Any help for Ken's questions? I suggest you leave as a comment. Thank you. - Rosemary
I wonder if you can help me, please?
I understand that there is a history of the Knowe Chapel where I believe the
above John Anderson Smith was ordained in 1873. I understand he moved to the
North UF Church in New Castleton from about 1876 until 1898. I have some
details from census returns indicating he had 2 sons to his first wife and
one son to each of his subsequent wives before he died in 1911. Some of my
a) is the history of Knowe Chapel still available?
b) does it contain any information about John Anderson Smith?
c) his 1st wife, Jane Watson Steele died in 1878; is she buried in New
Castleton and in which cemetery?
d) his eldest son, William, born in 1874, Forfar, appears as an apprentice
lawyer in 1891 census and thereafter I can find no trace. Did he ever return
to New Castleton?
e) did John Anderson Smith continue in his ministry between leaving New
Castleton and his death in Bishopbriggs?
If you know any answers or can point me in the right direction, I might be
able to tie up a few loose ends. If not, no matter, I shall struggle along
and one of these days may even manage a visit to the area.
