Can someone tell me what cemeteries are located near Butterdales in the Parish of Dornock in the mid to late l800's.

Could anyone do a lookup for this family in any cemeteries near there or in cemetery or other records: The parents may be my ancestors, as I have a ggmother, Mary Ann Davidson, b l836 or 39 and this couple did too. Also, have found an old letter mentioning ANNAN, which is in Dumfriesshire. Can't think why visiting that town would have been important to non-English descendants visiting England, unless it was because their mother was born in Annan. And Mary Ewart below was b in Annan, Dumfries-shire.

PARENTS: William Davidson, a laborer of roads during the l851 census, b ca l808 or l809 and his wife, Mary Ewart Davidson, b 808 or l807.

William was b in Kirkpatrick, Dumfries-Shire and Mary was b in Annan, Dumfries-Shire. They married July l5, 1830.

Their children:

1. David Davidson, christened 8 DEC l828 in Dornock, prior to their marriage.

2. Agnes b Feb 12, l833 in Dornock

3. George Davidson Christened l Feb l835 in Dornock

4. Mary Ann b 23 Sept l836 in Dornock

5. John Ewart Davidson, christened 20 NOV 1836 in Dornock

6. John Davidson, born 25 Sept 1836 in Dornock

7, Mary Ann, christened 6 Jan l839

8. William, christened 29 AUG l841 in Dornock

9. argaret, b ca l845 or l844, not in IGI, but listed in l851 census in this household

10. Thomas, b. Apr l8, 1846 in Dornock, Dumfries.


OK, here are some questions.

Mary Ann Davidson was the daughter of a William Davidson of Scotland. WHERE is SCOTLAND? I have no idea, really. According to her marriage record, she was b in l836. She m. William Docker of Westmorland, England. They came to America in l872, when my great grandmother, Agnes, was 2 years old.
According to her tombstone, (by calculation) she was b. 18 JUL 1839.
Which is more accurate? I think the marriage record might be. Her busband was b in l832, and that date agrees with his marriage record of l857, which says he was 25 when he married. I would like to know for sure her exact date of birth, and her mother's name. Can anyone help?
The following are the children of Mary Ann Davidson Docker and her husband, William Docker:
William b l859; d l864
Thomas b l859; d l9l9
John, b l860; d. l946
Robert, b l861; d. l948
Elizabeth, b l863; d l948
Mary, b l864; d l923 m. David Douglas in Montgomery Co., IA
Joseph, b l865, d l891
Edmund, b l867, d. l891
Margaret, b l868, d l938 m. a FRANCIS of Big Rock, ILL.
Agnes, b l870, d l965 my great grandmother m. George W. Jackson in Montgomery Co., IA.
Annie, b l871, d l872
Florence, b l872, d l895
Fanny, b l875, d ? I am looking for FANNY DOCKER and HER DESCENDANTS. CAN anyone help me? She m. Edward O. Pace
