Benzie, Moir, Reaper & Kemper Family Page

About Our Family Research


Just recently started researching family background. I had little knowledge of my fathers family. Finally began to find out some details about his father and mother. James Moir (died 2/20/1895 age 85) and Jane Benzie(died 1/23/1885 age 73) were my great-grandparents from Aberdeen Scotland. They had four children Jane (b. 1838, d.1858), Robert (b.1844-d.1891), Isabella (b. 1849, d.1929 age 73) and Rachel (1852-1859 age 7).
Isabella married my grand-father John Reaper in June 16, 1888. They had two sons, John born February 13, 1889, and Isaac Benzie born July 23, 1892, in the Parish Chapel of Garioch, county of Aberdeen, Scotland. Isabella had daughter named Isabella (Bella) Harper b.1878. Her father was William Harper from Bridgefoot New Macher.
My father then came to the United State in February of 1925 and settled in Idaho. He did not keep in touch with any of his family. Hoping if anyone has any connection they will contact me.
Regards,
Shirley
