Doug, I don't have a connection to John & Ann Michie that I know of.What I do have is Ann's death certificate that I ordered from Scots Origins in error.I hated to have it go to waste so will be glad to make a copy for you if you need it.
My Michie connection is also in Aberdeenshire. Agnes Harper Michie, bn 1882, parish of Newhills, daughter of William Michie & Marg. Dalgarno. Wm Michie was born in 1840, also in Newhills, son of William Michie(bn c 1810, Foveran)& Ann Sherriffs(bn 1812, Old Machar) William Michie bn. c 1810 was the son of Alexander Michie(of Foveran) & Isabella Burgess(of New Machar).
That's about the extent of my knowledge on my Michie ancestors. Any possible connection?
