The Parish Church, Nigg

The man sitting in the churchyard of Nigg Parish Church was a beadle called Jasper Vass. He is supposed to be pointing to what was known as the "Cholera Stone" marking the spot where the cholera was caught in a sheet and buried.

If this is the Old Nigg Church, I believe there is a gravestone marked JF KM 1830, James Fraser, and next to it a gravestone to Margaret Gallie (1881) and John Fraser (1902). If anyone knows any information about this family, I'd be very grateful to hear from you.

Can anyone advise if there is a James Grant Christie buried here, or any Christie's?
