Dear Corey: I enjoyed reading the detailed reply regarding your Smythe Family of Methven, Scotland's history. In researching my Jeffrey Family of Scotland and Its genealogical history, I was told many years go by an aunt that within my Jeffrey Family was a connection to the Smythe Family. Have you run across any connection between the Smythe Family and the Jeffrey Family of Scotland? My great-grandfather, John Jeffrey, migrated to America when he stowed away as a very, very young man, as family legend says, "in one of his father's ships". He was born in 1843.Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Carole H. Melson, Marietta, Georgia USA.
