    Notes 
    • I am tentatively linking David to these parents (John & Euphemia) because David keeps turning up with Robert b. 1816, so it seems like they must be brothers. If I'm wrong, I can unlink him !

      Son David's obit says his parents David & Rebecca came from Scotland in 1828, and moved to MN on 9 Jun 1856.
