  • Notes 
    • (Research):Janet Tennent (2001)
      Carrie, Thanks this is who I am looking for. Does it tell what relationship Mary MILROY is to Alexina SERVICE? I thought in the beginning that Alexandria (aka Alexina) had the last name MILROY. This is what appears on the marriage extract. By the time she had children she was known as the former Alexandrina SERVICE. Big mystery to me.
