Sharonrose...I got lost back in July 2010 with the Hamilton Glovers...!!
What you really need to do is get the MC of James and Eliz...(? McConnell) to confirm these are the parents of James Armstrong who married "Eliz.Addis"
Dont assume James was the only child of Jas.snr and Eliz...there may have been others but just not listed living at home....
