I just sourced and updated DeHaverington-5--based on Douglas Richardson's research, DeHaverington-5 is pending to be merged to the correct parents. I have all three copies of Elizabeth Harrington attached as wife to John Stanley to lessen any confusion. As RJ mentioned back in 2014--this profile is connected to incorrect parents

The dates are only guesses. She wasn't born at Hornby and we aren't sure what her name was. Her LNAB is up for grabs, her parents are wrong, and her kids need work. Her husband is the only fixed point here.

DeHaverington-5 and Harrington-267 are not ready to be merged because: Dates need to be checked and verified.
