Author talk:Robert Macpherson
Have found that Author:Robert Macpherson has written an article on Morison, and is listed as Rev. Robert Macpherson in vol. 39. Parked -- 14:50, 28 February 2009 (UTC)
- The other contribution is Duncan Mearns. Rev. Dr. ROBERT MACPHERSON (M.A., 1869; B.D., 1872; D.D., 1904), who has been minister of Elgin Parish Church since 1881, has resigned his charge. He is a son of the late Rev. Dr. ROBERT MACPHERSON, who was Professor of Divinity at King's College, 1852-60, and in the University, 1860-67. (The Aberdeen University Review].) The son is likely. This is all family connections to the divinity chair at Aberdeen; the father took over from Mearns, having married his daughter, and Mearns married the daughter of Morison. If I have that all straight. Anyway the texts of the biographies suggest personal connection. Charles Matthews (talk) 12:25, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
- Okay, I have tracked this down. b. 1850, Forres, Scotland; d. Apr 1926 Helensburgh, Argyll and Bute. Found in father's entry] in Fasti Ecclesiæ Scoticanæ. Still looking for his entry. I need a guide to parishes and synods of Scotland. Got it by persistence.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:57, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
