Name: Donald /Georgeson/ [1][2]


Date: EST 1730
Place: Par. of Bower, Caithness, Scotland[3][4]


Date: ABT DEC 1793
Place: Kirk, Bower, Caithness, Scotland[5]


Date: 06 DEC 1793
Place: Bower, Caithness, Scotland
Note: "Donald Georgeson in Kirk"[6][7]


The OPR has a 1712 Donald at Olrig, then another in 1771. The earliest Bower baptism recorded on Scotland's People is Elspet in 1756 to William GEORGESON, William being assumed to be Donald's brother given the Kirk connection and assorted baptismal witnesses between the families
Olrig only features for two GEORGESON baptisms (Donald 1712 and unnamed in 1720).
No apparent GEORGESON baptisms at all 1724 to 1741 on Scotland's People[8]


Husband: Donald Georgeson
Wife: Esther Miller
Date: 26 MAR 1755
Place: Par. of Watten, Caithness, Scotland
Note: Watten OPR reads: "28 Feb 1755 matrimonially contracted Donald Georgeson in Kirk in Bower and Esther Miller in Coggill (sic) accomplished 26 Mar 1755" (the igi has conflicting dates: 26 Mar 1755 Watten and 29 Feb 1753 Bower, which is rather far apart to be banns at weekly intervals for 3 weeks! Given the Bower record is an extraction, I had assumed that was the more correct, even though there wasn't a 29th that year, but it is definitely a mistype)[9][10][11]
