Disproven Existence Notice: Elizabeth Gordon

+9 votes
141 views
I'm currently engaged in a massive review of colonial Maryland immigrant Ninian Beall and his family.  Because of his prominence in early Maryland, he has attracted numerous legends and genealogical hangers-on.  (My Beall ancestors once thought they were related to him, but they're not!)

One legend is that before leaving Scotland he was married to an Elizabeth Gordon and had children by her.  So far, all the details of such legends disappear when scrutinized.  While it is plausible that Ninian was married in the years before leaving Scotland, there is no evidence that he did, and no evidence has been found for Elizabeth Gordon's existence.

She has been marked "Uncertain Existence" for a good while, and I propose that she be added to the "Disproven Existence Project".  This is the one-week notice.  Can anyone prove me wrong and find enough documentation for her to at least keep her in "Uncertain Existence"?
