Hi Anne
Don't know if you can help but have been searching for the birth and death of Alexander Fraser born c 1800, who was rumoured to be from Culloden area. We know he married Elizabeth Mitchell and had the following children: Alexander, Isabella, Margaret, Mary, Harriet HS, Robert, Elspet and Samuel.
We believe that one of the above daughters (Isabella) married into the Findley family and another (Margaret) married into the Rae family. Elizabeth Mitchell was the daughter of Alexander and Agnes Mitchell, leading back to the Craigmyle family and a daughter was known as the fair maid of Craigmyle. Mary Fraser, mentioned above, married George Diack and they were my gggrandparents. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Gail I'm sorry I can't help more with Christina. I think Roberts death certificate should help you further with his parents names. If you find anything else that may help please get in contact to see if I can help you again. All the best Anne

Hi Anne Thanks very much for looking for Christina Cruickshanks - none of these are her as far as I can see. She is proving very elusive! Cruickshanks was her own family name and Shirer was the name used as her married name on her son Robert's marriage certificate in 1871. She may have been younger than I thought (born between 1830 and 1837). Your help is very much appreciated, Gail

Hi Anne Thanks very much for finding Robert and Isabella for me and their two children at the time. As for Robert's mother I am not sure about her year of birth but I think it should have been around 1820-1830, if that is any help? She is realy proving a bit of a puzzle! Thanks Gail
