      Does anyone know anything about Penelope JOHNSTONE who m. Wm. ROSS in
      1819 in Dumfries? And, could she be the first wife of the William ROSS
      (below) who died prior to the census in 1841?
      Also, does anyone know anything of the Wm. ROSS below, b. abt. 1794 in
      Dumfries? He is listed as a tailor and a patient in the Dumfries infirmary
      on the 1841 census. Does anyone know what sort of ailment landed a person
      in the Dumfries infirmary in 1841? at home were his 4 children (listed
      below). Margaret may be the one who m. in 1843 in Dumfries to James HOWAT
      (listed far below). Mary may be the one who m. Wm HAINNING in 1846 in
      Dumfries. William seems to have disappeared by 1881 census, as has the
      father. I haven't looked for his second wife on the 1881. Does anyone
      researching the HERRIES family have a clue to her identity? Was she a
      HERRIES from birth, or had she m. pervious to a HERRIES?
      James, the final son could be the James who m. Margaret GIBSON (b.
      abt. 1821 Lockerby or Dryfesdale) in 1850 in Dumfries. They had a number of
      children, and are on the 1881 census. The children were John b. 1850
      Dumfries, Margaret Jane b. abt. 1862 Dumfries, Alfred b. abt. 1866 Hawick,
      Roxburgh, Janet b. abt. 1867 Dumfries, Jessie b. abt. 1869Troqueer, and
      Annie b. abt. 1872 Troqueer.
      Any clues or ideas greatly appreciated.
