Note: chson [Mother not named]. Uncertain if this is the same Jean of if her father is Hugh Hutchison. Her first daughter was born by 1791 and was named Janet Smith Doig after her mother Janet Smith. However her mother did not marry Hugh Hutchison until 1794, suggesting she was illegitimate. That Hugh was her father is indicated by him bequeathing his estate to her eldest son Hugh Doig, or it was agreed as part of the contract of marriage of her mother to Hugh Hutchison. It appears she and her mother lived together at the timeof thier deaths in 1822.
The burial record reads: Nov 27 Mrs Doig Main Street, aged.
