About Elizabeth Spiers

I am contacting you about this profile: Elizabeth Spiers Elizabeth Spiers could no have been born in 1820 it must have been early 1819 as in Walter Synnots letters dated both 26th Aug 1819 (William and Sarah have 6 children) and on 9th September the letter lists Elizabeth as half a year old. I am a descendent of the Spier family as Wilhelmina, Elizabeth's younger sister married my forefather Alexander Miller Deuchar. All the best
