James BROWN (abt 1801) had 3 successive wives, 8 children and one more potential child born out of wedlock (see Antenuptial Fornication). These lives centred around the farm, Woodhead of Dardarroch in the Glencairn parish of Dumfriesshire. After tidying up my records, I rewarded myself with a quick search for Dardarroch and lo and behold, the gravestone of James' parents was revealed to me (or at least the location and inscription):

Jun. 11, 1793
Apr. 29, 1870
This gravestone inscription has given me another child (Margret); death dates for John BROWN & Jean MAXWELL, as well as approximate birth dates.
It has also given me some other leads to follow, including 2 other 'Brown' graves on the Find A Grave website. Thankyou transcriber!
