Mother's side of the family Clan Donnacaidh (Reed, sept of Robertson) and my father's side were from Fife County. Came over to the US in 1853. I'm the big guy with the kilt on..... [img]http://albums.photopoint.com/j/View?u=951120&a=6955614&p=29887540&Sequence=0&res=high[/img]

Sorry that I missed this until I did a search... Lamont Highland Clan Argle-Sutherland region of Scotland Actually my family is a Sept of the Lamont Clan. I do have the Kilt, and all the good stuff that goes with it, except for a Dirk...looking for a good one. As soon as I can find the wedding pics, I will scan a pic of me in my Kilt along with the other two that showed up in similar fashion...the Piper and the Drummer.

I like to read the Declaration of Arbroath every now and again...I get the same feeling reading it as I do reading the Declaration of Independence. Erickm......my ancestors stole cattle from your ancestors.... [}:D] The Lindsey's and the Donnacaidh's (also known as Robertson) are Border Clans...meaning they lived along the border between Scotland and England. The Nixons, Kerrs, and Armstrongs are also prominent Border Clans. The Border was a lawless place, especially prior to the Union of 1707 which joined England and Scotland. Cattle thieving, extorsion, kidnapping, and murder were popular pastimes on both sides of the Border. The Donnacaidh's and the Lindseys were usually rivals and rustled cattle from each other as often as possible. I'm willing to bury the hatchet if you are.... [BD]

Proud Scotish/German here. No names, but my clan was strongly represented in Braveheart. Couldn't be more proud of my heritage.

Outstanding! It is a well known fact that a platoon of Highlanders is more than equal to a company of any other fighting force on the face of the Earth...

Oh, for a brief history: The Gow Clan goes back to Pictish origin( I know they were pagens,but we've moved forward since then.)Coming from the Ancient Invernesshire Family,before the 1100's. William Wallace would be proud!!!

Clan MacFarland here. "......none were more warlike than the MacFarlands, described as thieves, cuthroats, and murderers....." Taken from some of my old fmily history material. We actually had a song that went "Off to lift the cattle we go!" And the moon ws often called "MacFarlands Lantern" because of our nightly cattle thefts. LOCH SLOY!!!
