: : Champ, I don't know anything about Capt. MacKays Highland Coy but look forward to learning more. My father celebrated his Scottish ancestry by playing bagpipes from 1967 until his death two years ago. Highland games, Burns dinners and various other Scottish events were popular in my family. Have fun making your sporran!
: Siyo Jayne ---
: thank you! In the future maybe I'll post a brief history about the Queen's Rangers & their Highland Coy [Rev War].
: Incidently, the Queen's Rangers was founded by Robert Rogers of Rogers Rangers fame [F&I War].
: What clan is your family? Mine are Gordon, MacKay, & Stewart
: [plus Irish Moore's & McRenoylds :-) ]...
: As all here can tell you, I'm also a member of the Southern Cherokee Nation [one of the four major Cherokee bands].
: Throw in a bit of English & German and I'm a real Heinz 57! [snicker]...
: Anyhow, as Old Crone said, we're generally a civil lot here, most of us, except *Mr. Girty*, have had their shots ;-) so again, welcome or as the Cherokee say O'siyo!
And siyo to you, Champ. To answer your question, the family clan is Anderson. I also have Cherokee ancestry - I'm a whopping 1/16 which is the minimum one can officially claim (or so I've been told). A gentleman at Cherokee Res. told me that since the casino business started all applications are being denied; they were swamped with apps. as everyone wanted to be Cherokee (I guess to claim rights to the business). I don't know if this is true. Maybe someone out there knows and can clue me in.
Today's picture of the river walk reminded me of Hawkeye's snide comment to Duncan about how to go west. Great line.
