Donald Robertson Ancestry Tour of Scotland

Donald Robertson. Born 1st of January, 1785, died 4th of June, 1848 Aged 63 years. He was a peaceable quiet man, and to all appearance a sincere Christian. His death was very much regretted, which was caused by the stupidity of Laurence Tulloch, of Clotherton, who sold him nitre instead of Epsom salts, by which he was killed in the space of three hours after taking a dose of it.

Ancestry Research for Tours of Scotland

Hello Sandy, My name is Kelli Durham Brizek. I live in Key Largo, Florida, United States. I have been researching my ancestry and have come to learn that 90% of my family is from Scotland. Some from Falkland, Fife. I stumbled upon your site and have thoroughly enjoyed reading what you have written about this ‘little’ part of the world. My husband and I are planning a trip to Scotland and I’m CERTAINLY going to visit Fife.

The point in my email, I will try to be quick as I’m sure you read many an email each day, is that I’m forever grateful for the time and effort you have put into this beautiful site in reference to Fife! If it weren’t for you, people like me (whose family came from Scotland to settle in the US) would know next to nothing about the REAL history and culture of the area. THANK YOU so very much for your time. You’ve done a remarkable job. Regards, Kelli.

Thank you for your very kind words, Sandy Stevenson.

All my small group tours of Scotland, include my native home area of Anstruther, Crail, Pittenweem and Falkland, in The Kingdom of Fife, Scotland.

Cholera in Dumfries Scotland

The first death from cholera in Dumfries occurred on the 15th of September. For the 1st of October the record showed fifty-six new cases and twenty-three deaths, while the next day it reached its culminating point, rising to fifty-five new cases and fifty-four deaths. Fatal cases continued to occur daily till the 30th October, which proved a blank day; and by the middle of November the disease had fairly disappeared. During its stay it desolated scores of homesteads, leaving many a sweet babe fatherless, and many a widow mourning, and sometimes sweeping whole families into eternity. As officially reported, 837 persons were attacked, of whom 421 died; but the number of coffins made, and the heavy sexton's bills, as based upon the burial-roll, went to show that the real deaths were greater in number and probably not fewer than 550. The sister burgh of Maxwelltown suffered about as much, population considered, the cases there having been 237, and the deaths 127. Beneath the turf, on which we now gaze, kept green even in winter by the rich soil below, at least 350 coffined bodies were laid, piled tier upon tier, with quicklime scattered between. The cavity was made eighteen feet deep, and extended as the demand for accommodation rapidly and fearfully increased, and the grave-diggers had to ply their implements in harmony, with the dismal Death chant; I gather them in; I gather them in!

William McDowall, 1815-88

Hi Sandy, I am trying to find where, in the 1700s, Drumochy was located. I found it on an old parish record I downloaded. I haven't been able to find it on a map. I am endeavouring to trace my ancestry and prove it. Thank you for any leads. Kind regards,
Josephine F WYATT QLD AU. PS Looking for 'Fulton' there.

Any help would be much appreciated, Sandy Stevenson.
