--SUMMARY
---We have no data on either William or Teige having offspring. Murtough, being a
---R.C. priest is assumed to have no offspring. This leaves us with the descendants of
---John, Edmund and James. The next sections will continue their bloodline lineage
---according to the following information:
-----John & Dorothy Mostyn - Melaghlin, William & Edmund
-----Edmund & Margaret Ussher - George & Nehemiah
-----James by Martha Ussher - Edmund
-----James by Sarah Wheeler - Nehemiah
---Records indicate that Richard and John (by Martha Ussher) died young and they
---also have been eliminated from further consideration. James (by Martha) is still
---under research but is not included until further study can reveal more about him.
