Thanks Geoff.

I found a tree with very little detail but it had Smith as a middle name. Wonder if Annan is her maiden name.

Tree info is not validated.. Just noticed the common factor was 21 July 1818..

Didnt notice any middle names 'Smith'?

Thanks Geoff.

Might have been an American tree with the maiden name inserted as a middle name. I hate the way they do that.

Most trees have nothing on Jessie/Janet' parents, though one has this, with nothing to support it..

"William Smith
–1858

Margaret Annan
–1858"

Interesting the trees have 1858 forJessie/Janet also?
