Could you be so kind as to tell me how you have substantiated that Elizabeth had a brother Peter ? I have a
family bible belonging to Peter Gordon who married my great,
great great grandmother, Mary Drillio from that union a daughter, Sarah was born. Sarah Jean Gordon married John
Cruickshank, son of James Merklin Cruickshank.
Any further info you may have on Peter, would be much appreciated. I have documented Peter Gordon, widower, farmer in Musquodoboit, applied for marriage bond to Mary
Drillio 26th of June 1824 in Halifax, N.S. Your discovery would imply John Cruickshank married his cousin, ( this is
not totally uncommon for that time ).
