Georgeann's ancestors
include  Susannah who married David CRAIG after her first husband, Thomas URIE died. Countless people claim Susannah is the sister of Elizabeth McCONNELL who married Solomon URIE, brother of Thomas URIE. Elizabeth McCONNELL is the daughter of Arthur and Elizabeth (WILSON) McCONNELL who owned a large farm adjoining Thomas URIE, Sr. in Independence Township, Washington County, PA in the late 1700s. 

We would be very grateful for leads on documentation. So far I've exchanged emails with about 30 people who research/or descend from these McCONNELL / URIE / CRAIG families. The few who recall how they added the info to the database all credit the same person who did research many years ago but none mention the original source such as a marriage record, bible record, etc. It's possible that Susannah was the sister of Elizabeth McCONNELL but before I invest more time tracing this line, I'd like to know the source. Another CRAIG descendent set out to prove/disprove the maiden name of Susannah many years ago and the results were inconclusive.

If Arthur McCONNELL served in the Revolutionary War (which seems likely) there might be leads in DAR applications.

Update 12 Nov 2010: http://www.gentree.info/wc03/wc03_136.html shows three husbands for Susannah. This is the first time I have seen Kinnet listed as her first husband.
