I am not sure if this is correct tho because many of the children have the same name.... Who knows?????
This is about all I have on the William Trollope and Mary Clifton family. Does it ring a bell? Let me know!
If this is a match, I can snail-mail the information I have to you at a later date. such as copies of the birth certificates etc.... Take care, Laura Petersen
