PARENTAGE NOT PROVEN.
We have two Robert Carlisle with father William Carlisle. WHICH ROBERT CARLISLE, the one married Nancy Bell or the one married Sarah Coleman, IS THE SON OF WILLIAM CARLISLE? The Robert Carlisle 1740 - 1786 with Rev War service does not seem to be the father of our John. In his will is no John listed.
Is this Robert Carlisle possibly the father of John Carlisle m. Nancy Sims?
