Do you know this sett?
My mother inherited this plaidie from her father, who said it was brought with them when they came to America. This was early 1800's. It was his grandmother's mother's side, he believed. They held it in great reverence. This was Susan BLACK Anderson (his grannie). Susan's mother was Mary MARTIN Black. Her mother was Barbara FORRESTER Martin. Mary and her husband John Martin were the immigrating ancestors. It appears that Mary Forrester's mother was a CARRICK. No idea what sett if any this is. If you know, email me!

Who did Lillian marry and where is she? (Slowly searching Ohio counties for her marriage and Michigan counties for births).
My grandfather was William. According to him, one brother moved to Texas to get rich. Ralph? Peter? John?
One brother stole the profits to the pub the family had in Ohio. Which of the three was he?
One brother committed suicide in the 1930's.
Come home! All is forgiven. We hope you forgive my grandpa for marrying that gal of Scottish extraction.
JOHN ANDERSON and SUSAN BLACK had the following children:
LOVE to contact descendents of the ungrayed ones. The gray ones died too young to leave anyone. Walter is my grandfather, so I have his children.
