I am still doing some research and my sister and I are curious to know if James Kinghorn who married Isabell Waddell/Wadie had any siblings. Our 7xgreat-grandfather was maried about the same time they were only a few miles apart. I don't know if you know but Ormiston the village, where there is still a Kinghorn House (now a newsagent shop as well as a home), was created by an entrapreneur by the name of Cockburn. He was encouraging people to go and build their own homes in this lovely setting and start a new community. Our side of the family seem to stem from there although we did move through inveresk, Haddington and Leith. there is a gravestone in Ormiston graveyard through which I have been able to find some information. Also my fathers direct line have a beautiful marble obelisk in South Leith church Graveyard. So far the weather has been too wet for me to pursue North Leith Graveyard. I ahve a lot of names in right places but have, because so many have the same name, difficulty in finding the right conections. I am having fun trying to work them out.
I saw your web page and was interested to see that the Kinghorns have very distinctive eyes and noses. If you would like I could e-mail some photos direct so that you can se what I mean.
