baptism of Ben b 1861 - I realised earlier that Sybella was actually Isabella as they named a daughter Isabella Cumming HEPBURN ( she married a cousin as well- William HEPBURN)

name: Benjamin Hepburn
birth date: 24 Oct 1861
birthplace: PRESTONKIRK,EAST LOTHIAN,SCOTLAND
father's name: James Hepburn
mother's name: Isabella Weitt

I thought Isabella was nee WATT ( thats what it looks like on the original records)but the gravestone record says WAITE

Benjamin H who went to NY said he was 5ft 6", fresh complexion, fair hair and blue eyes...see Ellis Island website
