Will27 May 1772 Straban Township, York County, Pennsylvania, USA; James' will leaves household goods, etc. to an unnamed wife, and children Isabella (10 shillings in 1 yr.), Robert (executor), William, James (the sons received 2/3), Jane (1/3) and Nancy (1/3 (sic) and a two year delay). It is thought that this is the James, that John of York (died Oct. 1769) mentions in his will as "friend". According to the author of the sited Red Tower article, friend referred to relative or kinsman, usually a first cousin rather than brother, but the author thinks James may have been John's nephew. (The author believes James had a brother, John, but that he lived in Philadelphia, and that he had a brother, Robert who lived in Straban Township).; Principal=James Galbreath2,3

Will*28 December 1748 Donegal Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA; Donegal Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA, From John of Ireland database: Executors were: Brother John Galbreath [recall that she and John were children of the first James who came in 1718] and my son JAMES KARR
Children: Charles, Robert, and William Stuart, Frances Stuart, Margret
witnesses Janet (x) Galbreth (would have been her sister-in-law) and Elizabeth Kerr.

1) I can only guess that James Karr must have been son-in-law (perhaps spouse to Margret). Also James Karr was the accountant for the estate of Jannet, widow of John (he died in 1753). I have a feeling that this Janet was thus a Karr/Kerr. Was he spouse of Elizabeth Kerr?
2) There seems to be v. little consistancy in writing wills in the 1700s. I have seen many that neglected to mention daughters unless they were minors. I would have thought for Rebecca's minors there would have been some instructions. Perhaps there are orphan court proceedings. At any rate if James Karr is the son or son-in-law he was born by 1726 (and ditto for witness Elizabeth Kerr) I suspect Rebecca would not have born after 1708. I would still put it around 1702, so she could have married Alexander before 1718 and her family's departure.
I ran across the will of Rebekah Galbraith Steuart (SIC) as it was in the Galbraith folder at the Lancaster Historical Society. Kerr/Karr and Stewart/Stuart folders should be checked4
