Hi Kim, thank you for getting back to me.I did eventually find out that John and Elizabeth settled in New Rochelle, although I did not know he travelled back to Scotland.
John was the older brother of my Great Grandfather James Archibald ADAM.James left home at 15, perhaps to help support his mother and siblings. James and John's father was instituionalized in 1876, so both boys were quite young.
James settled,married and raised his family in New Brunswick, Canada where most of his descendants live today.
I would love to see any pictures you have.My aunt had some family pictures that are unmarked, but I believe them to be of John and his younger brother Alexander who also immigrated to the US.
If you could send me a copy, I would really appreciate it.I also have a picture of the boys as children I can share.
Can you confirm his children?
