Recruit(AnotherWanted)The project would like to recruit another representative of this line.
The assignment of Thomas to Robert and Margaret (Patterson) is based on a family history inherited by (F-8)'s father, and passed down from Thomas' dtr. It is however supported by the naming pattern of Thomas and Elspeth's children. Given that Thomas was born around 1790, and Robert and Margaret married in 1778, there is rather a large gap where other children would normally be, so this relationship may well be completely spurious.
