Notes: Kivette in his genealogical charts on Scribbling Archie's children shows Jennet McNeill, below, having died in 15 April 1779. This could not be possible if her parents were married in 1771 and she herself married to John Atkins by whom she had children. It is more likely that 1779 was her birth year.
