Alexander Murray and Annie Wallace

Alexander Murray


Born in the Gamrie and McDuff district of Banff on 1 Jan 1843

Worked as a carpenter later in life. Had been in farming/crofting earlier.

When Annie Wallace died on 16 Nov 1878, he married Ann Duff in the Old Machar district of Aberdeen in 1881.

Annie Wallace

Precise Birth date uncertain, but it appears likely that she was born on 27 May 1834 in the Kilcalmonel/Kilberry district of Argyll.

She died during the birth of her child Wallace, who died three months later. She is buried in a grave at Achness Cemetery (NC 468028). The grave is marked as Ann Wallace, but her death is recorded as Annie Wallace. The use of this name Annie leads to a neatly-fitting birth record referred to above.
