Re: Mary Bertram & Joseph Douglas, Berwickshire
I now have copies of John Moffat's inventory and testament. His wife had died by the writing in 1840, so I think there was a misreading of Mary's tombstone. She died in 1833, not 1853. John did live at Hoardwell, spelled Hoardweel in the will. In any case, Mary Bertram was indeed born later than 1750, and was ca 1764.
They had 9 children -- Margaret, John, Alison (my ancestor), Mary, Peter, James, Allan, Janet and William.
