      It looks like your George Davidson b.1797 married to Margaret Smart, parents are Alexander Davidson and Margaret Cormack, with brother William Davidson b.1788 and sister Barbara Baird ms Davidson b1792.


      I also have photos of the headstone for Lair E154, which I’ll scan send separately.
