Alvera does not give mw a name for this child 
Ross, James Cormac (I6433)
172 An earlier George died before this boy was born and I believe that he was given the name which had become vacant
The 1881 Census shows George aged 21 living at home with his parents at Ryehill and his occupation is given as carter Since his father is listed as a quarrier most likely on Benachie George may also be employed there
Quarrying on Benachie came to an abrupt stop following a downpour which washed out the road

He married Mary Massie on the 9th of Feb 1884 in Culsalmond

1891 Census is very sketchy from Scotlandspeople Website shows George as farmer in Parish of Insch age unreadable but maybe 34 with wife Mary age 31and three children George age 5 Alexander Massie 2 and Mary age 1 They have 5 windows or rooms with windows and a farm servant Robert Alardyce age14 from Rayne
The Insch Census for 1901 gives us George Florence farmer at Midtown He is age 41 as is his wife Mary The children listed are as follows Alexander M age 12 born Old Macher Mary age 11 born Insch John age9 born Insch Maggie E age 6 also Insch Thomas age 4 born Insch and Bella S age 2 born Insch There are 6 rooms with one or more windows

176 Ann gets £300 in will of George Adlington d 1868 age 89 Sheppard, Mary Ann (I5899)
177 Ann Jaffrey married Alexander Coutts and they are believed to have had a family of 5 including 2 sons and 3 daughters
Ann is reported to have died in Edinburgh, date unknown Subsequently a grave stone in Oyne cemetery gives us her death in Leith 3rd Nov 1911
A check on the birth of her daughter Anne shows that she was illegitimate and born shortly before the parents married The wedding took place in Oyne in 1869 (GRO 230/00 0001Oyne)
My mother had a friend in Selkirk (meaning a relative) and we visited her there once. I think she was Elsie Coutts one of the family previously mentioned
Also Elizabeth Coutts daughter of James Coutts (Fyvie) died in Old Meldrum and my mother kept a cutting of her death notice,so perhaps all same Coutts family,
It is not known which member of the family erected the stone to the parents at Oyne 
Jaffray, Ann (I95)
178 Ann Sim is listed on the IGI as christened 30 May 1803 in Banff Her parents are James Sim and Elspet Mitchell Their marriage also in Banff is dated 26 May 1799

She married John McIntosh 30 May 1824 Again details are from the IGI

Listed in Census 1841as Ann McIntosh age 38 This agrees with birth estimation The 1851 census lists her incorrectly as Jane now age 48

By 1871 she was in Aberdeen acting as house keeper to her widowed brother John, but by 1881she was back in Rayne on her own working as a dressmaker.

Adlingtons Prices and Marriotts were all Wesleyian Methodists some more committed than others

Robert Jonathan became the putative head of the family after the death of his brother in law and he heavily influenced all the children of the next generation My correspomdent says he was something of a bully and a bigot

192 Arthur served with an ambulance brigade during WW1 and a letter from him to his Aunt Annie describes the action from somewhere in France It is dated 1915 He hopes the present battle will lead to an early end to the war This letter has been found amongst a collection of letters that came to light when Elizabeth Daniel cleared out the attic prior to moving house Her mother Mary Marshal saved them along with other family items as had her mother in turn There are several letters from 1901

193 As "Uncle Jack" he was held to be a bad influence on young William Goddard by sister in law Catherine Vardy He was probably no more than the usual rough and ready workman
Baptism note John Goddard was over 8 years old when baptised. His father had married a second wife Mary, his first wife (Sarah Bartlett Hall) having died at a comparatively young age
The 1881 census shows John living at Sampsons yard Hucknall under Huthwaite Notts He is Head occupation Bricklayer age 28 born Rugby His wife Sarah Ann is age 23 born Hucknall and daughter Sarah Jane is age 4

Goddard, John (I2910)
194 As a boy Alexander (Sandy) delivered milk to the houses in the village of Oyne from the family farm of Harthill
When he left school he worked at home for his father. It was said that amongst the sons who were in turn employed at home he was the only one who could manage the difficult father
Following service with the Gordon Highlanders in the 1st World War he took advantage of a training scheme on leaving to qualify as a joiner and carpenter
He worked for the building firm of Bissets (spelling?) in Aberdeen lodging with his sister Annie and family in Northern Road
An accident at work forced him into early retirement I believe a fall from a roof was the cause He obtained some form of compension and moved to Insch living with his mother and sister Kate at 36 High Street
He moved to Baldyquash some six months before his brother Henry Gray died, to be of help to my mother Isabella and grannie Alexander and somehow forgot to go back again
After some years there the farmer Mr Leslie gave them orders to quit as the cottage was required for a worker he said
They found a suitable property in Oyne a house called Daisybank where once upon a time Sandy as a boy had delivered milk They bought it between them in a most successful and harmonious arrangement
As a holiday destination for the family it was a great success and in no small measure this was due to Uncle Sandy
