--- Smith.
He married, or at least had issue with, Jannet Burnet [born 1722].
Her grave is strange. It has "Jannet Burnet" and "her son" William Smith. It does not mention husband. Jannet is not "Smith".
Maybe Jannet had a natural child?
Note she would be age 46 when child born.
Jannet died 20 Nov 1797, age 75 yrs [grave].
She was bur Banchory, Aberdeenshire.
She had issue:

  1. William Smith,
    born 1768.
