Alexander Anderson and Rachel Stewart lived in a croft in Rhynie (called Purin/Pourin) from around 1824 until their deaths in 1889 and 1867 respectively. They had (at least) 9 children James (1823); Helen (1824); Mary (1826); Alexander (1827); Robert (1828); John (1832); Charles (1834) and Agnes (1835). I am looking for information on all of the children and their offspring. Some might have emigrated. I can find no trace of James or John. I know that Helen married an Alexander Findlay in 1850 but then she disappears. Alexander was a pharmacist in Aberdeen where he died in 1904 and Robert became a police inspector in Arbroath where he died in 1882. Any information would be very much appreciated.
