The Stolen Children of Scotland in the 1700’s

 

The children are stolen under their parents noses in Scotland. The church bells are ringing in the towns and the men arm themselves against the English. It’s the English that have stolen the children. These children are on a ship to a work camp in Canada. Eventually my great-grandfather escaped with another little boy and crossed the border in Michigan. He could not read or write and when pronouncing his name they put it down wrong. That name would stay with the American family for centuries.
