In Reply to: Smeatons in Scotland by Ron Stewart of 83

Hi Ron,

My ggg grandmother was Dinah Smeaton. She married john Tainsh on January 12, 1824 in Muthill, Perth, Scotland. Her birth date and place remain a mystery though I know from later census records that is was about 1801. She died in 1878 in Logie, Perth, Scotland. I should receive details from her death certificate in about 2 or 3 days. I will pass this information on to you. Coincidentally(?), I have not been able to find a record of the birth of her daughter, Mary Tainsh, even though birth records exist for her two known brothers. I will also receive the details from her death certificate this week. I wonder if Dinah and Mary were born outside of Scotland or if it just turns out that neither were baptised. Dinah's father was James Smeaton (details unknown).

Who were your Scottish Smeatons and where were they from?
