I am looking for any and all information on SACKETT, Curran and d'Amboise.
Simon Sackett, John Sackett and family came on the Ship Lyon to America February of 1631.
I am also looking for information on Shaw and Gilliam that came to Oregon via The Oregon Trail in 1844.
I am also looking for information on Haley, Eli, Davis, Curran, d'Amboise, Zuber, Bergeron and Booth.
Come and take a look at my family and see if you fit in some where!

The clan name comes from its first chief, Gillichattan Mor, meaning the great servant of St. Catan, whose abbey was situated at Kilchattan on the island of Bute in the Firth of Clyde. The clan Chattan is a confederation of tribes. Through it, small clans gained stength by joining forces to avoid being overwhelmed by more powerful neighbours, such as the MacDonalds of the Isles.
