Query by DocMac

Have confirmed Mary Jane dying young, family lore also has the Capt. dying at a youngish age. Family anecdotes also have us originating in Scotland, Isle of Skye, but I have no proof of that. Have just commenced my first attempt at tracing my family history. My thanks for assistance.

I found all the info on Ancestry from family trees but will need to be verified.
