If anyone can provide information about the ancestors of John Maitland, b. 1840, Old Machar, Aberdeen, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you. I was stuck at a brick wall for over a year knowing that his parents were a Helen Innes and either a John or Francis Maitland. I now have records to show it was Helen and John who had John Maitland b. 1840, but they never married. His father went on to marry Bathia Scott and had more children with her.

I am primarily interested in information for families of:

John Maitland, 1815-1862, Old Machar & Helen Innes, 1821-1891, Old Machar

Bathia Scott Maitland, 1818-1891, b. Monquitter, d. Drumoak, Aberdeen

John's parents:
John Maitland, b. 1786, New Deer, Aberdeen, d. bef 1862 and his wife, Anne Taylor Maitland, d. aft 1862 (they were married 1810 in New Deer and had 3 children

Next generation:
John Maitland, b. abt 1750-1755, and his wife, Elspet Taylor Maitland, b abt 1755, they had 3 children.

That's all I have so any other details would be wonderful.
