Also, how could this Elizabeth have married anyone if she didn't live past a year old?

Stuart-8211 and Stuart-36 appear to represent the same person because: I see the obvious date differences but have been working on this area of my tree as there is a lot of conflicting information but none of it with any actual sources here or on the blogs cited. The REASON I proposed the Merge is to correct the fact that both women are connected to the same spouse, Archibald Stuart, which is not possible. I am hoping between the questions I've asked in the various comment sections and with these proposals we could all work together to sort out the actual lineage of (I'm guessing all) of our shared direct ancestors. The information becomes a bit doggy or spotted around Mary Stuart and William Baskin of Donegal, Ireland. But the lineage means a huge difference as we have parentage linking to 2 different common country areas, royal ties and a noble family as well. Thank you for looking in to this and hopefully passing the information to others. I am copying and pasting this on each page.

Cheers! Becky Elizabeth Simmons-11603

Stuart-8211 and Stuart-36 do not represent the same person because: Stuart-36 died at less than a year old circa 1678, and can't possibly be the same person as someone who married and had a child. The husband and child have been removed from Stuart-36.

That was my original comment but it didn't garner attention so I figured the later would. Thank you for helping me untangle one more knot in this line. - Becky
