!Source: Mary P Odam's website at www.odam.org. Mary says: "Most of our information about the Penmans was bequeathed to us when my father in law died. A gentleman called Eric Edwards [another Penman descendant] had done most of the hard work, presumably, like you, poring over registers." She has verified most of it with www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk.
!Notes: James Hotchkiss had marriage date as: 15 Oct 1748, while Mary Odam has it as 22 Oct 1748. There are often two dates posted for Scottish marriages, so both could be correct.
