Thanks Ann. From the marriage of Donald McBain and Williamina McBain in Aberdeen in March 1897 her normal residence is given as Greenhill, Deskford. She is also recorded on stone D102. I haven't yet worked out how closely they are related (if indeed they are). Her spouse's details are shown as Captain Donald McBain.

I can't find anything to explain the Keith connection though on Williamina McBain's death certificate (albeit in 1958), her normal residence is Keith.

On the marriage certificate his occupation looks to be Shipmaster so I'm not clear why he'd be down as Mate on CWGC or AB on the Portsoy memorial. I haven't yet found details of the crew of the Ballogie.

Just one question - being rather new to this - what does the abbreviation ADJ stand for?
