Does anyone have information about these two people?  They were living at Greenholm, Scotland when their twins were born:  22 March, 1815, named Elizabeth and William.

You are the first person I've come across who has publically indicated the twins are in the family tree!  I'm not having any success proving the parentage of their mother, Jean Livingston.  Do you have any info you can share?  Carole
