Re: Comments on 1796 and all
Comments on your email to me:
1) You wrote:
I spent a time puzzling over Elizabeth Waid 'Meharg'. But had you
that she is lightly crossed out? I tried to read 'Married' or something.
No luck. But it's clearly a comment.
MEHARG is a surname. See two other MEHARG families #144 and #145.
2) I had to reduce the original copies a tiny bit for them to fit on
the page The actual size of the copies I have and I assume the original
size is: 8" x 12".
3) Alot of the families I did follow them through in order to work with
1796. It helped alot. I have my notes some place.
4) Now a few notes you have on the families: I=individual F=Family
Page numbers are from your typed copy & not the original:
Page 1, MYOGHOL
Page 4, I #23, Jean Harper: I noticed for the first time a 2 is to the
right of her name.
Page 4, I#25, Susanna Dunlop: also has a 2
Page 4, F#7, Nelley
Page 5, No #, Kelaghan.the way I view this name.
Page 7, F#26, Margrat & Dugal are clear. Re: William...on the original
it has Will with no m for William. For the first time, I believe it is
"Hill" and not "Will". See what you think. Check the "H" in "James
Hill" on page 15, listed below family #71.
Page 15, I#351, "amas" or "omas"
Page 16, F#74. John is faint but Mary, Brise, John, James are quite
Page 17, F#84, "??? do"; It is definitely "Wm" There is also a blank
Matthew Paton and Wm
Page 17, I#400, Cochran is clear
Page 20, Note you made below family #97. Remove the note, "Below
Jennett....is the number 9". The line and #9 is my line. Why I left it
, I don't know. I was dividing where page 9 begins and ends and where
page 10 begins. Also on pages 22 & 24
Page 20, F#101, I#472. I see it as "Mihall/Mihael. I do not see a "K"
Page 28, F#143, I#698. Begins with a C and ends with -elous.
I really like this idea of a group effort. I like the creditibily of
three people scrutinizing the work.
