- Marriage: Alexander Hacket circa 1728
"Patrick Wilson at the Mill of Auchry had a child baptized named Christian Witnesses Mr John &(?) Andrew Hay (two words?) Mr Adam Hay A??y"
The reason for choosing this Christian Wilson is based on the Alexander Wilson schoolmaster of Monquhitter who witnessed the baptisms of her two known children Alexander and Anna. The following suggest strongly that Alexander Wilson's father was Patrick Wilson in Monquhitter who also had a daughter Christian in 1706.
BIRTH: Date Calculated> aged about 73 at death in 1775.

CHURCH: Licensed by presbytery of Turriff 1731.
CHURCH: Presented and ordained 1745.

This entry is not entirely consistent with the 10 baptisms found none of which is an Elspet but some may have die and I may be missing some.
[Under this stone rest the ashes of a sober and upright man, Patrick Wilson, sometime in Mill-
town of Auchry, who shewed piety towards God, innocence in his life, prudence in his family, courtesy to his friends, and kindness to his neighbours, and whose death overwhelmed his family with affliction, his friends with grief, and his neighbours with sorrow. He died deeply regretted, leaving behind him nine children by one wife, on the 3d day of May 1723, in the 64:tli year of his age ; and his wife, Isabella Mackie, erected this monument. It is my turn to-day, it will be thine to-morrow. ]
