
                John b. 16 Jul 1794 Midmar
                George b. 26 Jan 1797 Midmar

      A George Simpson b. c1794 Midmar appears in the 1851 Census as a "Carter" at 33
      Causeway End, Aberdeen married to Janet b. c1799 Forres, Morayshire and Son
      William b. c1842 in Aberdeen.  This is the only George Simpson from Midmar that
      I could find so with a leap of faith, one can assume it is the one listed
      above.  At least your field of Geo Simpsons is now lessened.  Regards   db

      Hi Susan,
      You have certainly been busy with George Simpsons'.As I said in a previous
      message-- Simpson was a very common name in the North East of Scotland.His
      Mother was definitely Margaret Buchan and we believe he had a brother Andrew
      Simpson.
      I see a John Ogston and a A.Ogston were Whaling shipmasters in the Peterhead
      fleets.Were they part of your family tree?
      Happy trawling.Malcolm.

          Hi Malcolm,

          I love a good challenge and finding out about George is defintely one! Hahaha

          Regarding the Ogston line - those men are not directly related to me. My great grandfather, William Ogston, was born in Old Deer and moved to Peterhead. He was a newspaper reporter.

          When I went to Scotland back in 1998 and traipsed through the graveyards, I also went into the Peterhead Librabry searching for his byline in the newspaper. Unfortunately they did not have bylines back then. I was able to get a copy of my grandmothers birth notice though - that was nice!

          One very interesting thing I had found in the local paper on microfilm was that a local newspaper reporter was down in London and was put in jail overnight. He was out past curfew. Unfortunately they had not printed the reporters name. I dint think much of it at the time - but then it dawned on me. The reporter went down to London most likely to see if he could solve the BIG MYSTERY at that time. "Jack the Ripper" I sure wish I could find out if that reporter was my great granddad.

          Cheers
          Susan

                was buried at Stettin.
