In Reply to: Connecting the gaps from 1400s - 1600s by Jason McDaniel of 1660

Jason - I wrote a reply earlier which dealt with Robert Barnhill's father, Samuel. I ran across a document written in 1938 by Leonard Loren Barnhill that contains some information you may be interested in. This has to do with Robert's cousin, David and where the family comes from. The text is, "The village of Barnhill is of Monifieth parish, Forfashire, (Angus) and situated on the main line from Dundee to Forfar. Four and a half miles east-northeast of of Broughty Ferry, Scottish Gazetteer. However, what once was quiet countryside is now part of the larger city of Dundee." If you are looking for the origins of our Barnhill ancestors, I hope this points you in the right direction. - Stan -
