No problem Dondi.

If a female you're tracing is the daughter of a Loyalist, you're much more likely to find references to her, often both her single and married information as she had to file a petition to get her land grant as the daughter of a Loyalist (U.E.) and show her connection and, if she was married (necessary if she was under 21 and claiming her grant) she'd need to indicate who her husband was.
