Pedigree for Louise Underwood
     Jennet married Joseph Armstrong, son of Joseph Armstrong and Susanna (—?—) (Armstrong).1
     Some researchers say she was a Stewart, but the writer has found no proof. It is interesting that she had a granddaughter named for her whose middle name was Douglas. Without more information, it is impossible to rule out either surname.
