    4. Regarding Graham Clan: My traceable line began with Alexander Graham, c. 1725- 1795) bur. Longstreet Church, Fort Bragg, North Carolina; (m) c. 1762, Mary McCormick (?- 1826), bur Longstreet Church, Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Transported from Argyll as a fugitive in the hills because he fought for Bonnie Prince Charlie in the war of the ’45’. Sea Captain, John Paul Jones was commissioned to provide safe travel and to bring Alexander and Mary and their most of their children to North Carolina the winter of 1779-1780.

      And so it began; the removal of at least 10 other Graham Clansmen, wives and children, from Kintire, Argyllshire, to Canada. My line continues: Alexander, (1725-1795); to John (1763-1844); to Duncan (June 1, (1786-1873); to Donald, (1819-?); to Archibald, (1862-1942).

    16. My grandmother was born in Shotts Scotland. Her maiden name is Clelland. I never met my great grandfather from Scotland however I did met my great grandmother.

Daniel Johnson (1800-1857) he married Celia Adeline Cole (1811-1892). They lived and died in Tennessee. Any help would be greatly appreciated!


    18. I have a couple in my family. My grandmother on my dad’s side’s surname is Montgomery, and my grandfather on my mother’s side, and my mother’s surname is Hamilton. We are from Penobscot, ME and Sedgwick, ME.

    19. Scots on my dad’s side, surname Martyn, emigrated to Bruce County, Ontario in the 1850s from the Isle of Lewis, and surname MacGregor emigrated through Nova Scotia to Bruce County then on to the Alpena, Michigan area in the 1870s. Scots on my mom’s side, surname McLean, emigrated earlier in the 1800s, and settled in the Burlington, New Jersey area.

    20. My great-grandfather James Simpson came to the US from Scotland circa 1879 into the NY/NJ area, married New York native Elizabeth LeBaron and settled in Passaic County, NJ. I’d love to get in touch with other descendants of these folks.

    21. My GrMother was born in Scotland/came to USA age 7. Married a McCallum. I’ve been to Scotland (2009) & visited my gr mother’s niece in Edinburgh.

    22. My name is Dave Bell, Clan Bell games commissioner in Utah. Our surname considered a dynasty name long before last names. There were Bells who were Crusaders and other Bells that changed the world! Bells were also a border Clan that fought a long side of William Wallace, whom also reported Bells were good fighters. Bells were one of the few clans that stayed true to Wallace. A riding Clan, Bells genesis can be found in Dumfrieshire. Bells were “Reiviers” and we’re considered part of the “Devils Dozen”… One the most feared and notorious border Clans. To learn more about the Bell surname please contact me at and visit . Also, Clan Bell North America on Facebook!

        1. Bells blended Scotch is the best, since 1825. Sadly, if only it were sold in the USA.

          Menzies be aware, Ha!
          In 1607, before he was clan chief, William Bell in Blackethouse the “Reidcloke” was implicated in a bizarre affair brought to the notice of the Privy Council. It appears that Sir James Douglas of Drumlanrig and the Rev. Robert Henderson and several others including Bell, had exhumed the body of William Menzies from a burial aisle in the Church of Durrisdeer. Adam Menzies, father of the dead man, had complained and the case went against Sir James Douglas and his accomplices. Then they “conceived a deadly hatred” against Menzies who alleged he could not go about his lawful business. Sir James Douglas had to find caution in the sum 4,000 merks Scots, and William Bell and others in the sum of 1,000 merks.

      1. Since the loss of the our last chief in 1628, while currently working on a Lyon Court petition for a new chief, Bells remain vassals (not septs) of the Great House of Clan Douglas.

    23. Grandfather, Thomas Lamb Scott, emigrated to America in 1877 from Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland, at age 16. He first settled in Chicago, Illinois, Leadville, Co., Butte, Mt. and Dillon, Mt. where he passed away at age 86.

      1. John Leslie came to America and settled in Pennsylvania with his wife, Ann Huston. They were the parents of Jacob (who married Jennette McClelland) born in the late 1700’s. They also had a daughter, Elizabeth and 5 other children, whose names I have not discovered, in or near Armagh, PA. After Jennette died in 1832, Jacob remarried to a widow,, Mary Mathews Menoher. They and Jacob’s five sons and daughter moved to Summit County OH, leaving Mary’s children in PA with grandparent for a few years. Jacob and Mary had 6 more children, three of which died young. Jacob and Jennette’s youngest son ,Samuel, and his brother, John moved to Buchanan County Iowa. Samuel and his third wife moved to Nebraska. Their children resided in South Dakota, from there, the next generations have scattered throughout the USA.
        I would love to find more of John and Ann’s descendants! So, if your Leslie ancestors were born in Pennsylvania, we may be related. By the way, my father was Charles Walter Leslie. The name Charles is quite common among my Leslie relatives. We also have George, James, William, Willis, Archie, Sheridan, Karl, and John.

      1. My mother was a MacLachlan and can trace her ancestry back to the castle in Scotland. They first went into Canada above Niagara Falls and then went to Scotland South Dakota where they resided until death.

    24. I’m a member in good standing with the Robertson Clan! My Grandmother was born a Robertson, and she remembered her grandfather talking about ” the bonnie hills of home. “

    25. This is fun. The Alexander Robertson School was founded by Scottish farmers and merchants 225 years ago in New York City. We are one of the oldest co-educational schools in the USA. I wonder if any of our alums are seeing this (not that they are all Scottish, of course) but some are!

    26. I Moved over to Indiana back in May 2003 and married my beautiful lass the following month. I come from a wee village called Thornton which is in the Kingdom of Fife (just north from Edinburgh). I obtained my citizenship in 2009.
      I am so glad to have found this website as it help me to see all the other Scots that are in the vicinity…and to realize that I am not “standing alone” here….lol
