      Looking for information on Jane/joan Greenlaw daughter of James Greenlaw & Margaret Richardson of Ayton.

      Jane was born at Fairnieside, Ayton 22nd July 1812. She married a Thomas Houliston (Ploughman) think Thomas was born in England, not sure? Thomas Houliston may have been married before?

      Jane Greenlaw died at Nethermains Chirnside 22nd May 1883.
      Thomas died 6th January 1870 he was only 49.

      They are interred at Ayton surrounded by Jane Greenlaws family. The Stone was until recently in very good condition.
      It has been knocked over, and split in half...either by natural
      causes or by Grass Cutting equipment???
