Surnames: UMLACH, IMLACH
Does anyone have a copy of the above book Pub: Dobson, David and could let me know what information is on page 28 regarding John UMLACH. I have a citation but have not been able to obtain a copy of the book from our library system.

I know John Umlach was born in Scotland c. 1722 and fought in the French Indian War, moving to Nova Scotia with his wife Isabella MacDonald and three children in 1762. I have not been able to determine how he got to America or where he married. His children, James, John and Isabella were born in Pensylvania in 1757-1759, but I have no documentation for this. I am hoping that the information in this book will help a little. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate you help. This is my first venture into American Genealogy.

Many thanks, Carol

Carol, Have you heard anything about the book you requested on Scotish Soldiers in Colonial America? I am interested in this. My 4th great grandfather, John Shannon was born 1754/5, Washington County, MD. He was married to Jane Dunlap. Down through the years our families have been told that John's father served in the French & Indian War and he later on, drowned in a stream of water between MD. and PA. It is unknown who his mother was, but that he did have sibling's. I don't know if John's father was born in Scotland or the Colonies; but the Shannon family originated in Argyle, Scotland. My email address is: Irishlovey@aol.com Hope to hear from you soon. Dorothy

I seen your post dated a couple years ago. I, too, had a grandfather who fought in the French Indian War. He was a Captain and a DAR Patriot (I dont know what that means).

His name is WILLIAM DOUGLASS b-c.1720, Chrles Co., MD. d-1786, Franklin Co., PA. Married a "Rachael" in 1746.

The reason I'm asking is because I hit a brick wall at WILLIAM DOUGLASS and Im hopeing that searching a different avenue may bring a result.

If you can help share info you may have aquired, I would be so greatful,
Sincerely,
Wendy Douglas~Winchell

Wendy, just reading your post and wanted to let you know what DAR Patriot means... DAR, stands for, "Daughters of the American Revolution". I am a member of the DAR, under my Patriot, Captain Samuel Pringle. Hope this is the answer to "don't know what this means", in your post. Take care..Karen

Surnames: Douglass / Douglas
Hello Karen,
Thank-you for your help. I did figure out what The DAR is and also The SAR. And I'm so new at this DAR, like becoming a member, why, and what does becoming a DAR member entail?
The SAR did send me information on my William Douglass (which is spelled with one s). His rank was Patriotic Service in Maryland. He furnished supplies in Washington County. They also had given me information on my relative James Parker.
I hope you dont mind my questions. I wonder if you could help me get info from the DAR on my William Douglass, or would it be the same information? See, I still cannot get the last name to Williams wife Rachel. They have her listed as Rachel X. Forgive me... I'm new at this....
Thanks!
Wendy~

I am so sorry I did not reply to you all. It was so long ago that I posted my question I had forgotten all about it.
I never did get any responses about the book, and I am still trying to find information about John Umlach, his wife and children, the latter being born in Philadelphia.
Unfortunately I do not have any answers for your questions either. Good luck.
Carol
