Elizabeth Stewart 1802 - 1861

Where did Elizabeth live in Dundee?

Good Morning, Kent.
1. The Scottish Genealogy Society has published a survey of the memorial inscriptions visible in 1881 and it is available from their web shop "Pre 1855 gravestone inscriptions in Angus - vol 4 - Dundee and Broughty Ferry" - 20 bullet points down in monumental inscriptions
Many of the stones noted in 1881 have succumbed to the frost of Scottish winters and air pollution and are no longer visible or standing.
The majority of burials do not have memorial stones, and the FDCA have indexed the burial records at
2. Innes Duffus, Hon Archivist of the Nine Incorporated Trades, is relentlessly pursuing the renovation of Morgan's Tomb and I copy this to him so he can update you on progress.
3. The Crown still issues royal warrants;

Dear Mr Gardiner,
Thank you for enquiry.
If you do an Internet search for   Logierait Church   you should find several articles which may help you. Two sites I found on Google which look particularly useful are and There are some photographs on (again search for Logierait Church) as well as a drawing of what is possibly an old stone font. There is no indication of where the font came from, but possibly it was from the old church. You can also find information about the parish in The Statistical Accounts of Scotland which you can access at and then click on the "Browse scanned pages" link under "For non-subscribers".
I did not find any pictures of the old church, but, if you have not already done so, you could contact:
