Thanks for writing and providing the information. I do appreciate it and it was something I did not know.
In my Gen Forum posting I remarked about having ancestors who were of the de Brus family of southern Scotland and North England in Yorkshire. These were ancestors of a gateway ancestor from 1620 - Richard More. The de Brus/Bruce family were the lords of Skelton Castle at Skelton-in-Cleveland in medieval times as well as being the Lords of Annandale in Scotland. They were the ancestors of Scots hero Robert the Bruce.
Here is a very nice informational site about the subject of Skelton-in-Cleveland and the Brus family(and nice music):
In my American ancestry is the Skelton family line who came from Virginia and worked their way to Indiana, arriving about 1800. Here is the link to that family in my ancestry:
This Skelton family is the same line as for the famous old time Indiana comedian Richard "Red" Skelton.
