  • Notes 
    • Alexander was born on the 7th of Feb1838 at Chapel of Garioch a little ahead of the game His parents married in June 1840 in good time for their next child John
      From the 1851 census we learn that at age 13 he was employed by his father on the farm at Hatton
      Alexander died accidentally at age 18 One version is that he was kicked by a horse There is another family story that says the accident involved a cart wheel which fell on him
      An inscription on the family headstone at Logie Durno says he died 13 Oct 1856 age 18
      I have now located the entry in the parish register The death was registered at Oyne
      Alexander Jaffray single farm servant Oct 13th at 1pm place Hatton of Ardoyne The cause of death column leaves insufficient space for the entry and is thus difficult to decipher and my best attempt is as follows "Severe injury of chest and heart from an accident caused by a cart wheel" Four more words follow then as certified by -------- Mitchell M D who saw the ----- 13th Oct 1856 on the day he died Informant is his father Leslie Jaffray Registrar is John Shand
