Notes for Elizabeth:

Records are not clear on Elizabeth's last name. In Madge Looney Crane's book, she thinks Elizabeth last name could have been Llewellen because this name appears in Maughold Parish in the early 1700's and is very near a historic seat of the Looneys, Ballygilley Farm/Village. Others that have done research on the Looney family said that her last name could have been Stover or Barabar.
