Fearnan Cemetery

Fearnan Cemetery

 

The FVA has received an email from Roy McGregor, who has asked for some information about his forefathers who are buried in Fearnan Cemetery.

Roy McGregor writes:

“I came across the Fearnan Village Association whilst trying to find information on Fearnan Cemetery and wondered if anyone in your Association would be able to help. I believe that there is a monument in the cemetery, which reads:

“Donald McGregor died Stronfernan 02.03 1836 aged 85, son Duncan died 01.02 1824 aged 22, erected by son Alexander Esq. St Kitts, West Indies”.

 Alexander was my great, great grandfather and if there is any information on the family, I’d be very grateful to hear it. I believe that Alexander became a farmer in Crianlarich upon his return from the West Indies with his two children, Donald and Margaret, but do not have any information as to when he died or where he is buried.

 If anyone would be so kind as to help with these requests I should be extremely grateful.

If you can help, or suggest where Roy can find out more information, please could you either let Fiona or Sue know or, better still, use the Comment link below this article, as Roy will be able to pick up your information straight off the web site.  We are arranging for a photo of the monument to be taken.

About Fearnan Village Association

Fearnan Village Association was formed in 2007 to provide a means through which those who live in the village can come together to discuss and respond to issues of importance to the village, particularly those that will have an impact on our quality of life. We also organise social events, such as the very popular Pudding Night in February, Strawberry TeaZ in July, and other events and coffee mornings throughout the year.
