So, as you can see, the earliest anything I have is the birth of Margaret Thompson in 1592 Scotland.I've been trying for years to figure out how the disowned brothers merge with my first John Barnhill.
If anyone needs any information about the above lines, I have a lot more than just my own ancestor researched.I usually have at least spouses and sometimes children for brothers and sisters of my direct ancestors.
I'm always up for comparing notes.You can reach me at email@example.com (most of my research is up at http://crustner.comhttp://crustner.com, but it's a bit outdated and not organized as well as I'd like.I'll be updating it sometime this summer).
