My mother's maiden name was Affleck. She has an obituary column clipped out of a newspaper when her grandfather died that traces his lineage to James Affleck and Marion Gladstone of Scotland. My grandfather was Charles Eston Affleck of Clark County,VA b.3 May 1895. His parents were William Arthur Affleck and Gettia B. Carper.William Arthur Affleck was the son of James R. Affleck of Scotland and Mary Baker of Shenanadoah County, Va. James R. was the son of James Affleck and Marion Gladstone,both of Scotland. They had immigrated to America in 1823. Marion Gladstone was the first cousin of William E. Gladstone, the Prime Minister of England. I'd be interested in any information about the Affleck family in Scotland prior to James and Marion. Does anyone know the name of the ship they came over on?
