Children were: Richard (19), Ellen E. (18), Maggie R. (15) and Jacobina (13.) In Middle Londonderry, in 1891, Elizabeth D. McLellan (64) was a widow, living with Alex L and Angelina Peppard.

The information seems reasonable, but the sources do not always inspire confidence and more searching is needed.
