|Many members of two Ayrshire families |
immigrated to Michigan during the
1830's and 1840's. They were the family
of John Millikin and Jenette Reid of
Craigie by Kilmarnock in Ayrshire, Scotland,
and several children of John Morton and
Ann Wilson of the same village.
These families were early settlers of
"The Scotch Settlement" in Lapeer and
Macomb Counties in Michigan.
This web page contains descendancy charts,
family histories, and sources for further
information on these Michigan pioneers.
We hope to connect with Morton and Millikin
descendants, to share information and stories.
"Not to know what happened before we were
born is to remain perpetually a child.
For what is the worth of a human life
unless it is woven into the life of
our ancestors …"(Cicero)
