  • Notes 
    • !851 Census Deskford Banffshire gives Ann Gray as head of household She is a widow age 52 and midwife She has two daughters Jane Smith age 30 married, farm labourers wife, and Elspet Smith age 28 unmarried, midwife, employed at home, both girls born Fordyce
      Also listed is grandson Gordon Cameron age 7 months a plasterers son born Deskford and another grandson Innes Smith also 7 months farm labourers son born Deskford
      Last on the list is John Smith son in law age 33 farm labourer born Rathven I surmise that he is husband of Jane both with surname of Smith and also father of infant Innes
      Death certificate for Ann in 1857 gives her name as Ann Smith, Midwife and Widow She is age 59 and the informant is her son in law John Smith However we have her father given as James Gray, Agricultural Labourer deceased, not as I have it Alexander Gray although her mother is stated to be May Gray maiden name Mitchell This discrepancy regarding the father also occurs with her sister Janet's death and I am unable to explain it
