Ancestor Mysteries #5

#5: Hugh Mahurin and Mary Campbell: Hugh Mahurin is believed to have been born in Scotland or Northern Ireland. It would be nice to learn which. Hugh's wife is thought to have been Mary Campbell. This is based on Hugh naming a son Ebenezer, not a common name for the Scots-Irish, and that one of Hugh's neighbors was Ebenezer Campbell.

The story is quite plausible, but as of yet unconfirmed.
