red mail Descendants of Isabella Benzie
I'm seeking descendants of Isabella Benzie (Apr 1862 - Nov 1922). She had at least 7 children, of whom at 6 survived to adulthood. I'm particularly interested in Andrew Benzie who appears to have died in WWI and James Benzie, who at some point was a baker in Laurencekirk. Isabella married twice and Andrew appears to have been listed on the Portsoy war memorial under his step-father's surname - McKerrow.

Seaking information on Annie Watson born Ann Ingram to Alexander Ingram and Elspet Gerrie in 1851 at Fordyce. She married Roderick McKenzie Watson on 12th January 1877 and they lived in Portsoy.I have them at Durn Road on the 1881 census with children Margaret 4, Jessie 11months and Roderick McK 2. Roderick Watson,husband, died 1st June 1927 at 6 Church Street Portsoy and the death certificate mentions his son Roderick McKenzie Watson as present. He would have been about 46. Would like to know about Annie as she was my great grandmother.

Clark family
John Clark known as Jock, my grandfather, was born in Ordiquhill 1900. His parents were William Clark and Mary ann Norrie. John was brought up in Aberchirder and had a sister Cissie (I think her married name was Stuart and they lived in Aberchirder.) He settled in Glasgow marrying Mary McClaverty from Belfast. He was a train driver. My father also John b. 1928 remembered visiting relatives in Portsoy and also relatives on a farm for holidays in the 1930's. Any connections?
