        {
NOTES: (1) The OPR birth/baptism register entry notates that William Laughton was 'presently in
            North America' at the time of his daughter's birth/baptism; (2) The OPR birth/baptism register
             entry was registered on a page with the year, 1848, written at the top ('Anno Domini 1848').
              Within the entry, it states that Margaret '...was born Fifth December and baptized Twenty
               Seventh January following, ...' indicating that her birth was in December of 1848 and the
                baptism was in January of 1849, the year following the one shown in the title on the
                 current OPR page (e.g. the International Genealogical Index and the GROS index
                  incorrectly have Margaret Laughton's baptism as '27 Jan 1848').

      Catherine Gray DUNCAN--

   parents: Gilbert DUNCAN/'Anne' THOMSON--['Liddle'] -- 
    Witnesses to baptism: 'in presence of Congregation'.


        {
NOTE: The OPR birth/baptism register entry was registered on a page with the year, 1849,
            written at the top ('A.D. Eighteen Hundred & forty nine') -- the heading on a baptism
             page indicates the year of baptism, unless an individual entry on the page states
              differently within its text.  That is not the case with Catherine's entry on this page,
               so it is my view that a year of 1849 for her baptism should be inferred.  Her entry
                states that Catherine '...was born the Tenth day of January and baptized the eleventh
                 day of Feby. ...' and since the headings on baptism pages normally depict the year
                  of baptism (unless otherwise stated), this suggests that a case could be made that
                   Catherine's birth might have been in January of 1849 and her baptism in February
                    of 1849 (e.g. in my view, the International Genealogical Index and the GROS Index
                     are incorrectly showing Catherine's baptism as '11 Feb 1850').
