Thanks for writing and providing the information. I do appreciate it and it was something I did not know.
In my Gen Forum posting I remarked about having ancestors who were of the de Brus family of southern Scotland and North England in Yorkshire. These were ancestors of a gateway ancestor from 1620 - Richard More. The de Brus/Bruce family were the lords of Skelton Castle at Skelton-in-Cleveland in medieval times as well as being the Lords of Annandale in Scotland. They were the ancestors of Scots hero Robert the Bruce. Here is a very nice informational site about the subject of Skelton-in-Cleveland and the Brus family(and nice music): http://homepage.ntlworld.com/bandl.danby/Index.htmlhttp://homepage.ntlworld.com/bandl.danby/Index.html
In my American ancestry is the Skelton family line who came from Virginia and worked their way to Indiana, arriving about 1800. Here is the link to that family in my ancestry: http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:1833111&id=I557565389http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:1833111&id=I557565389 This Skelton family is the same line as for the famous old time Indiana comedian Richard "Red" Skelton.
