Surnames: LEITH, CROMARTY
Lisa, I noticed your comment about the lack of responses to your offer. I am researching the LEITH and CROMARTY surnames in So. Ronaldsay, and have hit that proverbial stone wall , and can't get past 1799 . There weren't many LEITH in So. Ronaldsay cira 1800, so any death would be relevant. And just on the off chance that we may be researching the same surnames, I have included the family of Nicol LEITH and Margaret CROMARTY.
