Wonder if you have any of the ancestors of the folks you mentioned from Aberdeen?
I have a William Adams(think his dad was also a William) that wound up in the Santa Clara, Santa Cruz area of CA and married an Elizabeth O'Connor who had been born in Quebe Canada in around 1850 or so.
If any information I'd be very interested.
Elizabeth had several sibblings all born in Quebec, but family was in CA by the 1860 census.
Elizabeth, Jane, Matthew, Thomas, Patrick, Catherine, and Margaret, were the childrens names(O'Connors)
Matthew and Patrick wound up marrying my grandfathers(Patrick Bradley) two sister's in CA Mary & Margaret respectively.
