Thanks for the update Katrina.

Do you still think my theory is sound?

Hi Paul,

Janet Scott's mother was Sarah Black. Janet was born in Renfrewshire 19 Jun

1779 and Christened 27 Jun 1779, Greenock Old or West, Renfrewshire. Her
father was listed as a farmer. James & Sarah Black were married 5 Feb 1773,

Greenock Old or West. I have both copies of OPR's
