James McEwen- B.1717 D.1766
by Jennifer McEwen-Valdovinos
Hello, I am new to researching my family history.
I have started on ancesty.com and traced my family back to James McEwen and his wife Isabella McEwen, who left from Perthshire, Scotland in 1746 and landed in Pennsylvanian.
I would love to know find out more on them...
As in why would the have emigrated to America at this time? Or anything else I could about them.
I know James' parents are Norman Huge McEwen, and Caroline Ann Dunn, but beyond their names I don't know anything, where they are from or anything. Any help or suggestions short of actually going to Scotland would be appreciated. Thank you guys.
Also, a funny tid-bit I named my children Isabella, and James before ever thinking of doing research. :-)
