    I’m doing some ancestor tracing, and have got back to an Alexander Cameron, who, on his death certificate has the note “real name McGibbon”, and a father listed as James Mcgibbon, Schoolmaster (Parish) and session clerk of Killin.
    His mother is listed as Janet McGibbon.
    Alexander would have been born around 1780.
    I would appreciate is anyone could provide information relating to James Mcgibbon.
    Are there any records remaining which could shed light on him being a Schoolmaster, or session Clerk?

    By 1881 census, more than 14 McGibbon people were living around the village, perhaps they were related to James Mcgibbon, but this is around 100 years later!

    I’ve now done fair bit more research on this part of the family, and have come across a number of document in the National Archives in Edinburgh which relate to James McGibbon. One is a letter inviting James McGibbon to attend a funeral. It says:
    John Campbell esq. of Glenfalloch, my Grandson, died here this morning and is to be interred in the burial ground of Stouckincapple.
    The favour of your company to attend the funeral on Friday forenoon 10th curt. betwixt Lochearnhead and Luib where the company intend to halt all night will much oblige.
    Your most obedient servant.
    Charles Campbell
    Callander 4th January 1812

    I was curious as to the location of “Stouckincapple”, as the OS maps don’t seem to show anywhere in the area with a name similar to that.
    Any ideas?
