Hi Christine,
(Best Copy & Paste into MS Notepad & Change font "Courier New Fixedsys" size = 9)
You might find this of interest. I can't format it
on this site. You could reconstruct it by levels. GEORGE RAFFAN's grave stone can be found in Buckie, Scotland. Most of
the research was done by Ethel Raffan & Eleanor Cullis Hill.
Eleanor visited Buckie in 1976 & met 2 old ladies, Dolly & Margaret
living at Bridge of Tynet, nr Buckie. They said GEORGE RAFFAN built &
maintained all the mills in the area. Rathven is the in which
Buckie is situated.

KEY:
[?] ......... No information
"=" ......... married
(n) ......... child eg (3) = third child
(up) = unknown progeny
"[1] =" ..... first marriage, [2] second etc...
<date>- ..... birth
-<date> ..... death
2.5 = level or depth down tree
eg 2.5 = George RAFFAN II
eg 2.5.2 George RAFFAN(III)
2.5.0 ....... "0" = children eg "Walter GEORGE III Jessie Lucy"
