Biographical notes

Known only from an inscribed gravestone in Barr Kirkyard. The transcription reads:

quote : In memory of Jean McCeahie in Barr spouse to John Allan Shoemaker who died 24 Feb 1802 aged 81 years. John Allan died 30th Dec. 1807 aged 74. And Margaret Allan died August 1813 aged 4 years. Also John Allan the erecter of this stone who died 13th Feb 1832 aged 77 years.

The name McCeahie is possibly a phonetic spelling of the name McKie or McKay? There appears to be no record of the birth of Jean in the surviving Barr Parish Registers or of her marriage to John Allan.
