Classification: Query
Surnames: Farquhar
My great-great-great-great-grandfather was Alexander Farquhar, born around the mid 1700s and married to Elspeth Reid. Among their children was John Farquhar (born 1788 Elgin, died 1868 Lossiemouth) and married in 1836 in Elgin to Christian Cumming (born 1814, died 1876 Lossiemouth). One of their children was Mary Farquhar (born 1836 Drainie, died 1912) married to Colin Stewart (born 1821 Lossiemouth, died 1883). Their son Robert Stewart (born 1868 Balormie, Drainie, died 1953 Monaughty, Alves) was married in Rothes in 1894 to Elspet Jane "Elsie" Jack (born 1874 Rothes, died 1960 Elgin). Their son Farquhar "Fach" Stewart (born 1906, Duffus, died 1987, Elgin) was my grandfather and in 1932 he married Jane Ann "Jean" Stewart (born 1908, Clochan, died 1977 Elgin).
Not sure if this is of any help but the names Colin, Robert, Elsie, Jean and Farquhar are still in our family.
You can get some great tips on links at the My Heritage website.
