Thanks Val.

The mmn Wilner confused me for awhile but that's an error for Milner.

Yes, that's part of my Malcolm tree. James b. abt 1820 Largs (no reg found) son of James and Mary Shearer.

I have to go now but later today I'll have another look at proving Mary and Margaret Shearer/Shearar are or are not sisters.
