Subject: [ABERDEEN] Jacobites of 1715 and 1745 of Northeast Scotland

I found this book at the library here in Jacksonville, Florida and I am willing to do look ups.  In some cases, it is only the name with place of origin and the comment, Lurking after Culloden and in other cases there is more information.

An example:  1745: Leith, Alexander from Collithie Parish of Gartly, Aberdeenshire. He was at least 50 years when he went into England with the Jacobites.  Prisoner at carlisle.  He was executed 28 November 1746.  On the eve of his execution he wrote to his brother that the child of Elizabeth Anderson who on his advice had named John Chisholm as the father was in fact his. (p. 32).
