BMDB data

     Janet Sutherland was estimated to have been born say 1755 ?Halkirk, CAI, SCT.1,2
     Janet Sutherland married Donald Gray, son of Donald Gray and Kathrin Morgan, on 17 Aug 1781 Par. of Halkirk, CAI, SCT, entry reads: "Donald Gray in Mibster was married to Ja[net] Sutherland in Tormesdale the 17th August."3,4,5,6
     Janet Sutherland died bet. 1800 - 1841 ?Sibster, Par. of Halkirk, CAI, SCT.3
     With no known sons born to Donald and Janet we have few clues as to a potential father for Janet, but her mother may be an Elizabeth.
Research activity Nov 2013 on the related GRAY and SUTHERLAND families tends me to the possiblity that she may be a sister of the Margaret SUTHERLAND who married William GRAY, who is documented on a family chart of the 1880s as the daughter of an Alexander in Dale. Naming pattern for William & Margaret's children also indicate that Margaret's mother may be an Elizabeth.2

Census/Where lived/Occupations

     Janet Sutherland lived in Aug 1781 Torm(e)sdale, Par. of Halkirk, CAI, SCT.6 Fr Sep 1785 - Jun 1787 Janet Sutherland and Donald Gray were living Toftingall, Par. of Watten, CAI, SCT.7,8

All the other info

     Janet Sutherland and Margaret Sutherland were possibly related Janet and Margaret are at least sisters-in-law - are they sisters? Naming pattern of children indicate both are likely to be the daughter of an Elizabeth but Donald and Janet didn't have any known sons to see if Alexander was a significant family name for them.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.
