It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Make the Electoral College a permanent government body with seat distribution proportional to the party tally in each state and give it the right to approve cabinet members and under secretaries instead of the US Senate!

Erskine 1

: Erskine of Erskine, Erskine of Kinnoull, Erskine 'of Mar'
Henry de Erskin a 1226
1. Sir John of Erskine a 1260
A. Sir John of Erskine a 1296
i. Sir William Erskine of that ilk a 1331
a. Sir Robert Erskine of that ilk d 1385, Chamberlain, Ambassador
m1 after 07.1335 Beatrice Lindsay d before 1352, dau of Sir Alexander de Lindsay of Crawford
1 Sir Thomas Erskine of that ilk d before 28.05.1404
m1 c1365 Mary Douglas d by 30.06.1367, dau of Sir William Douglas of Lugton and Liddesdale
A child b/d by 30.06.1367
m2 before 13.04.1370 Janet Keith d 1413, dau of Sir Edward de Keith, widow of Sir David Barclay of Brechin
B Sir Robert Erskine of that ilk, 1st Lord d 1452
Sir Robert claimed the earldom of Mar through his mother's mother's mother Elyne/Elen, daughter of Gartney/Gratney, Earl of Mar. The claim was not formally accepted until the time of John, 6th Lord Erskine. Even then, however, there was uncertainty as to whether or not the identification of that lord as Earl of Mar was acceptance of his family's longstanding claim or a new appointment. The intervening lords are nevertheless sometimes referred to as 'de jure Earls of Mar'.
m1 ?? Stewart dau of Robert Stewart, 1st Lord Lorn
There is some confusion regarding the identity of Sir Robert's wife. We show both of the alternatives and point out that he may have married first one then the other. We show that but stress that this is an assumption. The precedence amongst the Erskine records to naming the Stewart daughter before Elizabeth Lindsay suggests but does not prove that Robert's heir was born by that Stewart.
i Thomas Erskine, 2nd Lord d by 1493 - continued below
m Janet Douglas possibly ?? dau of James Douglas, 1st Earl of Morton
m2 Elizabeth ? Lindsay dau of David Lindsay of Glenesk, 1st Earl of Crawford
As noted above, there is some confusion regarding the identity of Sir Robert's wife. According to TSP Mar, dispensation for the marriage between Janet and Walter Stewart was obtained because they were related in the 3rd degree which supports the view that she was daughter of Elizabeth Lindsay. As it is another assumption that Janet was born after Thomas and 'hence' that Elizabeth was Sir Robert's second rather than first wife, there is no indication as to who was the mother of Christian or Elizabeth.
