  • After George died, Jane married William Davie of Bogentassie, a farm about two kilometres from Lumphanan. Barbara Barendregt said she was remembered by residents of Leochel as being "fey" and was said to have predicted futures and dealt out lotions and potions which she brewed; people came from near and far to be "treated".
