Hello,

I'd appreciate comments on this and the other KERR family as to the best why I can try and connect William b. 7 Sep 1814 Rutherglen - no death found so far - to the other children of Thomas KERR & Marion WARNOCK.

Elizabeth and Thomas should be two more children of that couple but I can't find a birth/baptism for either. That throws some doubt ? on the validity of the connection to those listed in the census.

Should I trace Margaret SHIELDS or Marian ROSS? Or James KERR, William's younger brother? I can find no children born to William & Elizabeth.
