    How certain are you she was born in Scotland. This baptism looks promising.

    Alma,

    Thank you! Thank you! I have Martha's information as well as some of the others but not Alexander's. Originally I was surprised that my research led me to Scotland for Elizabeth when others were in Port Rush but research also shows that families do move around. This closes my gap. Appreciate the look-up and confirmation.

    We have an Antrim forum. Would you like me to move your thread to it?
