Your information may indeed be of great help to me. I am now checking the Markinch Burials 1799-1854 and hope to compare this with the Markinch area christening and birth records to see how they match up and to see who would most likely be the parents of my gggrandfather, Andrew.The Markinch Burials document shows deaths of Bruntons of Star, Kennoway as well as of Markinch. Since parents often named a child with the same name as a dead child born earlier, there are often multiple children in the same family with the same first name. This complicates things for sure in research. All the info I now have on my gggrandfather, I gave to you in the message. I will try to get more info on William Brunton/Isobel Scot; and Andrew Brunton/Jean Galloway thru sites on the internet. Thanks for answering. Was your maiden name Brunton?
