The information for this family comes from a photograph of a memorial stone in Newburgh taken by Gordon Will. John's occupation is given as Shipmaster.
The absence of spouse details for both Jane and John may mean they never married, also the lack of mention of Alexander could mean he died very young.
ANESFHS Ancestor Chart 3955 gives Alexander's parents as Alexander + Ann Bean of Foveran.
Neil Watson has written with the following details about the children of Alexander:
...John Mutch the Shipmaster had a small fleet of lighters which carried goods up and down the Ythan, my ancestor, George Watson, the spouse of Elspet was one of his skippers.
I have found out that George (my gggrandfather) was drowned off Newburgh pier and I would appreciate knowing the circumstances. I also know that he was born in 1826, but I don't know for sure where. Elspet was his 2nd wife, his first wife died in childbirth.
