I would be very grateful if you could send me this information. do you know where your ancestors came from in scotland or any of their names as i would keep an eye out for any information i might come across that would be useful for you. my husband too has ancestors that emigrated to America from Scotland but as of yet i do not know their names it is something his gggrandfather used to tell his grandad but no names were passed on to my husband before his grandad passed away.

Hey my name is Faye Cowan.  I just started looking for information about my ancestors.  I have no clue yet where my family came from.. If and when I find any information I could let you guys know.  I am 19.  My grandmother is Juanita Cowan, still alive.  And my grandfather is older than her though.  He passed away when I was just a baby.. so in 1989 or 90 i guess.  His name was Carl, but I think his real name was ruffus carl cowan.  That's all I know now.  I will have to talk to my relatives to find out more.

Hi, Faye,

You could have knocked me over with a feather when I found out that my  grandmothers' maiden name was Scottish. I was always told it was Irish.

you can reach me at  estherw@toast.net

My family came from Pennsylvania by way of Scotland as well.  I was always told we were British and Welsh.  My grandfather is still alive and was born in PA. His father's name was Charles and was born in PA.  Charles' father was Robert who was born in Scotland. I have a cousin named Adam, so I wonder if they were all related.  Where in PA?
