Is this the same Duncan Ross, catechist, who died at Birichen.

Thank you for your comment. We do not have any further information about this Duncan Ross but perhaps someone else viewing the Image Library could help? - Administrator

They were not the same person - one was a teacher at Whiteface and the other was a teacher and catechist in Birichen. They can be seen separately in the 1841 census - one at Whiteface and one at Birichen.

Many thanks for your comment identifying the two men called Duncan Ross - Administrator
