There appears to be a bit of a bizarre story to go with Archibald and Margaret, but I'll see if anyone replies first!!
There are loads of possibilities here - Surely someone else (apart form you Anne!)is looking at this line!!!!
Anne and I are both stuck at the point of James and Ann - when were they born, where did they come from? - ANYTHING!!!!!!
