red mail Forrest, Murker, Duguid
According to parish records, George Duguid had a son, Patrick, who was christened at Tarves on 16 Dec 1736. Although not proven to be the same person, a Patrick Duguid had a daughter, Margaret Duguid, who was christened on 24 Mar 1771, at Old Meldrum. I believe she may have been the same Margaret Duguid who married Peter Murker on 27 Jun 1792, at Tarves. Their daughter, Margaret Murker (b.6 Jun 1793) m. Thomas Forrest (b.5 Jan 1790) at Belhelvie on 29 Nov 1817. Both were born at Tarves, as were their six children: Thomas (b.19 Sep 1818), Elspet (b.20 Jul 1821), Barbara (b.3 May 1823), Margaret (b.2 Sep 1825), Patrick (b. 9 Jan 1829), and Hellen (b. 28 Jun 1833). Thomas Forrest's daughter Margaret was my paternal g-grandmother. Her full name was Margaret Duguid Forrest. In 1835, when penning the births of his children in the family Bible, Thomas Sr. noted the family residence as "Lochtowne of Kithfield" (sic) which, I presume, was a neighborhood within Keithfield, Tarves. The 1841 Census enumerates him as an agricultural laborer. I would welcome contact from my cousins who share this ancestry.
