At any rate, today's wedding is that of my great-great-great-great grand parents, Ralph Oliphant and Margaret Archbald. They were married June 22, 1805 in Eckford, Roxburgh, Scotland. Their only child as far as I have found is Alexander Oliphant, born in 1806. Margaret Archbald Oliphant died March 1, 1808 in Kelso, Roxburgh, Scotland and Ralph died July 2, 1829, also in Kelso.
When I originally researched the Oliphants and Archbalds, I made note of the locations in relation to Edinburgh. I'm glad I did. To the east of Edinburgh is Haddington - where my Maitlands lived. They wouldn't meet up until about 1860. Click on the images to see a larger version of the maps.
