Fifth Generation

54. Isabel Birley3,71,191 was born before 1821 in Restalrig, Nr. Edinburgh, Scotland. BIRTH-PROBLEM: It appears that the Pedigree book has attributed 6 children to James' marriage to Mary incorrectly. If it were correct, then the birthdates of all six children were prior to Jane's death, and would imply an inappropriate relationship between James and Jane that is hard to countenance for six children. It would seem more likely that the six children belong to Jane. Isabel, however, presents a problem in that the Pedigree attributes her to Jane, but without birth or death dates. It may be that she could be Mary's child, but until such evidence is developed she is indicated as Jane's first child, born prior to those for whom we have dates.
