Hi Jamison,

Reading your post there, andI am not sure of the marriage between William Couper b 1794 to Janet McIntosh b 1803, you have date of marriage as 06 Apr 1806, that would make William 12 and Janet 3, so possibly a mistype of date. Could it be 1826 instead?  Where did you get this info, seems so complete for that time. The mis-spelling of Edinburgh makes me suspicious too.

Tom
Scotland - Buchanan, Thomson, Pat(t)erson, Stewart, Ritchie, Tracey
Ireland - Tracey, Conroy, Pat(t)erson.

Hi
1806 date refers to a Janet McIntosh's birth not marriage.

Hi Jamison,

That explains it that then. I thought that you had b 1803 next to Janet, that is why I thought the 1806 date may have been a mis-type. Sorry, I read it differently.

 I like the census results that J11 posted, seems to tie in very nice.
