 Parents: Robert "CROMARTIE", Helen McBEATH.  >per OPR -- (NOTE: His death register does not list his parents' names - it is a very incomplete entry, registered by the Procurator Fiscal.  I was able to pin down this particular death register in 1869 to this William Cromarty by noting that he was alive in 1859 to sign his daughter Eliza's death register, but that this William was notated as "deceased" in the death register for his other daughter, Helen, who died at age 18 on 15 Jul.1869.  A surname NORQUAY web site  (http://www.ingavoe.free-online.co.uk/norquay/reports/185121118.htm)  lists this William, son of Robert Cromarty and Helen McBeath, as having died on the 5th February of "1889"... I infer that the "1889" was taken from the gravestone - which could easily have been mistakenly read, since his year of death was 1869.)
