|Help needed to resolve James Milvain ancestry

|My great-great-great-great-grandfather was James Milwain, who was
born
|in 1755 in Wigtown County, Scotland. His wife was Jean Paul or Jean
|Saul (1749-1835) who was said to be the sister of John Paul Jones,
the
|famous American Revolutionary War sea captain. However, the book by
|Don Thomson expresses the view that she was not the sister of John
|Paul Jones. I still believe that she was, in part because all of my
|Graham Family relatives have heard this story from their ancestors
and
|believe that she was. However, that is not the issue I am discussing
|now.


John Paul Jones came from Whitehaven, Cumbria, so his sister would be
English, not Scots.
