Hello! I am writing from Denver. My mother was an Oman. Our branch came from the Orkney Islands by way of Germany in 1760. It's a long story, but there has been talk of other Omans moving down to the mainland of Scotland. Some even living in Sweden and Russia. This all took place before the Revolutionary War. Do you have any simular "stories" in your family tree? The first of our branch of Omans, George, in North America, settled in PA and then his children homesteaded in Northwest Ohio. There are Omans in Michigan, Indiana, Oregon, and CA. I would be interested in talking with you v e-mail.
