- Hi Alex
It doesn't look like our Isabels are one and the same. I did find
Hercules Don and Isabel Duthie Don living at #10 Stone of Benholm in
the second district of Benholm in the 1851 census. No matter how
many times I subtract, it still comes out that she was born in 1817
and in Marykirk.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if there isn't some connection though.
My Hercules was a farm servant, but I don't know where (yet!) and
their children were born in St. Cyrus, Garvock and Benholm. If you
find anything please let me know. I will keep my fingers crossed
that Lorraine Blake might be able to give you a clue.
