Her baptism might not be there. It could have gone unrecorded for various reason - missing pages, clerical oversight, etc. I have about 4 or 5 baptsms missing in my line. They were born because they married, appear in censuses and died but they are not recorded as being baptised.

 There was also a period in the late 18th century when a tax was levied on parish registry entries. Some people refused to pay this and, although the child was baptised, the event wasn't recorded.

Hi Alan


I notice that James and Elizabeth's first daughter was an Agnes(e). ( Agnes, James, Peter, John, Jean, William)   This points to a possible marriage in Selkirk: 
17 August 1769:

Patrick Emond and Agnes Hatlie
