Yes, Simpson is clear on both the marriage cert and death cert of Alexander.

Ooh, well done! I see it's on the IGI, yet I could have sworn I'd searched for those names.

There's a possible death for Isabella in 1868 on SP.

(Mary's post #10).

I found the death of an Isabella Gordon, other names Bonnyman, aged 92 in Grange, Banff in 1903.

I wonder though, if she were really Isabella Chalmers in 1834, whether she would have been allowed to marry as Bonnyman. I get the feeling the Scottish kirk would have been very sniffy about her pretending to be a married woman.

Oh, DURRRH! Can't be her as Isabella Chalmers Simpson was dead by 1897 (Alexander's death cert).

Would someone like to hit me very very hard, please.

I kept ignoring this. Over and over again.

Alexander Bonniman born 15 Feb 1832 baptised 14 May 1834 Keith, Banff.

parents John Bonniman and Isobel Elder.

I ignored it because I thought it must be the OTHER Alex Bonnyman, the one who is a FS with the Milne family. Mine, after all, is Isabella Chalmers....,

BUT lookathis:

Marriage

Isobel Elder to John Simpson 16 December 1848 Grange Banff.

It has to be her....doesn't it?
