Rob: Thanks for your effort and I hope to receive the info from your friend, George.
I can only get back to c1732.One problem is I don't know when/where my John Maxton was born. I am assuming he was at least as old as his wife who was b.c1732 according to her death record in Perth. A son of my John Maxton lived several Perthshire villages: Aberdalgie, Dunning, Strathearn. --John Maxton's wife, Janet Murdoch, may have been daughter of John Murdoch of Fortevoit. There was a Janet chr. 1734 Fortevoit dau. of John Murdoch.
Are you of the MAXTONE family near Fowlis Wester and only a few miles of Crieff?I have been to the hotel/restaurant. A beautiful countryside.
