1    I also have a note of Mary (1835), Henry (1837), Besse (1841) and Sarah(1843) with the reference 1851 census.

2    Sue Pietsch found a burial for Hannah Ridley 30 Dec 1861.  She believes this is the missing burial for John and Elizabeth Swindle Ridley's Hannah.  Death date on Limestone Brae monument gives death as 27 Dec 1861, age is incorrect on monument.  According to baptism it should be 13, burial record says 12.  Barbara and Thomas were buried at Ninebanks but Hannah is at Carrshield.
