Old  Deer: A local scene

My 2x great grandfather Charles Simpson was born 15 Dec 1799 to James Simpson, a shoemaker in Stewartfield and his wife, Janet Scott. Charles had one sibling that I know of, a sister Mary born 26 Jan 1801 also in Stewartfield.

Charles became a surveyor, moving to Lonmay as "Overseer of Commutation Roads, Buchan". (He is buried in Rathen.)
I'd like to know more about the Simpsons back in Old Deer. I understand some other Simpson's from Old Deer went to Canada in the 1830s. I'd like to know if any stayed and meet current cousins. I'd like to know anything about Charles' parents, his sister, and any other siblings.
Wow! What a website! The only thing better would (will) be really walking through the villages and hills. I'm in Los Angeles, and I'm saving up my air miles!
Thank you for the foretaste.
