My genealogical researches have uncovered dozens of devout ancestors. This is the fifth installment of a series of posts titled “Doing God’s Work: Our Families’ Faithful”, documenting the lives of those who have served God.
In the previous post of this series, I presented the life and times of Rev. Joseph Hull. This one focuses on family members who served as either the Abbot of Abernethy and the Abbot of Dunkeld.

On this day, 4 April 1406, Robert III of Scotland died. He was my 19th great-grandfather.
Born at Scone Palace on 14 August 1337, he was the eldest son of Robert Stewart, the only child of Walter Stewart and Marjorie Bruce, and Elizabeth Mure, daughter of Adam Mure of Rowallan and Janet Mure. At his birth, he was named John Stewart of Carrick.
