  2.   If this is the Isabel that is listed as Elizabeth in the importation record then she would have been born in Ireland, and Francis would have married Margaret in Ireland, so would rule out a first marriage to "Mary". This would support the idea that there was one wife only, and that when the original Order Book in Orange Co. was recopied that Marg. was changed to Mary.
