- Jennifer Douglas has been doing more genealogy research, and found
the following regarding Sarah Rebecca MACKY's
[B.6] sister, Sarah Campbell:
Hello I did a little more research as I saw
your entry regards Sister Sarah Campbell's death in 1855.
I knew that Sarah Cochrane had married Francis McElwaine who died 1837.
So I search[ed] Sarah Campbell and have found her death 8 January 1855 (so
fits Rev Macky's jouranl entry) and her marriage (using Sarah McElwaine)
to John Campbell:
I always wondered how my Henry met a girl from Coleraine, Derry and now it makes sense.
