McCrobert, William

Birth Name McCrobert, William
Gender male
Age at Death about 66 years, 4 months, 14 days


Father of James, grandfather of John, suggested by a "Confirmation Document" from Betty McRoberts Rode. OPR's confirm parentage of siblings, but do not include James.

Note it is likely he was older than 16 in 1721! So then, Elisabeth Connen would not be his mother.

  Narrative pg.71
"Housing was poor beyond belief: wretched hovels built of stone and mud, thatched
with fern and straw, unglazed holes for windows, no chimneys to give egress
to the smoke, which found a tardy escape as best it could, were shared in common
by the people and the cows of the farm, often without an intervening partition."
[typical tenant housing before 1750]
