Liner note info required. Robert Burns sent his famous poem to a Mrs Dunlop extolling the wonders of the river Afton. Who was she?

I have placed a similar inquiry about another woman to whom the poem is said to be dedicated, Mrs. Stewart, in thread 11200, which has more information on the song: Sweet Afton
(Trying to keep to a previously existing thread)
