Re: Jane Carruthers and Hugh Scott
That is a problem we are all having, is find records of the Carruthers movement's, trying to sort out which of came from Sct. and those from Ireland, there are also no , records kept by the Scot's giving any note to those that left Scotland. An I'm not reffering to 1800 movements.
We are now working on this issue thru DNA .of this subject ,both Carruthers and Scott are working on the problem. At this time we do have some some Idea as too Which Scott line interacts with the Carruthers line . Thru Dna we hope to refine our our hunts in the paper trail.
So far for Carruthers I have brought 10 to the test table .We need more Carruthers to test .Should be inconntact with any please send them my way. but to give you an idea this is whom we have tested.
1 Sct, 3 Irish, 6 Americans. As for Scott's , I don't recall how many Charlie has tested, some where around 20.
Charlie is a Scott-Carruthers decendant , we have a match between Charlie's line (John) , Alexander's line, and one claiming to be decendant of Hugh Scott. they all show as family, which is supporting a theory , but will some time before we find paper fact to the theory.
If you are interested as to what we've found out about Carruthers thru Dna please contact me via email
