Does anyone know what happened to Jeany?
NB the father of her child Jessie ORMISTON is variously given as Robert (her birth) or Andrew (her marriage) ORMISTON. I (Lorna) have assumed Robert as a handy candidate was found in the records in the right time and place, and the birth record is more likely to be accurate.
