111 ???? May have had a sister Julia Prendiville, as we have a DNA ????match with her descendants. Julia was apparently born c 6 Mar 1808 Co Kerry married in Ireland to Thomas O'Brien and had three children in Ireland. She may have m (2) John Wallace. Her children included Mary H m Bartholomew Diggins (a Causeway, Co Kerry name also). One source says not 100% sure her name was Prendiville - given the DNA match this seems likely, but if not, then it was surely Donoghue. Julia died 26 Nov 1879 at Washington DC, USA. There is a photo of Julia here:
O'BRIEN. On November 26th, 1879, in the seventieth year of her age, Mrs. JULIA O'BRIEN, a native of Tralee, County Kerry, Ireland, and a resident of Capitol Hill for the last twenty-five years. Her friends and relatives are respectfully invited to attend her funeral at 9 o'clock a.m. on Friday morning, November 28th, 1879, from the residence of her son-in-law, Bartholomew Diggins, 743 Sixth street southeast, and thence to requiem mass at St. Peter's church.
[Paper: Evening Star, published as The Evening Star.; Date: Wednesday, November 26, 1879; Page: 3; Location: Washington (DC), District of Columbia]
Unconfirmed data claims her maiden name might have been Prendeville.

113 A death occurred last night under somewhat peculiar circumstances, the actual cause being an accidental cut on the arm. The deceased, Mr. John Petrie Speed, held the post of collector and canvasser for Messrs. Taylor and Erskine's bottling establishment, Courtenay Place. About a fortnight ago, he accidentally slipped and fell on a broken glass bottle, cutting his arm rather severely, a small piece being taken clean out, and one of the muscles slightly wounded. The cut was dressed, and he complained of but little pain, going about his work as usual. On Tuesday last, he complained of sore throat, and fancied he had caught cold. He became rapidly worse, however, and had to take to his bed, frequent spasms, apparently of a tetanic nature, setting in. Yesterday morning unmistakable symptoms of traumatic tetanus appeared, and in the afternoon he succumbed to its effects. Dr. Harding who was in constant attendance did all that was possible to relieve his sufferings, but without avail. The deceased was about forty-five years of age. He came from Nelson a year or two ago, and has relatives at that place and in Marlborough. He leaves a widow and five children, we regret to learn none too well provided for. [Evening Post 30 June 1877] Speed, John Petrie Wine & Spirit merchant in Nelson, Hotel-keeper in Motueka, arrived in NZ c 1862 (I12)

121 A woman named Rose Donnelly, late of Campbell's Gully, expired rather suddenly, at the Hospital, on Tuesday last. She was suffering from bronchitis, occasioned by exposure to the severe cold at Campbell’s diggings. The deceased woman resolutely passed the whole of last winter in that inhospitable quarter. [Dunstan Times 2 Oct 1868]

BLACKS. October 9th. A former resident of Blacks — a respectable woman — lately died from the effects of inclement weather. She died at Campbell's diggings, which are remarkable for having the coldest climate in the Dunstan district. She was the sole female resident of Campbells, and used, to sell spirits to the few miners there. Her mercantile ambition was satisfied, for she died with a competency; but her loss is a lesson to all who would go and do likewise. [Otago Daily Times 14 Oct 1868]

In 1883 he secured the appointment of road surveyor for the county of Kirkcudbright, a position which he occupied for the long period of 23 years, retiring in 1906, and taking up residence in Kirkcudbright.

148 Aberdeenshire epitaphs and inscriptions : with historical, biographical, genealogical, and antiquarian notes, by John A. Henderson 1907:


A tablestone bears:
To the memory of James Cumine of Kininmonth, who died May, 1803, aged 67. Also of May Ferguson, his spouse, who died November, 1770, aged 34 years, and of Elizabeth, Charles, and Sophia Cumine, their children, who all died young. As also of Charles Cumine of Kininmonth, father of the said decease James Cumine, who died anno 1764. aged 57. And of May Cumine, his daughter, and Alexander Cumine, his brother, both long since deceased, all interred in this place. This stone is erected by Alexander Russel of Moncoffer and Margaret Cumine, his spouse, daughter of the above-mentioned James Cumine. 1822.

The lands of Kininmonth were for a time in the hands of a branch of the Gordons, and thereafter of the Hays of Delgaty. In 1584. William Hay of Delgaty granted a charter to Elizabeth Keith, elder daughter of Robert Keith, Commendator of Deir, in life rent, and to Alexander Hay, his elder son and heir-apparent, of the said lands, including Mill of Perskow or Denend. (Reg. Mag. Sig. V., 1626.) William Hay of Delgaty and Kininmonth played an important part as agent and counsel for Bothwell when charged with the murder of Darnley. He espoused the cause of Montrose, and was present at the defeat at Invercharron. He was captured and beheaded 7th June, 1650. Shortly afterwards Kininmonth is found in the possession of the Cumines, a branch of the original Buchan family of that surname. Gavin Cumine — the first of the new sept — married Katherine, daughter of John Hay of Seafield — the dowry of the bride being one thousand pounds Scots. John Cumine, their son, succeeded. He married Mary Keith, of the Marischal family, and their son Charles became laird, and married Sophia, daughter of James, 15th Lord Forbes. He rebuilt the mansion house of Kininmonth, in 1740. Five years later he and his brother Alexander joined the rebels at Edinburgh, but through the intervention of powerful relatives were afterwards pardoned. Charles Cumine died in 1764, and was succeeded by his son James, who married May Ferguson of Kinmundy, who died in 1770 at the age of 34, as stated in the above inscription. In 1792, Margaret Cumine, elder daughter of this marriage, married Alexander Russell, son of Russell of Montcoffer, and thereby carried the property to the Russell family. The present proprietor is Major-General F. S. Russell, C.M.G., of Aden. Many of these particidars were contributed by Rev. Andrew Chalmers, Wakefield, who also generously allowed extracts to be taken from his very complete sketch, The Manor of Kininmonth.
