Diane,

Please disregard the last message,
from the dates involved it seems obvious
that James was the son of John of Donegal,
which may supply some clues to who Catherine
was since the scotch-irish of this period
pretty much stayed to themselves. Recommend
you do some reading on the migration of
1717-1720 of scotch-irish for Robert Temple
under a patition for Govenor Schute of
New England (Massachusetts)

Bill
