Christina and Donald McLEAN from Scotland 1837
||Elizabeth KEATING  |
- Elizabeth married a man named HOGFLESH but may have changed her surname to GRIFFITH. There is no confirmation of this possibility.
||6 May 1851
||Glen Osmond SA [1, 2]
||There is very little information about Elizabeth KEATING. She was apparently the only daughter of Margaret NEE McLean later Keating and later JOHNS. She might have been born about 1848 because the records associated with the death of mother, have her as 64 years old when her mother died on 30th July 1912. We have been informed that Elizabeth, married a man named HOGFLESH, but may have changed her surname to GRIFFITH. There is no confirmation of this possibility. As far as we know, there is no other information about Elizabeth. We were unable to trace her.  |

- on 27.5.2016 Lorna McLean altered the year of marriage of Margaret McLean to first husband from 1950 to 1850. the dates dont marry up AT ALL otherwise.
IN FACT THE PROFILE OF MARGARET MCLEAN STATES (even with above alteration-guesstimate-change) that her first child ELIZABETH KEATING was born 1848. Not unusual for those days as distances to registry offices are few and far between. At 20miles a day on horse back. Add a buggy, weather and a newly delivered baby to more travel time on a buggy.

states KEATING James, Margaret MCLEAN married 1850-08-08 at Manse, Freeman St, Adelaide SA, aged 25, 23. This is giving them birth dates of James in 1825, and Margaret 1827? Further research necessary to justify altering the BRB team research.
