Anyone have, or know of a website for, the MI's for Old Deer Cemetery, (Banffshire) Aberdeen?
No, ANESFHS doesn't have it, although, they do have a listing booklet for New Deer which is reasonably priced and very informative.
I'm stuck on ROSS, Andrew b. May 1782 d. ?, STEPHEN, Ann b. circa 1788 (his wife) their children James b. 1817, Alexander b. 1819, John b. 1821, George b. 1830, Jane b. 1834 - may be other children - but specifically their grandsons (children of ROSS, Andrew and SMITH, Ann Murray) ROSS, George b. 1849 d 1849 and ROSS, John b. Aug 1853 d. Sep 1854.
Any leads would be really appreciated.

SAINT FERGUS, BANFFSHIRE, SCOTLAND is the cemetery in question NOT Old Deer, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Sorry!

This is perfect. Thank you, so much. This is the absolute correct family. May I ask one more question? Did you come across anything about an infant who would be a grandson to Andrew Ross and Ann Stephen. He was John Ross born Aug 10, 1853 and died in 1854? Once again, THANK YOU.

Hi,

Although I didn't find a gravestone, I did find a mention in the OPR deaths for St Fergus.

St Fergus
John Ross age 13 months buried 27 September 1854
son of Andrew Ross
Abode- Old Deer

There was also

St Fergus
George Ross age 1 buried 18 August 1849
son of Andrew Ross
Abode- Old Deer

In the 1851 census for Old Deer there is this family.

Square, Village of Fetterangus

Andrew Ross head age 29 Agricultural Labourer b. St Fergus
Ann Ross wife age 28 born New Deer
Ann Ross daughter age 4 born Old Deer
Andrew Ross son age 7 months born Old Deer

Hope this helps,
Robert.

Thank you, so much. This answers a major question of when the Ross family left Scotland and therefore we can make a connection to another branch of the family previously thought impossible. This is a tremendous piece of information.
You are a very kind and generous person. Again, thank you so much.
