More confusion:
There was also some Speculation from my Uncles that Our family came over first as Indentured servants, and there was an intermarriage with a native american. There is also the story that they were involved in some way with the whiskey rebellion. Again this is speculation. I am confident though that we did come here originally from somewhere on the British Isles. Can only guess as to whether it is Scottish, Scottish-Irish, Welsh, or even Saxon-English.
