I wonder if we are related? Then again, we al are aren't we.
My gg grandfather George Affleck came to America as a boy and settled in Philadelphia. He became a Naturalized US citizen in 1880. I have been trying to link him back to the old world. I know he was born abt 1854/55. My grandfather left notes behind which indicate that his father's name was George.
It's hard to find a George whose dad is George in that time frame but I discovered a record in Roxburghshire.
It lists: George Affleck...head..age 27..brn Hawick ,, Roxburghshire...Woolen stockingmaker Helen Affleck..wife..age 39..brn Jedburgh, Roxburgh...housewife George Affleck..son..age 7..brn Hawick Joseph Affleck..son..age 2..brn Hawick
There was also a Helen Maxwell (37), Helen Messer (15) and a David Murray (7) living with them as boarders at 6 Kirkgate Hawick.
Now the George in the US was married in 1876 to Elizabeth Rickard and had the following children: Henry 1877 (Named for Elizabeth's Father Henry) George 10-12-1879 (Named for his Grandfather?) *Joseph 9-24-1883* (Named for his Uncle?) Fannie May-1881 (???) Samuel Aug-1895 (Named for Elizabeth's Brother) And 1 unknown child in 1894 (???)
Do you have infor on the Affleck's in Hawick, Roxburgh, Scotland?
