I'm tickled by your speedy reply.From what I've seen so far, the Walstons were indeed lowland Scots.There's a Walston Parish in Lenarkshire and Rusty Walston told me of a will in Green Lea which is in the same general area.I've seen the William Walston patriots in the members only DAR section but I have never seen solid evidence of our Henry's parents.Have you?
I will share anything I can discover in Scotland.I'm wondering if the name is a derivative of Wallace.At some point, I searched for a different spelling and Wallace was mentioned but have not seen that again.William Wallace wife was from Lenarkshire and the least I think I could do in Scotland would be to go to the parish to ask questions of those who live there now. I will look, ask and prod to see what I can find for us.Nancy Knoll Kalbach
PS I was remarried on December 31, 2010 so my new name is Mc Pherson though it has not been changed with DAR as yet.I'm the treasurer of my chapter here and we want to keep it simple until the officers are changed in another few weeks. Nancy
