Thank you for your help. My uncle also found out that Oliver's parents were William and Emily. Is that the William, who was Thomas' son and do you know anymore of the ancestry. I have found out that they original came through Charleston, SC. That our ancestors came from Inverness, Scotland. We are from the Mcduff Clan. The name Kinloch, which Kinlaw is an American deviation, means North side of the lake. The north side of Loch Ness to be exact. We are the McDuff's from Kinloch. Then the Mcduff part got dropped. The Kinloch were part of the Highland Clearances out of Scotland by England so the Highlands could be made for something useful like raising sheep. Our ancestors were very proud, strong-willed, lovers of the land and close family units who refused for years to let England control us. If anyone in our family would like the information I have found send your mailing address to my e-mail address jlmarsh@duplin.net

Sincerely,
Judy Lynn Marshburn
