Narrative and Notes

Betty/Betsy AINSWORTH was the likely wife of Firth ARCHIBALD, although no marriage record has been found. Their son David Ainsworth ARCHIBALD's name and the burial of Hannah AINSWORTH (possibly Betty's mother) with Margaret Ellen ARCHIBALD (possibly a daughter of Betty and Firth) suggest the AINSWORTH connection.
