I have my fathers passport and it says his name was
John Athol Menzies, born in Coatbridge, Scotland in 1905. He arrived in the U.S.A. in 1926. Somewhere along the line his surname changed to Stewart.
I have a cousin living in Scotland but I havent heard from him in a couple of years. He is as much in the dark on family history as I am. I did hear from his ex-wife last June but nothing since. My cousins surname is Stewart.
John Stewart

Would like to hear from you. I do know that there are
several menzies in around Pierceton, Indiana.
There is a cemetery that is nothing but menzies.
i have a picture of the coat of arms, and a family tree.
That some one put together. If you would like a copy,
I would be happy to send you a copy. Also a picture
of the castle where they live. Thanks!

I have little to no information on this side of my family. I have no idea how the name changed from Menzies to Stewart. My cousin also is in the dark about it. His father, my uncle, knew nothing. He was younger than my father. My uncle was Robert Stewart. My cousins last known address was in Kirkcaldy, Fife. Menzies may have been my grandmothers maiden name, I have no way of knowing.

Hi Linda,

My great-grandfather was a Menzie/Menzies and I was wondering if you wouldn't mind sending me a picture of the Menzies Castle in Scotland or the pic of the coat of arms? I would be really interested :). Thanks
