Emailed note from Brenda Young explained that the tombstone erected to John and Jean years after their death has the dates in error. She told me in 2002 that she believed that the Lymburner line is: Thomas>Alexander>Robert>Matthew>John>Our John and Matthew. She was looking forward to checking wills in Scotland to verify this line. She hadn't found any tartans for Lymburners, but said that the Glen Family is from Mackintosh and Chattan Clans. The story passed down about Matthew and John marrying two sisters is also false...the truth being that John married two sisters.
