Yes.

That Ellen Angel in 1851 had me puzzled for several years. I could not work out how someone that age could fit as there was only the one small family in all of Scotland.

2nd spouse of Thomas the soldier born Devon.
 
Thanks Ellie.

Didn't get time to view them during the day I spent in the library back in 2008.
