I am trying to trace my family tree and came across the surname of Farquhar, Aberdeenshire,Scotland. My search started with the cowies and lead to this name, so I will add my piece below, with th Farquhar reference near the end (this is all in scotland)
My great grandma was named Annie Cowie, who came from Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, she was born in 1874 and was the daughter to Alexander Cowie and Jane Morrison.
Annie Cowie married David Jack, who then moved back to Avoch in the black Isles and gave birth to Donald Jack in 1920.
I have added the below, tracing back through Annie's family;
Alexander Cowie was the son of William Cowie and Janet Farquhar.
William Cowie was born in 1812.
Janet Farquhar's father was James Farquhar, James was born in 1788.
Jane Morrison was the daughter of James Morrison and Isasbella Smith
I would love to hear from anyone who has any links to my family.
