Yes. As I thought. You have much pleasure tying to coerce the 'puter to do
your will!

Actually Lavonne's in a similar situation, using a Mac. I offered to
help her with her broken HTML, but she can't even save the data in a
file fomat that I can use. May as well type the data in myself!

Anyway, she has a colour copy of the original 1796 list. She sent me the
GIFs - but they are a lot worse that her copy, so I can't use them for
correcting her transcription. Anyway - she's making a colour vopy from
hers and sending me that. I can then proofread against her file (that I
feduced to plain text) and see if I agree with her transcriptions. Any
that are in dounbt, I'll seek your help.

Discussing this may be a good thing to do via the BannValley list!

John: Which John are you looking for. We are happy (aren't we) that Jean's
son John is he in 1796 list, so went to America between 1796 and 1804.
Probably with family.

It is interesting that we have SO FEW Johns in Aghadowey...
1717: Alexander Terrence of Carnroe, To my grandson, son to John
Terrence, Alexander Terrence 
1740: PHHL. Probably same John in Desertoghil? 
1748: Archibald Torrence of Carnroe, Probate gtd. at Derry 10 Aug. 1748
before John Torrens

These three seem to be all the same John?

The naming pattern gives rise to oldest sons John - Alex - John - Alex etc

We have established
Alexander Terrance [Carnroe] b 1640 perhaps d 1717
John Terrance married Marion, born ? 1670?
Alexander Terrance in 1717 will. b. 1700 perhaps.

We also believe John=Jean has father Alex. He certainly has oldest son
Alex. John was b 1717. He's about the correct age to be a sucession
right through from Alex of Carnroe of alternating oldest sons.

What do you think?
