...As you can see, I think I have something wrong. I have a Leah McKeachey of Wigtown marrying John Mason I... and also a Leah McKeachy (no extra "e") of Wigtown marrying John Mason III. I have just been finding a LOT of conflicting information... so If anyone could please help me clarify things and maybe help find out more that I don't know, it would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you!
