Amelia Luthman

Amelia and her husband stand out amongst this group for their places of origin: Orkney, Sweden, Greenock, all unusual for the Charlotte Chapel group. The connection seems to be with another, more local, couple who had married in the chapel a decade previously, Mary Congalton and Alexander Ramsay. But the intriguing links remain unearthed.
