Hello Barbara,

Thank you very much.

I'll see if I can work out how Margaret fits in. :)

Then look for some deaths.

I almost have enough on my list for another 60 credits. :biggrin:

Regards,

Dave

Thanks Barbara.

I can't see a marriage for James to an Elizabeth MASTERTON.

I have a Mary who is old enough and a Janet who is not but no Elizabeth.

Mary MASTERTON b. 10 Jul 1834 c. 19 Jul 1834 Torryburn
George MASTERTON & Mary KENNEDY

Stuck at the moment.
