Ann , daughter, age 16 general domestic, born Old Meldrum

Alexander J.L. son age 14, cattleman, born Old Meldrum

** they obviously made a mistake in

Jannie, daughter, age 6, scholar born Culsamond

So from this, even though Mary Ann shows her birthplace as King Edward, it is more likely it was New Deer as in earlier census. She lived in King Edward as a child so perhaps she always thought of that as her birthplace??

This was the only Mary Ann or Mary Mowatt I could find of right age and place.

I did not find any connection to the Kilgour family and cannot see where you found Kilgour in any of their children's names??

Maybe one of the wives was a Kilgour - Jane Middleton? or Mary Mowatt?
