    Alexander GRANT

    So many possibilities. As I said, he is one of my brick walls as it is quite difficult to locate any evidence of his existence. As an officer in the Militia, and being killed while on duty, you would think that there would be plenty of Records about this. Thank you everyone for all the...

    Alexander GRANT

    I have checked with "findagrave" which also has this info. After reading the transcription, I can safely discount this particular Alexander Grant as well. I was worth checking. Inscription reads "In memory of Alexander Grant, late farmer in the Carse of Delnies, who died 10th May 1834, aged 41...

    Alexander GRANT

    Thank you both for a very speedy reply. I would have to check the details from Scotland and/or see an image of the headstone, but it could very well be him. The time frame fits. He was killed while quelling a riot and was an Adjutant in the Militia at the time. However, trying to nail this...

    Inverness-shire Militia 1800

    Which organization holds the muster lists, troop movements for the Inverness-shire Militia 1800 - 1810 era. I have tried the War Office search and emailed Fort George asking if they have them, *sigh* with no response .

    Oh dear, another brick wall hit then. Thanks for this info Julie. I was hoping that this was the right Margaret, but the one I seek has the maiden name of Stewart. Sigh, back to the indexes. Thanks again Dave

    Margaret Femister - Moray

    I am trying to locate Margaret Femister (Fimister) and family, born 1799 Inverness-shire and would most likely be living in Morayshire for this census. Her daughter is also Margaret (b1820) and son is John (b 1835). In the 1851 census Margaret is listed as a Mason's wife, but her husband is...
