BMDB data

     Margaret Chrystal (T2e) was born say 1790 possibly in ?Kippen, STI, SCT. She married James Millar say 1815 prob. in ?Kippen, STI, SCT; This assumes that Amelia's dth cert has her correct father, and that Amelia's grddtr Millie Harbour nee Henderson's memory of Amelia's mother being a "Miss Crystal" was correct. The marriage is not obvious in the Kippen OPR (need to recheck this, but I believe I've checked the surrounding area - Perth, Kincardine, Clackmannon, Stirling and St Ninians.)2,3,4
     So where did Margaret come from?
Mitochondrial dna testing is a bit of a long shot to find out.
