A Kirkpatrick / Hunter connection

Posted by Dawn-Ann on April 16, 2012

I was digging through my gravestone images looking for a particular one for a distant cousin. She has a Kirkpatrick in her tree that married a Hunter and she was wondering if I had anything I could share. Turns out I don’t (yet) but I thought I’d share this headstone anyway. The more information we get out there, the more we help each other, right?

Thomas Kirkpatrick, Catherine Hunter, Dumfries
