Mr. Connors:

Thank you for sharing your knowledge of migration to Scotland and for all the time you spend searching my family names. I am very grateful to you. I am currently recovering from foot surgery and dealing with a few other distractions. I hope in a few weeks to be able to followup on your excellent suggestions for further research.

Since my original posting I believe I have found one of the James and Sarah Davidson's sons (Hugh, John and James Davidson) that their father said moved to Scotland. Hugh is found in the 1861 census for Scotland on Ancestry:
