I was intrigued by your post regarding your John Ross. I have somewhat the
same dilema. I also have an ancestor who was sent to America at the same
time in the same manner. I too, have a ton of information regarding the
family once they arrive in America. My problem is finding where in Scotland
he came from. Seems the name changed and I can't make any connections to the
home land. So I keep digging hoping I'll figure it all out in the end. My
family is the Bradeens. There were 3 brothers who came to the Boston area in
the same time period as yours. I haven't been able to find them on any ships
list as yet because not all the prisoner ships kept manifests.
Well, there you have it. I know I wasn't any help in answering any of your
questions, I just wanted you to know our ancestors where figuatively - in the
Have a great day.
