BMDB data

     John Gray was born cir. Aug 1765 Watten, Par. of Watten, CAI, SCT.1 He was christened on 25 Aug 1765 Par. of Watten, CAI, SCT; entry reads: Donald Grey and Catherine Morgan had a son baptized named John before wit: David ?Manson? and Alexander Mc(...) in Paddockfield.1
     Note that this is the third son of this name baptized to Donald and Kathrin in a span of 16 years. I have assumed that the other two died, and that the drive to have a son of this name is because Donald's father was a John. There are no marriages obvious on the igi for Watten and Halkirk of the right date to be this John.2

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area.
