The problem is that I have not been able to verify one of these dates!!!! Scotish Index, British, parish records etc.. We know that Julia Ann (also know as Amelia) was born in Nova Scotia. Could all of the children been born during foreign postings? Does anyone connect with any of these names and have any confirming details?
