I am having a tough time reconciling all of the Thomas Durhams listed as the father of George Durham (1720-1766). One family tree has Thomas Durham 1660-1715; another 1720s-1774; another born 1696. All assume he was from England.
Thomas supposedly met Margaret Lindsay (who was reportedly Scottish) enroute to the new world. A Scottish maiden boarding a ship by herself? There are Thomas Durham listed in Scotland at the same time as the English Thomas Durham. How do we know which one is the right Thomas?
