James Kennedy Dudgeon-Scotland to NY

I am trying to research Dudgeon/Fitzgerald family. My father-in-law's mother was Mildred Dudgeon, born 10/13/1901 in Brooklyn, NY. Her parents were James Kennedy Dudgeon, who was born in 1874 in Glasglow, Scotland, d. 1935, m. Elizabeth Beck, b. 1875 in Brooklyn. James Kennedy dudgeon's mother was a Seaton from Ireland. Elizabeth Beck Dudgeon was of German decent. James Kennedy Dudgeon came to U.S. in 1880's, joined Teamster's Union (Brewery). He loaned Sir Thomas Lipton money on the boat on their way to U.S. (Lipton Soup Co.). Was told Sir Thomas never repayed James. James & Elizabeth had four children: Emily, Jimmy, Ann, & Mildred. James Kennedy Dudgeon had a female relative on his mother's side who was one of six ladies-in-waiting to Mary Queen of Scotts. This woman's father was an Earl. I really don't know what a lady-in-waiting means, but have heard of it.
