      Malcolm,  something just occurred to me.
                      You said that Jane Innes (George Simpson's wife) came from Macduff. Are you sure about that ?
                      On her death certificate her parents are given as William Innes & Margaret Sharp. They were actually married in the Aberdeenshire Parish of PREMNAY on November 5th.1795. William Innes being a blacksmith.However, I suppose they could have moved to Macduff by the time Jane was born (c.1799).

        Hello Again Malcolm,
                                         Jane Innes' Death Certificate (232 Entry 90) gives her parents as William Innes (Blacksmith) and Margaret Sharp. Going then to the IGI I looked for a match and got William Innes & Margaret Sharp marrying in the Parish of Premnay on November 5th.1795 and Margaret Sharp's birth in Premnay on November 5th.1776 (Her parents being James Sharp & Jean Milne who married on December 21st.1769 in Insch (Parish of Premnay)). Couldn't find anything for the birth of William Innes.
                                         As I said, Premnay is the Parish. It's just west of Inverurie. If you look for the town of INSCH, that's it.
         
                                        I agree, I think there is no doubt that George Simpson is buried in the Old Cemetery. If he did die away from Peterhead it must have been close enough to take him home for burial. So Greenland or the Davis Straits would be out.
                                       I havn't been to the Newburgh Churchyard recently. I got a little confused because there is a Cemetery in Newburgh (Holyrood) but since the wreck of the Oscar report talks about a "Churchyard" I would believe that to be FOVERAN Churchyard (Foveran is the Parish for Newburgh). It's a little way out of the village of Newburgh going south in the direction of Aberdeen. The Family HIstory Centre in Aberdeen has some of the FOVERAN burial records but I could not see the Innes one there. I think they only have partial records right now.
         
                                      Not sure about the William & James Simpson mentioned in Pigot's Directory. I guess it's a possibility.
