Hi Ann, Sorry for being so long...Ive been out this afternoon with lovely grandson. Thankyou very very much for all your hard work looking this up for me,unfortunately he is not the one on the 1881 Census,David Eadie born 1833 in Pittenweem would have been only 48 years old so it can't be him. Can I be very cheeky and ask if you have the David Eadie born in Dunblane 1831 on your 1881 census.if he is there I can at least eliminate him as my gg grandfather Thanks again. Hetty
