  • 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: and I always wondered how my Henry met a girl from Coleraine, Derry and now it makes sense.
