My Aunt, who was born Greenlaw, has been researching them for years. Found quite a bit in Ireland. My grandfather, William, was born in NY. My father, William, was born in NY. I know there are a lot of Williams, Janes, Elisa Jane, Elizabeths,. If I can get more, I'll e-mail more.

My grandmother's maiden name was Laura Greenlaw. Her ancestors came over from Scotland in the 1700's. There were 7 brothers I believe. Some went to Canada and the others to Maine. I would love to find out more information.

I would be interested in knowing who the seven brothers are. It is said that my either grand father or great grand father was the seventh son of a seventh son.
I do not have the info with me here, but will try to get it to you as soon as I can.

Surnames: The first Greenlaws on Deer Isle, Maine
We heard the same story about our Greenlaws, that we are related to the son of one of the seven sons. The parents are William and Jane. The names of the sons are (if I have this right) William, Jonathan, Ebenezer, Charles, James and Alexander. It says that in 1762 the parents and five of the seven sons were farming on Deer Isle, Maine. My notes also state that a John Greenlaw was probably the son of the oldest of the seven. Let me know if you need or want any other info from me. I have brief Greenlaw history written by Charles R.Greenlaw and I would gladly scan it for you and send it via e-mail. Hope this has helped.
Adrienne.
