Re: Elizabeth McCombie in Nether Ruthven, Logie-Coldstone
I know this is a long shot, but your e mail and reply caught my attention with the Nether Ruthven, Logie Coldstone, and illegitimate.
My Great Great Grandmother was illegitimate and raised as Margaret McConnach.She would have been born around 1825 according to all the Census in Rhynie.
Her Marriage is listed in Rhynie and Logie Coldstone.
The Logie Coldstone is as follows
William Allardice in the parish of Rhynie and Margaret McConnach in Nether Ruthven having contracted in order for marriage consigned pledges and having regularly proclaimed were married 1st Nov 1846.I searched the 1841/1851 census for Logie Coldstone and no McConnach/McConnoch at Nether Ruthven and none were found.Was your family still in Nether Ruthven at this time?
