James Scott, born approx 1840, Midlothian, Scotland, is my gg grandfather, he married Mary Jane McDowell, Aug 1865, then shortly after emmigrated to New Zealand on the 'Robert Henderson'. James had three brothers, unsure of names. Any information on his parents, brothers, or Mary McDowells family would be greatly appreciated.

Louise,
Thanks for your reply. I have only managed to take it as far back as James Scott b. 1840 and as yet been unable to find any info about his parents, however they may be related to your husbands family so any information you have on the Scotts from Midlothian would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,

Hi Heidi:
Thanks for the reply,I don't have much really.I have a lot on the Scotts but other than Herbert and and his son Robert[also Roberts wife] they're all here in the States.I'm hoping I'll find some nice Scott from Scotland to do a look-up for me.!!
Here's what I have right now.Herbert Scott was born abt.1734 in Edinburg,Scotland.
Robert Scott his son was born abt.1760 in Scotland and died 1786 in Shelby county Kentucky. Robert was married to Winifred Greenabout 1780 in Woodford County,Kentucky.she was born in 1764 in Wales.
I went into the Scotland website in Rootsweb but don't understand how you search. I know it costs so much money for I believe it's 12 or 24 hrs.[don't remember which right now.
but I'll find out.what part of Australia are you in Heidi? I talk to australia on Ham Radio.
thanks
Louise

.thanks very much for the query,but I honestly don't know about the siblings yet.I've not got that far.I have found Herbert Scott which I believe is James' grandfather.I could be wrong.!!Herbert was born in 1840 in Midlothian,Scotland. it's possible that he had a brother named James.
My James Granville Scott was born in Kentucky between 1847 and 1848 in Kentucky.after Herbert and his family came to America from Scotland.James was buried in Social Hill Cemetery ,Arkansas.Pat if this sounds like your James,then we need to exchange more info and maybe we can put them together. sincerely Louise

Hello Heidi
You inquired if my James Scott had 9 Siblings,and I don't know the answer to that question at this time.All I have found on the Scotts so far is a Herbert Scott.born 1734 in Midlothian Scotland.
I don't know anything about him other than he came to America and the next one I found was James Granville Scott,and his wife Lunetta Jane Bagley.
the ancestors I have for Herbert is
1 Robert Scott born about 1760 in Scotland.
2 John A Scott[child of Robert
I can't find any siblings for Herbert ot James.
If you think this is the same family as yours.please let me know.I'd appreciate any information.

Hi Louise,
I have recently found that James Scotts, born 1840, his parents were William Scott and Mary Earsman, as far as I know he only had three brothers so I do not think this is the same family as the one your researching, however keep in contact, we still may be able to help one another.
