All comment/feedback/help requests within the Gravestone Photographic Resource for the name SCOTTExcellent site
This site is now on my Favourites list. Although I did not find any that fit in with what I have regarding the Scott family, I will keep looking every now and again as I am not finished yet. I wish you all the luck and thanks again for your efforts with this project
Thank you so much Charles for the image of Mungo's grave.I knew that Mungo had died in 1918, but couldnae find a death certificate, either at Register House or through the Commonwealth War Graves (CWGC)website, so the description on the gravestone explains my lack of gaining any information on his death. I have found that his death was registered in Plymouth & I have now requested the death certificate from the English Archives. Thank you so very much.I did know about Thomas, who was lost in WW1, as I found out that he is buried at Courtrai, through the CWGC.Certainly it looks like the gravestones at Kirkliston may contain additional information on my Scott/Chapman relations and I know that others are buried there. Whilst I realise that you are running the project from your own resources, I will not request too many images, but I have found this source of information to be invaluable and sincerely thank you.It is pleasing to note that Mungo has a fitting memorial.
Delighted to hear that you're having success with some of your family members. I photographed the Kirkliston graveyard and it's nice to hear that people who are researching their family are finding them through this. Also glad to hear you managed to obtain a death certificate as well. Hope you continue to have lots of luck with researching your family tree.Best wishesMichelle Roberts, S. Queensferry
Scotts from Stonehouse, Lanarkshire, Scotland - Thank you!
My name is Alexander Andrew Ronaldson Scott and I'm a direct descendant of Thomas Scott and his wife Janet Johnstone/Scott from Stonehouse, Lanarkshire, Scotland and other Scott kin of the Glasgow / Lanarkshire and Blantrye area. Thomas lived most of his life in Stonehouse, a village of mostly hand loom weavers of the period around 1800. Thomas is mentioned in Robert Naismith’s book: Stonehouse: Historical and Traditional 1885. Thomas Scott and Janet Johnstone are buried in the old kirkyard in Stonehouse and I shall soon make a pilgrimage there to rededicate the family headstone. I have been researching very passionately since 2001; working to publish a book using over 200 historical documents to back up what used to be only, with little exception, family tradition. A quick rundown on my Scott side looks like this: 1. Thomas Scott, carpenter of Bellshill (born approximately 1745) 2. Thomas Scott (Thomas of Bellshill’s son) married Janet Johnstone (they had 8 children)Thomas Jr, Marion Scott/Shearer, William Scott, John Scott, Janet Scott, Margaret Scott/Naismith, Janet Elliot Scott and Andrew Scott. 3. Andrew Scott (married twice) First Marriage to Elizabeth Osborne/Scott in 1848. (they had 4 children. Thomas Scott, Agnes Scott/Brown, Mary Scott/McDonald, Janet Scott who died age 3. Andrew’s 2nd marriage was to Helen Ronaldson/Scott in 1862. (they had 2 children. Alexander Scott, and Janet Polson Scott who, too, died young at age 7). 4. Alexander Scott (Andrew’s son) married Mary McChesney/Scott in 1892. (they had 3 children and the entire family moved from Scotland to Canada and then into Michigan of the USA. The children were Andrew Scott, Alexander Scott jr, Helen “Nellie” Scott). 5. Andrew Scott (son of Alexander) married Alice Cock/Scott in 1923. Andrew is my paternal great grandfather. I hope this information is helpful for anyone looking for Scotts of Lanarkshire Scotland and is an aid to beginners for simple research tips in general. Google is amazing with patience and a little luck. I would like to note that my research would not have been possible without the care and preservation by past/present family members and new found friends of our family. Andrew’s brother and sister both made their own pilgrimage to Stonehouse in 1954 gathering what information they could without the use of modern technology/internet. Mr. John Young - Stonehouse historian, Heather Ibbotson of Ontario Canada, Reverend Andrew Jamieson Scott-Branagan of Australia, Scotlandspeople.gov.uk for the use of their endless catalogs of Scottish historical documents, and of course my own Mother and Father who have encouraged and aided in my studies. Mom's side = Setla, Dashkevicz, Bochnia, Scioma. Dad's side = Chiefly Scott. But also includes Van Wagoner, Gierman, Lang, Kelleghan, Cock, McChesney, Johnstone, Osborne, Ronaldson, Naismith, Shearer, Polson, Thomson, Walker, Jamieson, Branagan, Pionk, Tillman, Kessel, Brown, Caldwell, Johnston, and McDonald. I can go on and on. After all, “our ancestors had minds much less confused than ours." Yours aye, -Alexander Scott

The Scott, Randall and Orrett family.
I have been researching my Heyward, Scott, and Randall lines for many years, and would love to hear from anyone who can add any information at all about these families from Poole Dorset, Liverpool and Lancashire, England, and particularly anyone with any knowledge regarding the ship building business that both the Scott and Randall families appeared to have had in Liverpool England in the mid to late 1700's. Many thanks.
