This is an on-going process and is correct to the best information I have at this time. Changes will occur as more information becomes available to me. Not all dates have been verified personally so I cannot guarantee that these are totally accurate. The facts, unless sourced by named relatives or websites, have been analysed and rewritten to develop the stories and are thus my intellectual property. Lorna P. Cowan since 1966, and published since 2002.
